My Question or Issue
I've noticed (especially for Spotify-made playlists) when I shuffle, the same few songs play constantly. I've especially noticed this when listening to Deep Dive: 00s Rock that, without fail, when I shuffle, the first 25 songs play. I've closed the app, reopened, unfollowed and refollowed the playlist, tried on different devices, and still no luck. It's been happening to me for weeks. There have been times where the exact same progression of songs pops up in my queue after I reshuffle (in a 500 song playlist, I don't even want to know the odds of that).
I understand Spotify's shuffle isn't pure random selection. I also understand some playlists are curated in such a way that they want you to listen in a certain order. However, this playlist is 32 hours long. I don't want to have to listen for an entire day just to hear a new song.
I've noticed a few other posts that mention something similar to this but they're like 5 years old with no attention. I can't give many steps to reproduce other than to just shuffle the playlist. I don't have it downloaded, just followed and stored in a folder. Please fix this! I really want to listen to this playlist lol
Solved! Go to Solution.
We understand where you're coming from.
As @Jeremy mentioned, this is expected behavior for Spotify-created playlists, but no worries it doesn't affect your own playlists.
We really value your feedback as it helps us to improve the app, and we'll make sure to pass this on to the right folks here at Spotify.
We hope this clear things up. If you need help with anything else, just let us know.
