[Idea] Activate completely random shuffle mode in settings

Hi all, 

 

As you may have already noticed, the shuffle mode in Spotify is not completely random. Instead of having equal probabilities between all songs, it seems like Spotify's algorithm provides different weights to individual songs. This can be very frustrating, as you will hear the same songs over and over again, while other songs almost never occur in shuffle mode. 

 

For that reason, it would be great if Spotify's developers could add the functionality to toggle between completely random shuffle mode or Spotify's algorithm, which might still be default. 

 

Please let me know if you experience similar issues and let me know what you think!

 

My apologies for posting this in the wrong board. I could not post this in the new ideas board.
