Broken shuffle on iOS 14.4 - Workarounds useless


Broken shuffle on iOS 14.4 - Workarounds useless







iPhone 12 Pro

Operating System

iOS 14.4


My Question or Issue

After years of a perfectly shuffle, it stopped ~6 months ago. Playing the same 6-10 songs over and over again. All sugested workarounds here or elsewhere in the web _do not_ work at all. Logging out, wiping the local data, deinstalling the app, device restart, clean install, ... 

So - What is Spotify doing to get it fixed now?

From what I've learned searching for solutions over the last weeks: I'm definitely not the only one facing those issues.


(Hint for Sonos-users: Their app works fine for Spotify incl. shuffle!)

(Bonus: I'm typing this again since you portal here posted an error after klicking "post" ...)
