Can't turn off shuffle play

I have tried to turn off the new shuffle play (using the 'I'). When I push this it says I need to upgrade to premium. I already do have premium. How do I get my songs playing in their right playlist order?

If you have a premium subscription, you will be able to turn off shuffle in the iPhone app.

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community about this!

 

You can turn shuffle on for songs in Your Library, or any playlist, album, or artist profile. However, Shuffle isn’t available when listening to Radio or Daily Mix.

 

You can find more info about the Shuffle feature in this support site article.

 

Please note that if you're using a mobile device you won't be able to turn off Shuffle on playlists with this icon   unless you're on Premium. You can take a look at this video tutorial for more info.

 

Hope this helps clarify things! If there's anything else we can help with, don't hesitate to give us a shout. We'll be happy to lend a hand.

 

Have a lovely day :)

Anyone know how to turn shuffle mode off on their iphone? I tried holding down the shuffle icon but it just changes tracks? I looked inn settings too, nothing. Anyone know how to do this? I would be most grateful.

Hi Pume622,

 

You can turn off the shuffle by clicking on the i at the top of the screen whilst a track is playing.  The shuffle option will be at the bottom of the screen - green is on, grey/black is off.

 

I am currently listening to:Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra – Sibelius : Karelia Suite Op.11 : I Intermezzo from this Playlist sent to me by a customer.

 

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the help!  That had been driving me crazy.  I kept looking undert the playlist instead of the individual song playing....not the most intuitive if you ask me so thank goodness for this forum

Thanks for the answer to this - it's been bugging me for ages.  What a poor interface to hide this in "i" whilst a track is playing!!!

 

regards, Jon

Terrible, HORRIBLE, interface. Was about to cancel my subscription because this crazy shuffle issue was making me give up every time I tried to listen to a playlist. And after I turn shuffle off it STILL says Shuffle Play in Playing Now! Playlist hamdling is generally horrible, especially on iPhone. Come on guys, learn some computer science and figure out to manipulate lists! It's not that hard.

Ya. Thank you very much. I figured it out once (obviously since I had it turned on), and I have been looking for it often as well.

 

I listen to alot of classical symphonies and they should really be heard in the order they are listed ;).

 

Spotify hopefully will pick this thread up and change the interface so the "shuffle" button will be able to toggle on and off.
