Thx for help. Spotify should reeeally make the shuffle function more intuitive and easier to turn off. I almost discontinued my subscription because of this...

Hi,

I have the Free Account for the Iphone 6s Plus.  But when I press this button Spotify tells me that "You discovered a Premium Feature", in other words it tells me to upgrade to Premium.

Do you guys have Premium account?

Thanks.

The problem is once you press the shuffle button, the app will play all subsequent playlists in shuffle mode until you disable it.  However, disabling this function isn't as intuitive as it should be.  Otherwise, the aforementioned thread wouldn't be so large and growing.

Here's how to disable it.  While you're in a playlist, at the bottom of the screen the name of the artist and song appears.  To the right of it, the play or pause icon appears.

1. Press anywhere in the red circle below (in other words, don't press the play/pause icon).

2. This will bring up the album cover with even more options towards the bottom of your screen.  See image below.

3. At the very bottom will be your song options (play/pause, rewind, advance forward, etc).

 

4. Look to the very left of the play and you will see two more icons right below the timeline. These are the repeat and shuffle icons.

 

5. The shuffle icon is above the repeat icon.  If it's green, it means shuffle is enabled.  If it's white/gray, it is disabled.  Press to toggle.

 

Example below with shuffle enabled:

And when toggled, now shuffle is disabled:

Shuffle play can only be disabled if have Premium account; stuck with shuffle if free account. Following above instructions allows choice to shuffle or not, as long as have Premium account.

I have the same problem. I just pressed the 7 day free trial of premium and then i could choose to not have shuffle. Its a stupid design i think to force you to have a premium just to toggle a function that is activated upon installing the app. I don't know if the app will toggle it on again in 7 days when the trial has run out cause if it does i am sticking to spotify on PC and youtube on the phone :P
