Shuffle problem with iPhone app

Concert Regular

There doesn't seem to be a Shuffle option. When you turn it on there is no option to turn it off.

 

This means every playlist you select shuffles songs unless you delete the app and re-install.

 

Is there a solution to this?

You should be able to turn shuffle off, yes.  First, while playing something in your playlist, tap the "i" button in the upper left:

 

 

Once you've done that, the shuffle button should be on the lower right.  Tap that, and it should turn from green grey.  Your playlist should now no longer shuffle.

Ok, i think this IS the actual thread and I'm happy to report the fix above worked. Strange that the active shuffle icon is burried there. Thanks!

Wow, thank you OP, this was driving me bananas for the past six months.  I swear I selected every single screen, but the main shuffle icon just shuffled the songs and started playing them.  This is a TERRIBLE user experience. 

 

Of course, I must have turned this on originally, so I likely have myself to blame for the original state :)

 

Thanks again!

@Jerryka13 - Are you using Spotify unlimited or free? 

 

If so be aware you can't turn the shuffle mode off, that is a premium only feature.

The solution works, but shuffling one album should not make all my music default to shuffle forever.  I just wanted to shuffle the one time.  Everyday, I am NOT shufflin!

It would be helpful if you told us, or linked us to, the existing topic discussing this issue, because I haven't found it yet.

 

Spotify always, ALWAYS, shuffles my playlists. I don't want them to shuffle. I put them in a particular order for a reason. Is there a simple fix for this?? I swear shuffle is turned off on my app.
