Hi @dxon012,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Do you have trouble playing in Shuffle Mode on all of your devices or just one of them? 

 

You can try to run a clean reinstall of the app, which includes clearing the app cache. Follow this device specific Spotify Guide for best results.

 

Let us know how you get on with this after the clean reinstall 🙂

it happens on the phone and tablet, the computer is okey. And, without local files it also breaks.

In this case it seems to be related directly your active account.

 

We suggest that you do an account transfer from your old account to your new one, and then close the old account to prevent any confusion in the future. You can find all the information you need in this and this article to be able to do that.

Hey @dxon012,

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

 

That a clean reinstall solves the issue temporarily leads us to believe that something is interfering with the cache on your devices. Could you let us know the approximate number of songs you're trying to import from your local files?

 

Also, does the shuffle icon in the now playing view appear green when you try to turn it on as described here? How about the queue order, does it get rearranged? We'd appreciate it if you attach to your next reply a screenshot or recording of the issue and we'll happily take a closer look.

 

Keep us posted. We’ll keep an eye out for your reply.

have about 20 songs from local files. When I enter random playback in the songs I saved, everything is fine, the queue also works, but when I turn on the random playback even by the button at the bottom (arrows), after playing 5 popular songs, the artist's radio turns on and it always is. I tried on 3 devices (iphone 6+, ipad pro, iphone 11pro) and it's always the same, maybe the spotify update will help? Does anyone know if one is approaching?

i cant send a videos because they are bigger then 5mb soo i drop it on this site https://imgur.com/a/jD2IDuG

Hey again @dxon012,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Another useful step in are to change the source folder of the local files on the pc. The steps are: Uninstall Spotify on both devices > create a new folder somewhere else on the pc and move the local files there > install Spotify again > remove any potential source folders and add the new one > download the playlist again.

 

Also - can you let us know which version of the app you have?

Cheers!

I did all the steps recommended by you, maybe it will change something, I will let you know after a few hours (it always works as expected after reinstallation, unfortunately after about 1-2 hours it breaks again). I have version 8.5.86 on my phone and tablet
