“This new change will allow you to choose the mode you prefer at the top of playlists and albums and listen to the way you want to,” Spotify says. “Whether you love the joy of the unexpected with Shuffle mode, or prefer listening to tunes in order by simply pressing Play, Spotify has you covered.” Spotify offers dedicated buttons for shuffle and play- of course, for premium subscribers only

As Spotify says, “From the moment you hit play on Spotify, you decide the way you want to hear your favorite playlists or that new album you’re obsessed with.” While Spotify’s effort to turn its regular users into premium subscribers is respectable, using shuffle/play buttons to make a difference between paid and unpaid users was perhaps a bit strange. The company has recently announced that it expects to reach 450 million users by October. Also, it wants to enter the areas of business, like audiobooks.

Story Highlights

  • For its premium customers, Spotify is removing the combination play/shuffle button and replacing it with two distinct buttons for each function. Users of iOS and Android devices should anticipate the new update in the upcoming weeks, according to the business. According to Spotify, the objective of introducing such a function is to allow customers greater flexibility over how they listen to music. Currently, the app just has one button that can be used for both play and shuffle. However, the new buttons make managing the playlist queue easier for premium customers.

  • Spotify’s combined shuffle/play button previously created dissatisfaction among some famous artists. The artists claim that they expect fans to listen to their album in the original running order. However, the combined shuffle/play button doesn’t allow for this. Last year, Adele tweeted, “We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason.” These complaints forced Spotify to put a play button by default on album pages. The premium subscribers are now receiving this feature for the whole app.
