Spotify is announced it will be fully separating the play and shuffle buttons across the entire app.
Providing you’re a paying subscriber on the Premium tier, of course.
The music streaming app will begin rolling out individual play and shuffle buttons for playlists and artist pages. Those using Spotify’s free tier will continue to only see the shuffle button.
Spotify made the decision to let listeners play albums in order, but has stubbornly stuck to shuffle in other places.
The Swedish company’s fondness for shuffle has, occasionally, drawn criticism from artists.
Last year, Adele tweeted the company saying she and other musicians ‘don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason.’
‘Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening.’
The company says it will be rolling out the change ‘in the coming weeks’ and it will be reflected on both iOS and Android.
‘This new change will allow you to choose the mode you prefer at the top of playlists and albums and listen the way you want to,’ Spotify said in a statement.
‘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.’
