The streaming service Spotify banishes the random playback function on albums. Playlists retain the Shuffle option as the default setting.

To make sure music albums are heard again, as it belongs, Spotify removes the shuffle button on all album pages. This change was concluded after singer Adele had asked for the release of her new album 30 to remove the button. So far, the shuffle button always delivered the option to play songs on albums in random order. The fact that a whole philosophy behind the arrangement of tracks hides on plates was ignored.

Even for album pages, random playback can be activated in the settings, so the function is not off the table. Only for said pages from the default settings was removed. So if you still do not want to stick to a stringent tracklist order, you can get back the shuffle function with just a few clicks.
