Spotify’s constant search for improvement has led this streaming service to grow and offer more and more to users. This reality is increasingly visible, with mobile apps being the biggest beneficiaries of these changes.

Of course, not all changes have a big impact and sometimes there are small changes that completely change Spotify. This can be seen now with the latest novelty, which is just a Play button, but which gives users great freedom.




Simple change, but it changes a lot on Spotify

At first sight this new change on Spotify could be a change that could have little impact on users. It's just the separation of the Play button from the shuffle button, something that will be visible within days and only on Premium accounts.

The decision to make this separation seems logical to Spotify, just to give the user the freedom they might want. If you want to listen to a complete and followed album or want to listen completely randomly, everything is simpler.

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. If you love the joy of the unexpected with Shuffle mode, or prefer to listen to songs in order by simply pressing Play, Spotify has you covered.

This possibility to define the way to listen to albums or playlists already existed, but it was only accessible in a less visible area. Thus, and to make this use simpler, this novelty appears.

Easier to choose how to listen to albums or playlists

The decision to only offer this change on Spotify Premium accounts is tied to the nature of what the free service offers. In many cases it is only possible to listen to albums and playlists in random mode, so this change would not be useful.

Interestingly, this change comes after several artists asked Spotify to remove Shuffle from their albums, as they understand that this is not the most correct way to listen to them. The change comes to mobile apps in the coming weeks and will be the big news.
