Spotify Adds Separate Play And Shuffles Buttons

With regard to music playback, Spotify is updating its app to solve a long-standing user issue, but it will cost users money to access the update.

The business revealed today that it would finally add a separate Play Button and a Shuffle Button at the top of album playlists to make it simpler to play the music how you like.

Given that user complaints have correctly highlighted a problem with the Spotify app’s general design and user experience, this decision appears odd.

The button provided was even varied among Spotify’s apps, as one reviewer who commented last year to the community forums had highlighted.

On mobile devices, the play/shuffle button was integrated with the play button, however, on desktop computers, the play button was just a conventional play button.
