Audio streaming service Spotify is completely separating its play and shuffle buttons as part of an upcoming update. The two buttons will only be available for Spotify’s Premium subscribers. The service has announced that it’s beginning to roll out individual buttons for the two functions, which will replace the combined play/shuffle button that’s currently at the top of playlists and artist pages.
“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. 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 recently announced, as reported by The Verge.
Unfortunately, users still won’t be able to play or shuffle any Spotify HiFi tracks. It’s now been almost 18 months since Spotify announced its lossless-quality streaming tier, and the company has still not rolled it out for subscribers, according to The Verge.
