How Do I Turn Off Shuffle Play in Spotify?

Spotify is a popular music streaming service that allows users to access and listen to millions of songs on their computer, tablet, or mobile device. One of the great features of Spotify is the ability to shuffle play your favorite songs or albums.

This allows you to listen to music in a random order, which can be great for discovering new music. However, sometimes you may want to turn off shuffle play and listen to an album in its intended order.

Fortunately, it is easy to turn off shuffle play in Spotify. To do this, simply locate the “Shuffle Play” button at the bottom left hand corner of the screen.

It looks like two arrows in a circle and will be highlighted if it is turned on. Click on this button and it will turn off shuffle play and go back to playing your songs in order.

If you are using Spotify on a mobile device, the process is slightly different but just as easy. On an iPhone, tap the “Now Playing” bar at the bottom of your screen. This will open up a new page with controls for playback options.

At the top of this page you will see a “Shuffle” option – simply click on this and it will turn off shuffle play for your current song or album. On an Android device, open up your playlist and select “Options” (the three dots located next to each song). From here select “Turn Off Shuffle Play” and this will deactivate shuffle mode.


Turning off Shuffle Play in Spotify is easy whether you are using it on a computer or mobile device. All you need to do is locate the Shuffle icon (on computers) or Toggle Shuffle option (on phones) and click/tap on it to disable Shuffle Play for your current song or album.
