About this app

Have you noticed that Spotify does not play truly random songs in your playlists, liked songs, artists etc when shuffle is turned on?
Have you noticed that Spotify keeps playing the exact same series of songs every single time even though shuffle is on?
Have you noticed that enabling the shuffle feature on Spotify does not actually get your songs shuffled?
I noticed this too.
I scoured the internet for information on how to shuffle on Spotify but all I found were websites that would slowly create a new random playlist for me to listen to every time I wanted to listen to music on Spotify.
They weren't good enough. So, I decided to build my own Spotify shuffler and Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random came to life.

Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random takes control of Spotify and forces it to play truly random tracks in real-time. No more waiting for some new playlist to be created increasing clutter in your Spotify account.

To shuffle music on Spotify, simply open Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random, click the "Enable Shuffling" checkbox and give it authorization to access your Spotify account.
You will see 2 notifications in your notification bar showing that Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random is running and connected to Spotify.
You can now close Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random, open Spotify and play songs from your playlists, liked songs, artists etc. Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random will push truly random tracks from your collections into your queue ensuring that you hear truly random tracks.
Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random will even start itself automatically if you restart your device. It's simply the best Spotify shuffler.

When you open Virtual Shuffle – Truly Random, you will see two options that will dictate how it will shuffle songs for you:
1. Normal Shuffle
2. Smart shuffle

Normal shuffle is well… normal. It’s completely random. It will randomly choose a track from your collection to play.
Smart shuffle on the other hand is random as well but it keeps track of the songs it has already played in any given collection so that it will not play them again until all songs in that collection have been played. This ensures that you will hear every song in any collection randomly but exactly once before it resets itself.
This track record persists even if you change the source of the music (Playlist/liked songs etc) or restart your device.
I personally prefer and use smart shuffle all the time.

I bought this app before it was subscription based, and it works exactly as it's described. It'll fix what Spotify refuses to. You'll hear songs from your playlist you haven't heard in years. There's a lot of angry people in the reviews about the subscription based update, however people have to realize everything is getting more expensive. This guy made an awesome app, and he just needs to make enough money to cover the server cost. Don't let them confuse you, this app is worth a small sub fee

This app works great, it solved all my shuffle problems. Unfortunately the app has moved to a subscription model (for good reasons, servers are expensive) so I will be uninstalling. I can't justify a subscription to fix another subscription. If there were a larger, upfront one time payment instead a subscription then I would consider it. However, when I first paid for the app, that was the case and now my payment means nothing. I don't trust that it won't happen again.
