Can't shuffle my YouTube Music "your likes" playlist on Android Auto
0
I recently moved my playlists to YouTube music to be ready for when Google Play is gone. One feature I liked about Google Play was that I could just thumbs up a bunch of songs, and shuffle that Thumbs Up playlist on Android Auto when I got in the car. The thumbs up playlist is now called Your Likes on YT Music. But when I either manually shuffle that playlist on Android Auto or say "Hey Google, shuffle my Your Likes playlist on YTMusic" it ends up shuffling music that's not on that playlist in with the music that is. And I end up listening to a bunch of songs I don't care about. Is anyone else having this problem? What am I doing wrong?

Having the same problem but it works if you shuffle the list on the app and then plug it in to AA. So I'm assuming it's an AA bug?

Same problem here.  Enqueuing the playlist and hitting shuffle after that also seems to not really do much in terms of shuffling either.  Of the ~550 songs on the list, the same ~10 songs be played within the first 15-20 songs once "shuffled" every time.

I am experiencing the exact same issue on Android Auto as well as my Nest hub and mini. I listen to my music the same way, shuffling all of the songs I have thumbs upped. YouTube music will only play "My Mix", which is not what I asked when I said command "Shuffle My Likes" . "My Mix" is an auto generated playlist independent of "My Likes" and is extremely repetitive to the point I can't stand it.

But yes, in Android auto, trying to shuffle "My Likes" will not actually shuffle... It only plays songs in the default order of the "My Likes" playlist. 

The switch from Google Play Music has been a pain, this being an excellent example. I continue to submit feedback in the hopes someone on the product team is listening and cares about the customers coming from Google Play Music.

YT Music is real buggy, especially with Android Auto.  Shuffling a custom playlist via Android Auto is just broken.  I am not happy with this product.

I know there were issues with the thumbs up songs being transferred from Google play music, but when I go to YT music on my phone, it's all fine, everything is there and can shuffle ok. If I get in the car and continue playing, all is ok too. But if I'm in the car using something else and go to YT Music and to My Likes, it will only shuffle through a tiny selection of songs, ones which were all added very recently. Goes round and round and never plays the other 600 songs. Infuriating. Help!

Bingo bongo, another instance here. I noticed it is heavily favoring songs I recently liked during my YT music premium subscription as well, even when shuffled. Makes me wonder how many different versions of this shuffle they have, or if it will always be weighted this way!

Super annoying.  Hundreds of songs in playlists and it shuffles the first dozen or so.

Doesn't seem to be a shuffle function if you just want to shuffle your songs, so not in any playlist.
Also, really annoyingly you can't see the track listing while a song is playing.
So far disappointed

Same issue here. Any updates?

Same damn issue.  YTM does NOT load your entire playlist as GPM did, so you only get the last 25-30 songs you liked--and that is the entire playlist (not the 1,000+ songs in my playlist.  Super damn annoying.  Happens on the desktop app as well.  You have to scroll your playlist to get all the songs to load--scroll your playlist, not your "up next" list as that only has 25-30 songs.
