Shuffle songs and albums in Library

To shuffle all of your music:
  1. In the YouTube Music app, go to Library .
  2. Select Songs.
  3. Select Shuffle all.
Songs you like and songs you add to your library will appear under the Songs page. These songs can also be included in your shuffle mix.
If you’ve added an album to your YouTube Music library, each individual song within that album will also appear under the Songs page. These songs can also be included in your shuffle mix.

When you sync your device files with YouTube Music, they’ll play alongside your YouTube Music library when you shuffle your songs.
