When I play music from the liked playlist in the YouTube Music App and shuffle the list I end up with pretty much the same list over and over again. Is this intentional or a bug? The list has well over 1000 songs in it, so I would expect a variety in what comes up. It also repeats songs rather frequently. After about 15-20 songs I will start to see songs I just heard begin repeating.

Same here. Google better get on this, especially with how much the monthly charge is...

Edit: Android user with up to date OS & latest app version.

Same issue here with just a normal playlist I've put together. Just over 1,300 songs. when you view the playlist it's in a rough artist order as that's how they were added. Shuffle will play 95% songs from the first 50 or so items in the list and then random ones from elsewhere. What's the point of shuffle that doesn't work. If I wanted to hear the same songs over and over I'd just listen to the radio.

Same here created my own youtube music playlist with 265 songs. I have around 30 music playlist on youtube, maybe thats affecting the shuffle functionality... It repeats the same 10 songs over and over even in the same order. Its ridiculous XD
I'm considering to stop my premium membership. And switch to spotify...
