Learn below how to shuffle your songs when using the YouTube Music app!

To shuffle songs in a playlist, album or from an artist page
  • Click on an album, playlist, or artist page (for an artist) you want to enjoy.
  • Click Shuffle  under the album art.
To shuffle a playlist or album while listening
  • While listening to a song on your album or playlist, tap the  icon at the bottom of the player screen. This will expand this section and allow you to see which songs or videos will be playing next.
  • You can shuffle the order in which songs in a playlist or album play by clicking on the crisscrossed arrows.

How do I shuffle offline playlists? The big white play button just plays from the first track.
Also., Hitting the big white play button on my offline mix tape just plays the songs in order and doesn't shuffle them

Hey Sam,
Thanks for calling that out! We will update this thread. 
If you're using mobile, you should be able to swipe up to see your queue after you start playing a song. There is a shuffle button (two arrows crossed) at the top of the queue. 
Hope that helps!

I think it would be good if that was moved so I can shuffle play from the start.

Hi, is there a way to shuffle all artists or just have a radio station that takes into account all artists I like and:or follow ? I just want a big huge shuffle of everything please ! Thanks

@Chadical Chad Swipe up the current player in the app and tap the two arrows point at each other twice. When that button has a 1 inside, only the current song will be repeated.
@Mauricio Garcia Lazard, does Your Mixtape work for you? That should a a mix of everything you like, follow and/or listened to.

@Felix Beuster Thanks for the info. Is the mix you talk about the one that I can find in my favorites section ? It works not so well as I have a lot of repeated artists. Not sure that it’s taking my history and the artists I follow into account. Thanks again...

I wanted to shuffle all the albuns on my library, as I would do in Google Play Music, will this feature be available in the future?

Thought I was losing my mind.  Spent way too long trying to shuffle a playlist through the iOS app with no success.  Turns out, as others have indicated, shuffle does not work while casting.  You have to stop casting, shuffle your playlist into a queue, then start casting.  Seems like a basic function.  If not achievable, maybe show a brief message that “shuffle is disabled” while casting?

Regarding the shuffle algorithm, probably can’t make everyone happy.  I do find myself shuffling multiple times before settling, so maybe there is some room for improvement.
