On the bottom right (in the web version), next to the volume slider you have options for shuffling.

Hope this helps!

Hey there,

Just wanted to circle back here! We just provided an update regarding some of the feedback requests we expect to land in the next few months.

The Mixtape is NOT a solution for shuffling my library. It's selecting artists that are not even in my Albums and Artist libraries. According to a previous comment, the Mixtape is selecting music from the history. I don't want this.

1. I would like a way to shuffle ONLY the albums that are in my library. A "Shuffle All" button in the Library/Albums section would be perfect. Use case: I might like some artists but not some of their albums (live albums for example).
2. I would a way to shuffle ONLY the artists that are in my library (all their albums). A "Shuffle All" button in the Library/Artists section would be perfect. Use case: I want to listen to all the albums of all the artists in my library.

I absolutely second this. This is the one feature lacking in all the music players I know of. When I like an artist I want to listen to all the tracks they ever released, and currently having to add every album to my library is extremely cumbersome. I would pay extra for a service that let me shuffle a set of artists.

I absolutely agree. Maybe youtube could add this to their "Premium" feature plan. As a developer, I know that his isn't too hard to implement. A simple DB lookup by artist is all it takes. Maybe, they could add a feature, where you could shuffle songs by Artist, Album, Genre, Year. It's all possible with just tweaking the SQL to do the lookups and the corresponding API to send through the relevant options:

POST /songs?page=x&pagesize=x
     "field": GENRE|YEAR|ALBUM|ARTIST,....
     "fieldValue": STRING,
     "shuffled": BOOL,

return Page<String>

There ya go, you have your API endpoint! That'll be $100 please lol.

Shuffle play should be added as an option for all Library sections---Downloads, Playlists, Albums, Songs, and Artists.

Would also like to see option to "Add all albums to Library?" when subscribing to an artist.
