SPOTIFY is finally adding individual shuffle and play buttons across the app.
That means you can choose exactly how you want to play any album or playlist.
Spotify has faced lots of criticism over its default shuffle button in the past.
Brit music sensation Adele even asked Spotify to just feature a Play button with the release of her album 30.
She said: "This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!
"We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason.

Spotify ultimately added a combo button that offered both Play and Shuffle functionality.

And that includes listening to it as the creator intended, using the standard album or playlist order.
"Music – and how you listen to it – should be yours to control," Spotify explained in a blog post.
"So from the moment you hit play on Spotify, you decide the way you want to hear your favorite playlists or that new album you’re obsessed with.
"So to make that choice even clearer and simpler, we’re improving the listener experience and separating the Shuffle and Play Buttons for Spotify Premium users."
The new update is rolling out over the coming weeks.
That means you might not get it right away – so don't panic.
You'll be able to access it on both iOS and Android devices.
