Spotify has announced a major change is coming to the platform, but only for certain users.

This involves a new feature that lets listeners decide how they want to listen to their favourite playlists.

Spotify shared that they are improving the listening experience by separating the Shuffle and Play Buttons but there’s a catch.

This is because the new feature will only be made available for Spotify Premium users, meaning you’ll need to be paying customer.

Previously there was a combine button that for that playlist would automatically shuffle and for albums to play in chronological order.

But for those that are eligible for the update will be able to decide what mode they prefer at the top of all playlists and albums, letting them listen to the way want.

Spotify shared the news on their blog saying: “Whether you love the joy of the unexpected with Shuffle mode, or prefer listening to tunes in order by simply pressing Play, Spotify has you covered.”

The update will be on iOS and Android mobile devices but only for Spotify Premium users worldwide, with the rollout expected in the coming weeks.
