shuffle all vs shuffle categories? Are categories albums?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me the difference between:

Shuffle All

Shuffle Songs

Shuffle Categories

Shuffle Songs/categories?

Are categories basically albums?

Yes. Or whatever you choose as a way to see the songs in the library. Could also be folders, album artists, genres, composers, ....

Shuffle Categories 

Some users like to play all albums of an artist, but in random order, and the songs of each album as they are.

That works for artists. Whether it works for other categories, I don't know. It took some bug-reporting and feature-requesting to enable that much.

Play the category with the songs in random order.

What is the best way to shuffle all songs by an artist?

Let's say the artist has 10 albums and I want all those songs shuffled?

Go to the library view for that artist, tap on 'All Artist Songs', then tap on the Shuffle icon at the top of the resulting list.

If you miss out the 'All Artist Songs' step, then you'll still get the whole catalogue by that artist played, but grouped as shuffled album at time.
