Shuffle Mode - per device or server?

Post by Simebaby » Sun Jan 13, 2019 2:32 pm

Hi All
When setting shuffle mode to on, should this only effect the device that set the shuffle, or does it apply to all devices connected to the server?
I.e. I have three echos, in different locations but attached to the same Amazon account - if I set shuffle mode 'on' on one of them, the other two also seem to go into shuffle mode - is this expected behaviour? And if so, is there a way to set shuffle mode per device? Don't mind attaching the echos to different Amazon accounts as I've paid for the family edition of MyMedia.
Cheers
Si

PS: An indication of whether shuffle mode is on or off would be nice on the console page.

Currently shuffle and loop mode are set on a per Amazon account basis.

So yes, using family sharing would get over this.

We're also in the process of expanding the intents to allow you to say "Shuffle tracks by xxxx" vs "Play tracks by xxxx" to differentiate shuffle vs non shuffle mode.

Yes we will add.

thanks
