Hey Deezer, how do I set the Android app so that it doesn't default to shuffle tracks when I start a playlist?
When I create a playlist, I do so in the order in which I want to hear the songs, it seems that the app starts a new paylist in shuffle tracks mode, an I would like the mode to be play in order.

Hi @Adrian.Fox-Kirk I am sorry this was not clear. If you tap on the blue button the list will shuffle, if you want to listen in order you have to start with the first song. Unfortunately this cannot be changed.

Hi @Adrian.Fox-Kirk, "untap" the shuffle icon:

Read the question, I know I can untap the icon, the question is how to stop the app defaulting to shuffle so I don't have to keep uptapping the icon.

The app does not default shuffle unless you start the album/playlist by pressing the big blue play button.

Yes, so the button to play the playlist starts it in shuffle mode. I already know this. So, what you are saying is that the default behavior of starting a playlist with the play button is in shuffle mode.

So, again, I ask my question. Can this be changed? A simple yes or no will suffice, if not, can I suggest an option in settings to allow me to turn off this default behavior?

Hi there, as Flo mentioned above, this is not a default feature, So, there is no or yes answer for this. Could you please send us an image of what is happening? Also, please clear the cache and let us know if it helps! Go to the app > settings > app > clear cache.

Any new playlist that I choose to listen to will be in shuffle mode when I press play (the blue button as mentioned by Flo), this does not happen when i select the first track of the playlist.

As I expect to use the play button to play the playlist, and as it always starts in shuffle mode, I would consider this to be the default setting for the play button.

If you are saying that pressing the blue play button should not start in shuffle mode, then would a reinstall fix?

Cache clearing has had no effect to the app behaviour.

Not much to see, shuffle is on every time I play a playlist even after un checking shuffle. I have Deezer HIFI subscription, and I have seen that shuffle is default for free users, but shouldn't be default for premium. Is the HIFI subscription maybe not being seen as equivalent to premium?

I have uninstalled the app, software updated my phone, all other applications are updated and I will have to re-download my playlists.

What else can I do?

By the way, same behaviour on my Samsung galaxy s2 tablet, so not device specific.

Thanks Flo, that's what I guessed.
