How to turn shuffle play on and off on Tidal's website and mobile app

  • You can turn shuffle mode on or off on Tidal using the shuffle button in the player controls at the bottom of the screen.
  • The Tidal web page and mobile app features two shuffle controls. The larger one only shuffles the current album or playlist, but can't be used to turn off shuffle mode. 
  • On the mobile app, tap the minimized player controls at the bottom of the screen to make it larger, then you can find the shuffle control in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Tidal's shuffle controls may be initially confusing because the large, obvious shuffle button can only turn shuffle mode on, not off.
