Feature request: shuffle in the lock screen

Post by JorenJoestar » Wed Sep 18, 2019 2:27 pm

Hello everyone!
First of all...thanks for the amazing software you created!
I am an old school mp3 user, and I stick to phones that have an sd-card so I can copy my collection there, and this software is THE BEST!

One thing I would love though is the add of the shuffle button also on the lock-screen.
I find jumping around and then really digging a song and willing to listen to the rest of the album.
In that case, having the possibility of disabling the shuffle will let me cycle through the song around the one triggered my interest.

Anyway, I know you are busy (I am a dev too!) but keep up the amazing work!
Only appreciation for you guys!

:D

A question would be whether Neutron would play the album the song currently playing is in if shuffling gets deactivated during play. Might depend on the track list that you are playing. Does this already work when you do it from the main playing screen ? What track list do you start with, all songs by an artist, and that in shuffle mode ? And when you deactivate shuffling Neutron switches to the album, and plays this ( other ) track list ?

Ok, tried it, seemed to work. Would probably depend on a suitable sort order.

Yes I have all the MP3 in shuffle, so this does not work for me :)

What I meant was : if we had the requested feature ( switch off shuffle from lockscreen ) it would only do what you expect it to do if switching off shuffle does this at all, and that depends on the sort order of the track list (without shuffle). If the track list is sorted by album and you switch off shuffle, then you can move through the tracks of the album by moving forwards or backwards. Otherwise not.
