Hi, is the shuffle button in Apple TV 4 (latest update) missing or am I doing somethung wrong? Can't shuffle anything from Apple Music, can't find the button or any other possible way of how to shuffle...

Looks like Apple Music content created by Apple is not meant for shuffling.
You can shuffle all your own music, that you have under both Music > Library and Computers > Your Library > My Music

I would understand that, however, I can't even shuffle any album from Apple Music. In previous version, I was able to shuffle everything.
Yep. I can't find any way to do that either. On the positive side, now we can have lyrics on the big screen ;)

EDIT: Just discovered it! You indeed can shuffle Apple Music albums and playlists! In fact, you can also set them to repeat all or one.
The trick is, you need to use the aTV remote app for that, 'cause in tvOS 10 UI there is no control to achieve the same.

That's great idea! I have to try it when I get home. Thanks:)

I believe if you press and hold using the remote on a song in the playlist or album you want to play there is a bunch of options including shuffle.
