    I did a forum search but didn't turn anything up, but what on earth do you say to Siri now to have her play all the music on your iPhone, but shuffled?

    I used to be able to "play all music shuffled" or "shuffle music" and that would happen, now she responds with "turning shuffle on", which not only doesn't start playback, but also remains wherever it was (either in an album, or playlist).

    I've tried different combinations of "play all of the music on my phone, shuffled" and "play all music", then separately "shuffle music".

    I've also tried telling it the specific playlist, which it has a hard time with because my playlist is called "iPhone", so saying "play the playlist called iPhone shuffled", and she doesn't seem to get that, or at best, only starts playing that playlist, but in order.

    "Play all of my music shuffled"

    Works for me.

    Update: "Shuffle my music" works for me....which seems like it wouldn't for you. Maybe try closing Apple Music, rebooting. Not sure why we'd get different results. What language are you using?

    "Play all of my music shuffled" works for me thankfully, it definitely used to work with just "play all my music shuffled".

    I'm using english, and I don't have an accent or anything, so it's definitely understanding me.

    The "shuffle my music" version, which I've not tested exhaustively, never seemed to get me outside of an album or whatever depth I happened to be at.

    Hmm. Play all my music shuffled worked on my iPhone... Siri is known to give you different results with the same question though.

    Looks like Siri's interpretations are changing to offer more control. I'm not sure they're doing a very good job though :).
