Streaming services have transformed the way we consume entertainment. With a plethora of shows and movies at our fingertips, streaming services continuously evolve to improve the user experience.

HBO Max, one of the leading contenders in the streaming arena, has recently undergone a significant change where they have rebranded themself to ‘MAX’.

Things have been far from plain sailing as users have encountered a few issues like ‘Not available in your region’ error and borked Dolby Vision and 4K HDR on Apple TV .

Adding to the list, some Max users are complaining about an issue where the ‘shuffle button’ is missing or has been removed (1,2,3,4,5).

The shuffle button has become a highly valued option for streaming platforms. It allows users to enjoy a randomized selection of content, providing an element of surprise and serendipity to their viewing experience.

For non-episodic shows or those without a strict sequential narrative, such as sketch comedies like ‘South Park’ or anthology series, the shuffle button serves as a valuable tool.

It enables viewers to enjoy episodes in a non-linear fashion, enhancing the overall entertainment value.

However, the removal of this feature has led to an outcry of disappointment and frustration among dedicated MAX subscribers.

@StreamOnMax u got till sunday to put the shuffle button back i’m not even playing w y’all fr

@StreamOnMax @netflix @paramountplus and any other streaming service add a shuffle button to shows you plebs I know some have it but they all need it I’m tired of struggling to pick an episode of a show with 8 seasons I’ve already seen 20 thousand times it will help world peace

The shuffle button also played a significant role for users who wanted to rewatch their favorite shows without feeling bound by chronology.

Its absence restricts viewers to either watching episodes in a linear order or manually selecting episodes, which can be time-consuming and inconvenient.
