    I have about 3500 songs loaded on my phone. I think its a good amount but not really crazy, I'm sure many people have a lot more.

    I've always usually just gone into my song list and put it on shuffle when I listen to music.

    On my 920, when I go into songs and choose a song to start playing, the phone isn't responsive at all for like 20 seconds or so. The music continues to play but I can't skip to the next track or do anything.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? It happens on both 920's I have. Is it just the amount of songs I have? My iPhone 3gs never did this.

    i have about 300 songs on my phone. dont have a pausing issue when using shuffle. 3500 is an awfully lot. if you notice at the bottom of the music app it tells you what song is going to come next. maybe with that many songs and shuffle on the phone has to parse that many tracks to build it's shuffle list. which could take about 20secs.

    Any GDR2 users here that can check whether this is still a problem? And is it only a Lumia 920 issue, or do other WP8 phones have this as well?

    This has recently become extra annoying since my new car starts 'shuffle all' automatically, meaning that after getting in the car I can't use my phone for like 20-30 seconds e.g. to start Nokia Drive..

    I too experience this. I did a hard reset and had a fresh install of GDR2 and it still does this. If there is one thing I'd like MS to fix it would be this, and adding Gapless playback.

    Thanks. Too bad they didn't fix it. Maybe in GDR3, which I'm sure ATT users will get somewhere around Fall 2014... By the way, after posting here I found this related thread on answers.microsoft.com. If you have a MS/hotmail/live/outlook account, please hit the 'me too' button on that page.

    Well, after destroying my 920 I now have a 1020 to test this, and unfortunately it's exactly the same. Well that, and this device seems to get even hotter, go figure.

    This guy again.. Does GDR3 solve the 'freeze on shuffle' issue for devices with more than 2000 songs?

    I don't have a lot of music, but a lot of people have been claiming xbox music is a lot smoother and faster post-GDR3. Give it a shot, maybe it'll fix that bug. That does sound really annoying though :/

    OK, just installed it on my 1020. Unfortunately it still freezes for 20s. Rotation lock and closing apps is pretty sweet though.

    Great news: It seems like this is finally fixed in Xbox music on wp8.1. Once you're past the embarrassingly slow library update (10 songs per second, really?) it actually works.
