foobar200 Mobile Android Genre Shuffle?

[Duplication of post in here:

I put it in here too, so that its more relevant for mobile.]

Hello!

I just tried the foobar2000 mobile.
I would like to ask or else suggest a future feature.
In the main window, when I click on genre, then I cannot shuffle for a specific genre.
That is, it just goes under genre, then I have to select some artist, and only then can I click shuffle.
Is it possible to shuffle on a particular genre.
So that in the end, I can listen randomly, to all artists that belong to a specific genre.
In general, it would be nice, if I could shuffle on other categories as well.

Yes please, I would really like this missing feature as well. Like other categories, all tracks and shuffle by album under the main Genre heading would be very much appreciated!

This is so incredibly needed. I can't even manage to get my Foobar2000 mobile on Android to reflect my perfectly-tagged metadata with any accuracy, which is all sourced/stored in my Foobar2000 (PC). Making playlists is a NIGHTMARE. At this point I'm trying to find a lightweight client that isn't Foobar that works.

Click on Genre
then click on the specific Genre for more then 1 second.
Choose "Create A New Playlist"
Play the new playlist in Shuffle.
Warning: fb2k is addictive.
