You know people use playlist to listen music at a particular order, what do you call the act of listening to music in a random order and letting the computer choose songs randomly?

For example:

Instead of making a playlist off the songs I like, I let it play itself randomly.

I am looking to replace the bolded part with a sort of idiom.


"Shuffle" is the term used.

Instead of making a playlist, I just leave it on shuffle.

You can also use "random" much as in your example

Instead of making a playlist, I let the songs play randomly.
