Can we have a way to preview music?

Say, a easy reachable switch to turn on preview-listening, which then plays each song from the queue in a defined range of seconds/minutes.

This example would play a song, starting from 30% of song-length and play 52% from that song, then skip to the next song.
% is a great feature, because if a song has a lenght of 4 minutes or 14 minutes, the preview would always play 52% of the songs, starting from 30% of the beginning. Otherwise (sec), the preview would play a fix amount of time (52 seconds), which is too short for a 30mins jazz song to prelisten.
