I have registered, chosen the free version, and am logged in, but cannot see a search bar anywhere. There is no Spotify icon on my desktop...how do I actually get started with searching for songs?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am totally confused. I went through the entire registration process and get a home page full of adverts and complex option... no simple search bar
THANK YOU! I also had to read the entire thread. I was using the search bar, rebooted and then LOST the search bar. I did not realize you *can't navigate to spotify using the web browswer* but have to use the application. what a supreme hassle.
And I think people were criticizing what seemed to be a spotify moderater, perhaps masquerading as a communty user. The least they could do would be to: make this stuff more obvious and user-friendly in the first place followed by having a paid modereator (which I suspect they do, and suspect this is the guy who kept answering.)
I'm like the rest of you. Where on earth is the search bar ?
I'm on the ACCOUNTS page and there is nowhere to go. The only choices are DOWNLOAD, which I did ages ago; HELP, which is no use whatsoever; and PREMIUM for FAMILY, which I don't want.
Even worse - In COMMUNITY, there seems to be a SOLUTION somewhere but I can't find that either.
Not only is the SPOTIFY app usless, but this support forum seems to be just as bad !
If it is any help when I open spotify now this is the page that opens.
We closed the web browser and then the search bar showed up on the app like usual.
What a supreme pain in the rear. Enough for me to firmly take Spotify premium off the table for consideration. This is a really terrible experience for your customers and potential premium customers.
