My Question or Issue

 Hi there,

So I noticed that Spotify on my Samsung Galaxy J3 updated yesterday. Today I went to look up a song in my personal playlist so I didn't have to scroll all the way through to find it. The search bar is usually above the playlist icon at the top of the playlist (as in the picture I have posted). This was a really useful feature that I used a lot, especially when I looked up local files that I put in my playlist. When I went to the top of my playlist page today, the search bar wasn't there anymore. I was really disappointed to see that this was gone, and it took me a couple minutes to find the song I wanted. I was wondering if there was still a way to search a playlist for a song on mobile. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Filtering and sorting playlists was changed. You can find the options under the three dot menu.

Yes, I've noticed this as well. If it's not a mistake, it's a stupid move. Depending on how big a playlist is, your not going to remember what place a track is and will take far too long to find.

Same for galaxy s9. Totally stupid move tho I'm hopeful that it happened by mistake since it still works on IOS.

Yeah this is a problem with mine to. Not a good UI choice at all. They keep trying to change the filter and sorting functionality with playlists and keep messing it up. They really just need to go back to how it was a year ago.

If this change isn't reverted I might have to look for other music services. I have playlists over 1000 songs long. Having these extra steps to search is a HUGE inconvenience.
