It is happening to me too with the new update.
Spotify version: 18.104.22.1687
Phone: Android Galaxy S3 (SGH-T999)
Android version: 4.3
For those who are looking for a temporary fix while spotify irons out this bug, try pressing right above the "Browse" item in the main pullout menu. If you press in the right spot just above "Browse" and just below the Spotify bar, it will bring you to the search feature. This is because the "Search" menu item still exists, but it is hidden behind the top spotify bar. Only a couple pixels are selectable and no text shows whatsover for the search button.
Spotify is aware of this problem and they are investigating.
Hopefully it will be fixed soon! Thanks for your patience.
I'm on Android 4.3 mobile using Spotify version 22.214.171.1243. The Search option disappears from the main top left menu every time I use the app.
I have narrowed it down to happening right after expanding the mini-player from the bottom of the screen. I can open the app and use it normally, but once I click the new mini-player (the new version that allows swiping to change songs) to bring up the main player screen, Search will disappear from the top left menu, leaving just Browse/Activity/Radio/etc. I can bring back Search by closing the app and reopening it.
I have tried other 3.1 versions, including Betas, and this always happens.
Same problem here. Fix this! I am paying for your service and it is not fully usable at the moment.
If this is happening to you, could you let us know the following:
The more information we have, the better we can look into this.
Same here and same version of Android. Just disappeared this evening. Incredibly frustrating!!
Oh man... you Spotify devs are nailing it!! Way to go! I mean... how can anybody overlook this!!??? It seems you don't have any sort of quality control for your apps. Get your sh*t together Spotify or Apple will crush you.
Search function is missing on Android app.... yes.... UNBELIEVABLE.
