Phone asked me to update so I did to version 188.8.131.527 and since that the search function has gone so cant search for the music I want to download. Can someone help? Read the trouble shooting about uninstalling but wont I lose all the music I have downloaded? Samsung galaxy iii mini SD card-0.97GB
My android phone (Samsung S3) has lost the search bar! I've tried to uninstall/reinstall the spotify app but the search bar still goes missing. I turn off my phone and turn it back on and I get the search bar back (and logging off and back on again also gets my search bar back)...but only until I play one of my tracks..press on the track..then press the little arrow down symbol in the top left corner...then as I go back a page the search bar has disappeared! Pressing on the top left '3 lines' symbol only gives me choices of Browse at the top and 'your music' etc. In other words, this menu no longer has the search option after I've pressed on the little down arrow in the top left corner within an individual track. What's going on? I could search a few days ago. I can't be expected to log off/log in every time I want to search for something??? Please respond asap with a fix. I'm going on holiday soon...and would like to use it! Thank you for your help..
For the love of God respond to this Spotify! What the hell is this? Can't search for music on MUSIC PLAYER. And I pay money for this. You. There is no customer support number, so the only way to resolve this is on this forum. I post and don't even get a solution. Absolutely ridiculous. Cancelling my account ASAP unless you fix this problem so I can listen to what I want. I've been a customer for years
Hello adam, this is a common issue that's been reported on the forums the last few days. I went ahead and passed this thread along to Spotify, and hopefully they'll have an answer for you all soon. I would suggest keeping an eye on that thread and seeing if any solutions get posted there. Cheers!
Search wont appear looked for an hour... no human help... lost songs and playlists and other stuff before... these bugs annoy the hell put of me... they charge more than netflix and its a worse experience... put me in a well bad mood
Wont be joining spotify after trial your not worth £10 a month yet sorry
There are several threads here about this. If the last person actually knows how to get Spotify to act instead of having us all tell each other how we're screwed, which it seems is what this forum is for, more power to them.
Someone in another thread says tapping above "browse" brings search back. Doesn't work on my Alcatel tablet.
Whst does work, but only for artists, not songs (haven't yet tried it for album titles) is www.listenspotify.com, which will respond to an artist put in its search box with a list of albums. Select one & it will be brought into actual Spotify.
I'm fairly new to Spotify and this started happening almost straight away. Pathetic. And I'm cynical enough to think that it may be their way of pushing you to "browse" new music and artists. Follow the money. They either fix this soon or I'm outta here.
I don't imagine its intentional. The person on the other thread says they just need to move "search" 40 pixels (or whatever) down in their new format to make it visible on Androids. Its just incredibly sloppy programming not to test on all major platforms before you foist it on them.
And callous not to have fixed it already. I'm not going to de-install & re-install every day in hopes of a magic fix. It could make it even worse. If somebody else wants to test this, please tell us.î
I uninstalled and reinstalled and as soon as I have a single item under recent music the search bar is gone. The only fix is to delete all my data and again it only fixes it until after I play a single song..
I paid for three months of Spotify Premium, I still have a month and a half left before it expires. I used to be able to search new music in the app, but now the search bar is non-existant. It's nowhere to be found. What's going on? My app is up to date by the way, and yes I do have an internet connection. The search bar is just nowhere to be found.
