Search inside the playlist is gone

Hey I'm a premium user, I use Pixel 2 XL and right now the Search Bar when you swipe down on the top of the playlist is gone. I can't search for my songs inside the playlist now. That is on android. However I can search it from clicking the 3 dots on right top and click on ''find in playlist'' but I don't care about that. That is not convenient at all! Is this one of the Apple feature things? Like how am I unable to use such basic feature now? What is going on?

My Question or Issue

 A couple of weeks ago there was an update which removed the simple function to search in a playlist by swiping down and typing in the search bar. Now I have to press on the three dots to the right and find the search in playlist function among all the other lines of text. It takes a lot longer and is really annoying me because sometimes I misslick. Is there a way for me to simply search through my playlist again by swiping down?

Yeah, apparently they removed it across all platforms (Though my friends with Iphones still have it so maybe the person who told me that was mistaken). It is probably the worst design choice they have made yet. I am hoping they realize what a bad idea it was and bring it back. I'm also a premium user, have been for I think a couple years now, and it annoys me enough to where I will probably switch to another streaming service if it isn't brought back in a couple weeks.

It actually is still there, but buried in the overflow menu as 'find in playlist'. It's annoying, but at least they didn't delete it totally.

Yeah, I know but because of Spotify's animation it takes too long to open the settings scroll down and click to that. While it was just swipe down in the playlist, like why would you take something so convenient away?

Sorry, didn't read the post properly! In the past, they've taken the feature away totally a couple of times, so I was just relieved to find it still existed (they seem to have an irrational hatred of it). It definitely is annoying though.

Im having this issue too. I seriously hope this isnt a permanent change because this simple thing will literally drive me insane enough to migrate to a different music streaming service like YouTube music. Whoever thought this change was a good idea should be let go.
