New Feature To Try On Desktop: Quick Search Shortcuts

New Feature To Try On Desktop: Quick Search Shortcuts

Hey folks,

 

The Spotify team is always working to make the software as simple as possible for everyone to use, and for those of you who like to save a bit of time by using keyboard shortcuts, there's a very convenient trick that you may not have noticed on the desktop.

 

Try typing [CTRL]+[K] (on Windows) or [Cmd]+[K] (on Mac), and this will open up a quick search box overlay where you can immediately start typing what you’re looking for and receive suggested results instead of having to open up the full search page first. Hopefully, this is something a lot of you find useful that will get you to the music you love even faster!

Bonus tip: These same shortcuts should also work for you if you’re using the web player.

 

Give it a try, and let us know what you think in the comments!

This feature is really very useful. finally, I can enjoy music hub now.

What is the point since there is already a "search" menu?

Hi, well I've tried using the shortcuts as shown on the picture above. I'm using a MacBook Pro and use Safari as my browser. For Command+R (for repeat) it reloads the site when clicked. Is there any suggestions how to fix it, or possibly change it?

 

Hey @Creative_Boxx 

 

The shortcuts were mainly made for the desktop app that you can download and use on your computer.

 

While most of the shortcuts should work when using the Web Player website, some of the shortcuts might not work correctly if the browser also assigns the same shortcut to a browser action such as refresh page. Right now there isn't a way to change the Spotify keyboard shortcuts.
