I used to be able to tap the mic icon on my keyboard to voice search on my Galaxy s9 phone. However, the mic icon has been replaced with a camera on the app and grayed out on the keyboard. I think this is a very dangerous feature for Spotify to remove just by experimenting with available features to add and remove, considering people search while driving. This change has made searching much more involved and will distract drivers even more, increasing the chances of automobile accidents. If you're reading this, please vote and share with others who would agree with bring this feature back.
PS: I am aware of the “Song Search” feature in the app, but that only searches for individual songs. This is a different option I'm posting about.
