Bring Back Sorting Functionality in Search Results!

Spotify used to allow users to sort search results by clicking on the column headers (Artist, Title, Popularity, etc.), easily allowing one to find the desired song based on those simple criteria.

 

Previous "updates" to Spotify hid this functionality, forcing users to type "spotify:search:" before their search terms to enable sorting.

 

The latest version of Spotify has removed this functionality entirely, making the program completely unusable for me.  I had to download the prior version from December 2014 because the new version released in March 2015 is effectively broken.

 

Please include the ability to natively sort all search results in the next Spotify release!

Why do you keep removing useful functionality from Spotify?  Searching within a playlist, sorting by the column headers, seeing all the tracks for multiple playlists through folders, seeing my local files - I agree this update is a step back and makes Spotify much less useful.

Good news!

 

You can now sort the column headers in the search results again! If you don't have it yet, you will soon as it rolls out.
