IOS Type Ahead Search Needed

Hello,

 

Every leading streaming services iOS application has Type Ahead Search except Spotify.  This is generally accepted web / app. search technology that you should be using in all your applications including your desktop client.

 

Spotify needs to embrace the concept of Customer Centricity!  

 

Thanks, Phil

I do believe this already exists in the desktop application, it will give you suggestions as you type.

Hi Peter,

 

You are correct re: the Desktop app.

 

I appreciate your help.  I really enjoy the Spotify service, and just trying to make it better and more user friendly.

 

Thanks, Phil

Also called 'suggested search', I agree this is needed badly on iOS. I recently had an urge to listen to an old "B52's" song. Searching for this on iOS is almost impossible, especially if you're in the car (which I know you're not really suppose to do in California) Here was the process for me: Search for: "B52" = no results "B52s" = no results "the b52s" = no results "the b52's" = no results I finally gave up with that and searched by song. Later when I got home, I tried again and found that if I added in a hyphen (B-52), the band would finally come up in the search results. Pretty frustrating.
