[Mobile] Search Bar Always Visible

So I thought that this can solve a lot of unnecessary clicks. Everytime I'm on an album or a song, I  have to:


1. Open the menu

2. Click the search button

3. Type in my query


Instead of just:


1. Type in my query


I think it's pretty much a no brainer. Please upvote to have less friction and faster search results.


I've made a mockup for preview. The search bar is a great solution, I hope I see it on the Android app soon.

Hi @RWH, I've merged your idea with this older one, in order to combine the kudos. That way, the feedback can be passed along to developers quicker. :)


Great. Created these two visuals yesterday to show how easily a search icon could fit into all browsing options…



Can't believe it hasn't yet been implemented! It is a needed idea! 

Maybe, instead of the icon, it could be a swipe (currently I think it how it is on android, to get the main menu, but on iPhone it gets to the last page opened), maybe a swipe from above...

This is a great idea. Most people "save" songs. Those songs go into your song "playlist." When I scroll through my songs, I have to go to the top of the list just to search. Which is a pain and makes me aggravated lol. I have to press the top of the screen. Pull down then enter what I'm looking for.
Please add a search bar, that stays at the top even while scrolling down. And on every screen.

Also a button right next to the search bar that will locate the song playing in the playlist your currently in. Sometime I hear a song and I want to find that song in the playlist and move it to the top. Having a shortcut would be nice way to find that song and bring it to the top. Just a thought! Make it happen! Kudos me! Search bar on every screen!
This is my first time on the Spotify community forums, came here to suggest this exactly! When u get a song name u wanna search there's too many steps! Atleast a persistent search button on all screens, but the bar is even better!!

Introduzir a lupa de busca em toda a navegação do aplicativo. Por favor.
