Search for all albums?


Search for all albums?




I'm new to Spotify (from Tidal). Is there a way to search for all albums under a specific genre (like Hip-hop)? 


I like to find new music/artists by locating albums. It would be nice to see the entire Spotify collection of albums, newest to oldest, although I'm sure it's alot. It appears the New Release section is my only option, which isn't ideal as it cuts your choices off after a certain date and also mixes in albums with singles.

Hey there @co_jo07

and welcome to the community !


There isn't a way to search all albums under a certain genre but there are suggested playlists under certain genres and moods. ("Browse" feature of the app)

In addition, Spotify provide 3 amazing features under the "Made For You" tab:

- Daily Mix

- Discover Weekly : weekly mixtape of fresh music

- Release Radar


I suggest checking them out as first steps on getting to know Spotify better.


Hope this sheds some light.

Enjoy Spotify!

If you are using the smartphone version of the app as well as the desktop version, you can hit the ''Home'' tab and you will see a carousel with a variety of music options to choose from and these wil be updated as your spotify usage increases.
