Yeah.

 

But this thread isn't monitored. The other one is.

They patched this, for whatever stupid **bleep**ing reason. Now there's no way to sort your search results

I do believe I know why they did this: pure greed.

Not only do they no longer allow search result list sorting, but they don't return anywhere near all appropriate search results.  And I believe sincerely that they do this to lower the load on their computers.  When I've asked them to confirm or deny this, all I hear is crickets.

That, and if they make it harder for you to find what you are looking for, the less likely you are to listen to it, so they don't have to pay the streaming royalty. Just my opinion.

It appears that as of the latest update I got yesterday, the "spotify:search:" work-around no longer works. How frustrating! Why are more features being disabled?

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.
