Spotify for Mac: Search stops working ~10 mins into session

Spotify for Mac: Search stops working ~10 mins into session



MacBook Pro 2019

Big Sur 11.6.1


Spotify works ok when I first launch it - I can use the search bar to find artists / playlists / podcasts etc. About 10 mins in, search stops working entirely. Every search is met with a 'couldn't find that' (screenshot below).


I end up having to use my phone to add stuff to queue. Super annoying, very distracting!

Hey @date_namrata,


Thanks for posting here 🙂

Could you give these steps a go and run a clean reinstall? This one is more through than the usual one. 


In case you've already tried these steps or some additional troubleshooting steps, please let us know. That way we'll able to avoid any repeating steps.


Could you also share with us if this occurred after, for example, an update?


Keep us posted.
