used spotify for a while and one thing that is annoying is that its like 3 steps to search for a song/artist, which more or less is the base principle for you application introduce a short hand to get to the search quick.
i know you need test new things, but have a fallback search or something with a short hand keybinding or do some what of a/b testing, in my opinion you have lost alot of easy of use.
is it only for beta testers that you have removed search box for every page except search?
