[Desktop] Search for and Locate Music in Library

[Desktop] Search for and Locate Music in Library

We have the ability to search downloaded music, but I don't keep all of my playlists downloaded. I believe it would be helpful to search for music in my library, and further identify which folder/playlist(s) the song is in--similar to windows file manager telling you file locations. This would serve two primary purposes:

1. The narrowed search feature in itself will enable users to determine if they have already added a song to their library

2. The identification feature enables a level of organization that is otherwise incredibly difficult to achieve.


With over 700 playlists and intentionally minimal overlap between them, the ability to quickly search my music would be incredibly helpful

Hi there @Npoythress,

Thanks for the Idea submission.


You can already search for items located in your library on the Desktop app. 

  1. Click Your Library.
  2. Hit the Search icon in the upper right corned, next to the sorting options. You'll see that a search bar appears, which reads "Search in Playlists (or the current section you're in).
  3. You can search for your playlists there.

Hope this helps 🙂
