My Question or Issue

Until yesterday there was an always visible search bar at the top of the Spotify windows, next to the forward- and backward buttons. This morning it was gone. 

The only way os searching seems to be I have to go to the left and press search, wait 2-3s before the whole window is covered with a fresh search window and than search I can perform a search, if my search wasnt what I was looking for I have to repeat the steps and start over which takes long time and to many mouse clicks.

This is most annoying.
How do I get the always visible search bar back?

Hi @motoxpunk, thanks for writing!


At Spotify they’re often testing and launching improvements and new features. During those tests you may see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or get a new feature for only a temporary period.


Meanwhile, here's this idea that you can add your vote and feedback to.


Also, make sure you don't miss a thing by enabling automatic updates on your device.


Let me know if you have any other questions!
