My Question or Issue

Hello, I have the problem that my search function does not work when Spotify is offline. I have previously downloaded several playlists, but nothing is displayed when I enter something in the search. I have tested the problem on 3 different PCs, but everywhere the same. I have also tried a clean install on all 3.

Hey @Basso1


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


We can confirm that it's not possible to search for downloaded content through the Search section on the desktop app while in Offline mode. However, you can search for a song you've previously downloaded within the playlist by clicking on the playlist > clicking on the magnifying glass icon > entering the song's title. Or if you prefer, you can use Ctrl + F and enter the song's title there.
