[All Platforms][Playlists] Search among my playlists on "add to Playlist"

When I click on "add to Playlist" I can see "New Playlist" and a list with all my playlists. It would be very useful if I could search among my playlists titles by taping its name. I have a lot of playlists and sometimes it's hard to find the one I want to add the song to.

Hi everyone,


Even though this idea was previously closed, we're happy to announce that your feedback has helped us improve the app and this suggestion has now been implemented.


You will find a search bar in the "Add to playlist" section of the right-click context menu on desktop and on top of the lists you get on mobile.


Thank you for participating in our ideas exchange here on the Community and playing a big role in making Spotify better for everyone!

Status changed to: Case Closed

Updated on 2022-03-09

We've been keeping an eye on this submission for an extended period of time, and it doesn't seem this will reach the votes necessary to put it forward for prioritization.
As such, we're marking this case as closed. This includes any similar suggestions that are received.

If we do have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status. Have in mind that the idea will continue open for getting votes, so if you still feel strongly about it, continue sharing it with more users.

More information about it can be found here.

Thanks for your comprehension!


ok well i will probably move to another platform because your politic is really weird, it looks like you don't really care about users suggestions. This community platform is (and this has already been said many times) very little frequented and inaccessible for most users so it is almost impossible to get enough vote in the given time. The system doesn't work.  This community platform supposed to allow your users to submit their ideas turns out to be a huge source of frustration for most of the proposals made. This is a shame. Also, for the addition of the functionality in question in this post, it is only a functionality that was present before and was removed without explanation. So it should be possible to add it again... right? Unless it requires some advanced technological work beyond Spotify's reach.... Seriously, satisfying your users who use this platform is really in your best interest. Thanks 

100% agree with Kitsunezuko!

@spotify if you keep moving this onto a dead post that has a description not relevant to what the problem actually is, it will keep getting closed. On top of that, when mine was moved here it was already closed and I couldn't make an additional vote.


Let's get some things straight

1. This is not a new feature. You removed a feature that was already in the web app. I've filed a bug report as well.

2. Removing a feature that is heavily used in an application is a very bad thing to do - never do it.

3. Many people have tried submitting this just for web, and are very upset with how you've handled things. You keep indicating it's "all platforms" when it's not. Either you don't know your own platforms or you just don't care.

4. Trying to contact any of the people that move the posts is useless. They don't respond. They have the power to arbitrarily migrate your post here even if this description is not accurate of the bug, not feature request.

5. Do you even care about your users? Probably not


Not only that... this feature is INSANELY easy to build, regardless of your tech stack. If you would like, I will build it for free for Spotify. Feel free to reach out and DM if you care, I'm a software engineer in San Francisco.


Overall, I can't believe you've dragged this on this long. I guess I'll file another bug report for now, but who knows what you'll do.


I agree 100% with Blainemuri. I have contacted the moderators many times who are in charge of sorting the proposals. No response.
I should add that I have several hundred playlists classified in more than a hundred folders and that it takes me an average of 2 minutes to find the playlist I'm looking for when I add a song. It's really the worst possible experience. Please do something.
I didn't even use the arguments "we pay so your service should be correct" or "there's competition, you'll lose customers" 😉


It's sooooo annoying


Why is there a cap on songs for the release radar? I follow 1000+ artists and every week the release radar gets updated to 200 songs (some even repeated). Spotify should just show me the ones I haven't listened to and the ones that are new no matter how many. It's a release radar to discover songs from the artists that I follow not to re-listen to songs that I already added on my playlists. Spotify should directly have personal playlists with the releases of artists followed. Equally I used to add songs on playlists in the computer by typing to search for the playlist I wanted to add in but now I type and nothing happens... adding songs on the phone is so annoying for me and I find it stupid that the phone has a search bar to add into playlists whilst the computer does not. (yes both my Iphone  and my MacBook Pro are up to date on software).


It seems very apparent to me that Spotify has a new game plan. They are no longer interested in catering to the experience of the readymade user anymore who can help develop the platform to a place where a paying user can listen to any kind of music they want to, rather than the ‘very best’ of music, determined by simulated intelligence and assumed authorities. i dont think most people only want to hear the best of music. it homogenizes our individual tastes rather than allowing them to develop fluidly and naturally. thats what i loved about using Spotify, my music tastes expanded so widely and fluidly that i felt i finally had some substantial sense of identity and richness of experience through listening to music. not to mention how much it expanded my worldview,, but maybe i was duped,,


thier floppy disinterest in this very basic yet integral feature by shutting down and side stepping complaints shows me a single mindedness directed to remove the users autonomy in listening to their music. 


intentionally removing this feature reveals Spotifys strategy to move the whole platform to another ‘LIKE’ engine, pooling everyones experience into an echo chamber of top100 songs that ‘we’ made happen because it was the only option provided. 

i used to appreciate Spotify for being something of a peoples music pform. 


but as we simple common humans keep being shown time and time again, no matter how generous and ‘democratic’ (talking to u socialist swedes!) a commodities provider begins doing their business, eventually the temptation to be greater never fails to entice after a taste of money (much more bitter than wine btw). the thinness of the line between democracy and dictatorship shows itself again, but only if we’re looking. 


spotify was cool, but its becoming another expensive tool for the rich tools in charge to F* with the people. we’re quickly moving back to corporate broadcast radio and billboard top 100. how else are the grammys going to survive? are we really so surprised tho? money always comes out on top. 


ill prob keep using spotify way past reason (hey netflix) and they know that, which is why they wont directly address our concern about adding to OUR OWN playlists. until the next white buffalo comes along bumping ‘straight to **bleep**’ ill be around, taking my music rectally,,


mods might delete this post for being ‘irrelevent’, whatev, absurdity reigns, we took screenshots,,


btw, they censored my use above of the word ‘ h e l l ‘ in the song title of that classic jam abt imperialism 🤦 


please do something, our experience with spotify on desktop is really bad. Removing this feature makes using spotify on desktop completely impossible. You're forcing the hand of many of us when it would be much easier to get this feature working again. Moreover, you know that satisfied users do not hesitate to recommend your product, on the contrary, feeding a strong frustration among your users will only lead to a drop in the number of subscriptions and a very visible dissatisfaction online and harmful for your company. Thank you for reconsidering your position on this feature, which I am sure will delight many of your users. Thank you.
(I say thank you, but I don't even know if this message will be read by your moderators. Since I have been in contact with several of them for several months and, despite their activity on this platform, they don't respond to my messages...)
