[Android][Search] Bring back Double-Tap Search

Bring back the Double-Tap search feature on Android. 

The Spotify Voice interface is neat and handy but I would still love to see the double tap search feature, especially when I dont want to speak out loud. It really helped when using one hand on the device (like most people do) and not have to reach to the search bar at the very top of the screen in order to search. 

 

Implementing both Voice and double tap will allow users to have the perfect range of utilization.  

 

Thanks!

Hey folks, 

 

Thanks for voting on this idea.

 

On mobile (Android & iOS), you can now bring up your keyboard by tapping the search icon a second time. This will make the keyboard pop up so you can start searching right away.

 

Thanks!

This seems to be a bug which spotify devs has identified. Add your device info here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Android/double-tap-on-the-search-button-doesn-t-work-from-other-men...

Interesting that it's marked as a "new idea" when it's bringing an old feature back. Looks more like a bug for the users who had relied on this affordance especially as phones get taller. What's the rationale for removing this feature?

 

Keeping gestures like these not only is a usability win (tapping the search bar at the top is a chore) but also delights users when these 'easter eggs' are found. Please re-think this Spotify.
