[All Platforms][Search] View/search song title in native languages, not only by translated titles

I appreciate Spotify's feature for song title translations from their native languages to the country's main language that users are residing in. However, could there be an option to search/view song titles in their native language?

 

When searching a particular song title obtained from other social platforms, e.g. searching AKMU's song 오랜 날 오랜 밤 on Spotify, it does not return useful results. However when the translated title (LAST GOODBYE) is searched, the actual song comes out. The same goes by for IU's 시간의 바깥, which can be searched by 'above the time'. (screenshot as below)

 

Can Spotify look into this feature by allowing users to view/search the song title in the native language that the music was released in? There seems to be quite a number of posts relating to this, just that they are not consolidated.

Thanks for clarifying this!

 

We've marked this as a new idea.

 

Please keep in mind that we upload track information as we receive it so if a song is uploaded in with its title translated in English, you can find it searching by its provided name.

Hey there @burntbiscuit,

 

Thank you for submitting this idea, we'll just need a bit more info from you to understand it first. In order to give it a proper status, is what you're suggesting similar to this idea that you shared?

 

Please note that it should be possible to search for tracks in a different language. For example, searching in the desktop app for 오랜 날 오랜 밤 brings back this song.

We'll be keeping an eye out for your reply, thanks!

Hi Katerina, thanks for your reply! Yes, its very similar. I understand that Spotify does not support Korean language in the desktop app yet, therefore I'm unable to test it out by switching languages.

 

Regarding the song you provided on your reply, I'm afraid that isn't the actual song by the artist, instead its an instrumental-accompaniment song. The real song 오랜 날 오랜 밤 (translated to Last Goodbye) by the artist can be found here

There are many songs by different artists on Spotify that I'm unable to search them in their original Korean song title, if you do require, I can provide you with more info.

 

Cheers!
