[Android][Playlists] Bring Back Mobile Playlist Sorting/Searching

It would appear that the newest update to mobile versions of Spotify have moved the Search/Filter options for playlist into a small context menu which is a few clicks and a scroll away.

 

I don't see the need for this - I (and I'm sure many others) use the search funtion and the sort functions all the time on mobile devices. So the fact that they have been moved elsewhere is really inconvenient - there was no need to do this.

 

Do other people agree that the search and sort functions need to be moved back to the playlist main screen?

You still can do this. Go to your playlist -> Tap the three dots for -> scroll down -> "Sort playlist"

What's really dumb is that in your 'Songs' playlist, Discovery Weekly and your Release Radar, the search is still available if you just swipe down. Why take it away everywhere else?

There is no really reason for changing the search function to a 3-click-method. How do you think should we quickly search for a song in a paylist with thousands of titles???

To be clear, the search function still exists, it just takes more clicks
and swipes to get to now.

Yes, the function still does exist, only takes a few more clicks to find (in my opinion, such a simple playlist function shouldn't take that much effort though). But my main complain is the fact that they supposedly decided to make the overall UI more simple, yet they sacrificed legibility and accessibility for a text based list with no visual priority at all. Everything is now cluttered under the three dots menu and is a pain to just look at.

THANK YOU! Good to know I'm not the only one who that new feature is pissing off. It's completely inconvenient and unnecessary.

In the PC app, the search used to be on the top line, to the right of the forward and back buttons. Now this space is empty. I don't care if search is in the 3-dot menu or below it or not. I just want it back on the top line where it has been conveniently located all along. Removing it is a pointless and annoying change. wth?

I feel like I've been waiting a year for this why would they remove such a basic feature

What's was the point of this? To lessen the searches done presumably - To what? Save on processing?
