Search for Public Playlists that Contain Song/Artist

My theory (not rocket science):

 

If someone else's playlist includes a song or artists that I like, there is a good change that I will enjoy the rest of their playlist. 

 

Currently, you can only search for public playlists via playlist name.  Considering that most people do not name their playlists to accurately reflect the type of music it contains, I believe that the current search functionality is quite limited. 

 

Spotify should have functionality to search for public playlists that contain a song/artist.  I think would be immensly helpful for music discovery.  

 

Best of luck, 

Ryan

 

P.S. - Down the line, it would be interesting to see "similarity scores" between two playlists.  Could be quite interesting for finding new music.

Hey everyone, we've brought this idea to the teams behind 'Search' again. While we are definitely working on improving your search experience, this exact feature isn't in our current roadmap. Please continue to leave your comments here and I'll keep passing it on to the teams. Thanks!

I disagree with that MaxFrist.
This feature request is NOT to check whether a song has been stored in one
of our playlists.
It is to lookup playlists that contain a certain song, nothing else.
Don't make it more complex, otherwise Spotify has a reason more to postpone
it...

This feature request is NOT to check whether a song has been stored in one of your playlists.
It is to lookup playlists that contain a certain song, nothing else (It can be that your own playlists show up too, but it's not a must if there too many playlists containing it).

It's quite frustrating that it's been 5 years since this very valuable request was filed and still no plans to add it.  As others have suggested the initial proposal is very very simple.  An option on a track (similar to all the other ... options today) that finds playlists containing it, sorted by number of followers if possible.  This would open up a huge amount of music across the community that are alrady taking the time to create solid playlists.

 

Radio by the way could then do a better job of leveraging this feature as well!  Please do this!

Should be this hard to make a search function that gives you playlists based on multiple tracks????

This is a must have!!!  Really this would increase how frequently I use Spotify without a doubt because of the ability to collect great playlists that exist with songs that I like (in sure I'm. It the only one). I'm confused as to why this wouldn't be on the roadmap. Seems like common sense and would be a differentiator.

Google brought me here since I searched for what I for sure thought was a feature that already existed...since it apparently isn't the case this idea has my wote! Would be much appreciated.

 

Edit: On second thought, it might not work. Sure it'll find several playlists, but I guess it'll find to many, so how to choose wich one to show to the person searching, order by popularity, followers? My guess would be that those playlists are large and contain to many tracks. My point is it wouldn't be any good for finding related tracks. It would find playlists that contain +1000 tracks...

Another premium user here that would REALLY love this feature. I love finding new music and I use multiple sources- including Spotify's playlists that are tailored for the user- but it is so true that if you like a song on a playlist, there is a good chance, you will like others too. I just feel like I'm missing out and I don't see why this would be difficult to program...
