[Your Library] Search within all Playlists

Status: Not Right Now

Often, I'd like to find a song within one of my saved playlists.  I have a few playlists with over a thousand songs and this becomes difficult.  If I really want to listen to a certain song, I end up doing a general search, but then I have to go back to my playlist to continue listening there.  I'd like to be able to search within a playlist and then continue listening from that playlist.

spotify please add this, its been years


Hello, it seems there was a possibility to search for a song in all playlists of my account.

But this feature is no longer available. 
I would like to have this feature again. 

This a basic feature which Spotify have missed as usual, like the missing number of songs of playlist in a mobile app, missed in a delusional way. I think the UX/UI department of Spotify stopped functioning a few years ago.


The fact that this feature has yet to be added, even though its been requested since 2012, shows spotify doesn't listen to its user base. Being able to search through all your playlists to find a specific song seems like a basic ask. This is the reason I'm canceling my account and going to Amazon's music platform. 


Bad on Spotify.


just have to mention here. I own a software development company. We design commercial software, and then people buy it from us. If I had access to the sites development library and database, I could probably have this issue fixed in a day or 2. So yeah, Spotify is just being lazy about this.



I don't know where I should put this but I think I found a workaround for the OP problem. 

If you click on the song you are wanting to play out of the search results list and make sure it is highlighted,
then you can exit the search bar to bring back all the other songs and it will jump to that song for you on the list,
finally allowing you to simply click play on the song itself.
The Problem so far (I think)
If you play any song from the list that appears from a search it won't loop through your whole playlist anymore, it will only loop through the songs that came up in the search. This means if only one song comes up it will repeat... or at least it used to for me but for some reason now once mine goes through the whole searched list it will play about ten seconds of the first song again then suddenly switch songs to another song from the original playlist. Also the shuffle button becomes greyed out when that happens.
This workaround is more tedious than a regular search but it works.
As a final note I also would appreciate the ability to search across all lists.
