I used to be able to search by year by typing "year:xxxx" into the search field. Not sure why this was removed.
This was reported and is being looked into. You can find all the info about it on this post.
If anything else comes up, don't hesitate to open a new thread.
Apparently this is just a bug. If you enter year:xxxx and THEN other search terms (instead of putting year:xxxx at the end), it still works. Hopefully this bug can get fixed soon, but at least there is a workaround.
Hi @djisf, welcome to the Spotify Community!
The search by year is available. If it's not working on your side, could you let us know what device, operating system and Spotify version you're using? Also, did this start happening after a specific update or event?
In the meantime, we recommend you give it a try on another device.
Hope to hear from you soon 🙂
Not sure when this started happening. Here is how to repro:
1. First, search for the following: label:"paper recordings" year:2018
You will see many results, most of which are NOT from 2018
2. Then, search for the following: year:2018 label:"paper recordings"
You will see results only from 2018
Looks like there is some kind of parsing bug that depends on where the year is located in the search string.
