Hello Ronnie!

To do it in the phone app you have to click the icon of 3 little dots in the upper right corner. Then you have to look for the option "search in playlist" and then just type the song!

I'll put some screencaps bellow.

(sorry mine is in spanish but i think you can get the general idea)

I hope this can help you 😄

You can already do that in Spotify!

There is a seach bar just below the playlist cover and title, you can write the name of the song there and it should appear.

(I'll put a screencap bellow in case you can't find the searchbar)

Hi thank you so much for your reply. I have found this on my Spotify desktop but can you do this within the app too? I can’t seem to find it there.

Many thanks for you help.

This only works for one playlist. I want to search for an artist in maybe ten playlists at once. Is this possible?

Hey @funkysverk,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

The option to search for an artist in all your playlists simultaneously is not available at the moment, but if you'd like to present your feedback regarding this as an Idea for Spotify, it'd be great for you to follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Spotify Community
  2. Click on Menu
  3. Click on Ideas > Idea submissions
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on Let’s go

 

As a heads-up, it's good to know that the higher the number of votes an Idea gets, the more likely it is for the Idea to be implemented. If you wish to learn more about how your feedback will reach Spotify, feel free to take a look at this article.

 

Hope you'll find this info useful. Have a nice day!

Look in google for violet guru search. As someone close to the author I can assure you the webapp does only read-only operations and the data stays on your device. And in case of a filtration a outside attacker can't do too much, he only can look at the music you like, or maybe are you listening too much 40's propaganda german songs?
