Search algorithm seems to have changed few minutes ago here in India. See the below pic.
There are many tracks available in Spotify which match my search (title & artist); they should be at the top of the search result, like in the previous algorithm.
chiming in on this one. Here (Germany) I noticed an improved search function yesterday (better handling of common abbreviations like "feat." "ft", or "pts"). That's good (although I couldn't replicate this improvement today).
However, since today I will always receive recommendations for some presumably popular titles (like "As It Was" from Harry Styles), no matter what search term I enter. I don't know if that's a bug or a "feature" (boosting titles that are likely to be popular anyway).
It is slightly annoying if I receive the Harry Styles title in my list of searched items when it appears behind the title that I actually searched.
It is quite annoying if I search for a title that is not on Spotify and receive the Harry Styles title as the very first entry - suggesting that I found something when in fact I didn't.
But I find it unacceptable if I search for something, Spotify yields a hit, and still displays the searched item in second place. Example attached. Why do I get a recommendation for Harry Styles in first place when I am entering the title of a symphony (and the actual hit appears in second place)??
Yeah...algoritm is **bleep**. Really dont know how people like this have radio without no profiles
