Search function on Samsung Smart TV App does not support keyboard?

Have been trying the app for the smart tv and I like it, but it does not seem to be possible to use a keyboard on the search tab. Is this intended or a bug?

 

Also there seems to be an issue with some songs not showing name/artist the first time a playlist is loaded.

Yes, this is a known isssue. Youtube has the same problem. It doesn't exactly feel modern to try to "write" search input using the remote when there's a perfectly good keyboard available.

 

To my understanding, keyboard support must be enabled by the app developes themselves, i.e. Samsung's hands are tied if a developer (e.g. Spotify, Google) has chosen not to support the keyboard as an input device.

 

So, Spotify, please fix this.

Best place to suggest an idea like this is to make a post over on the Ideas Exchange. Have a quick search first incase it has already been suggested 😉
