My Question or Issue
i'm having trouble with Spotify's search function for albums. Here is an example:
If i search for "uncommon denominators" by NRBQ, i can't find it. And if search for "Ridin' in my car," which is on that album, it doesn't come up. However, when i do a Google search (outside of Spotify) the song comes up, and if i click on the link, it takes me to the album in the web version of Spotify.
Oddly, if i search for "Uncommon denominators" in the web version, the album isn't listed, either. But clearly it's in Spotify! the only way i can locate it is thru a Google Search (bizarre).
I'm having trouble finding many albums/songs in Spotify, and this is just one example. what am i doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, it's all up to the right-holder which albums or even which songs from an album are available on Spotify.
If a whole album is not available on Spotify you will likely not find it when searching for it using the Spotify search engine. You might see this album if you have the songs saved in a playlist because the music was available in the past. You might also find this album using Google because it takes a while for Google search results to adjust.
Hope this answers your question. Let us know if there is anything else.
Have a nice day!
