My Question or Issue
Issue 1: For example, if you have a playlist with 20 songs, and you use the Search Function to search for a certain song and you play that one when you click the Next Button it will always replay that one song, it won't go back to access your whole library of 20 songs.
Is this supposed to work that way or is it a bug? This issue also applies if you search for a certain artist, it will only play the songs from the artist you searched for, ignoring the rest of your playlist.
To replicate this issue, access any playlist or make a new one, add a bunch of songs and use the Search Function to filter it. Play the song you searched for or any song from the artist you searched for and click the Next Button, it seems it creates a temporary new playlist within said playlist and will ignore the other song/s and/or artist/s. Is this intended?
Issue 2: If you sort your playlist by DATE ADDED to be last added and you click the Next Button, they playlist will play the songs in the order that were last added instead of playing it in the order that it is sorted by, so for example if I added 10 songs on Dec, 19th 2020, it will play them in the order I added them that day instead of the order that it got sorted in the playlist.
To replicate this issue, go to any playlist, sort by DATE ADDED to show last added songs first in your playlist (click on DATE ADDED twice) and play the first song in your playlist, then click on the Next Button, the playlist will go through your songs in the order that were added not in the order that are sorted by.

Thanks for your understanding regarding the search and filter function.
Make sure you read the guidelines to submitting ideas for Spotify so that we make the most of these precious input we've been discussing! The devs are always trying to make the app more user friendly so feedback like this is valuable. The new version of the Desktop app will soon be rolling out to all users globally, so hopefully more advanced search options will be implemented there.
Regarding your second issue: We tried reproducing this on our end, but if you sort a playlist by Date Added (Newest first) songs play in sorted order if you use the Play Next function. If you're not getting this result you might want to clear your app cache, following the steps from this Guide and see if that helps.
