My Question or Issue

how can I find a song in a playlist?  I can think of a number of use cases where this is valuable:

 

1.  I want to see if a song is in a playlist.  Rather than find the song and try to add it to one or more playlists, i should be able to easily find it in the playlist.
2.  I want to remove a song from a playlist.  I decide i no longer want a song in a playlist, so I want to quickly locate the song in the playlist (without endlessly scrolling to see if can see the song).

3. I want to remove a song from multiple playlists (a logical extension of #2)

 

i can't find any way to easily do this.

Hi @eschurr

 

You can find certain songs by using Filter option.

 

For Android: 

  • Go to the playlist.
    Note: In Liked Songs, pull down and release to display Find in Liked Songs.
  • Tap the three dots in the top-right corner.
  • Tap Find in playlist.
  • Enter a search term. Only titles containing that term are now listed.
  • To return to the original listing, either clear your search or tap X or Cancel to remove the filter.

 

For Desktop:

  • Select Filter at the top of track listings.
  • Enter a search term. Only titles containing that term are now listed.
  • To return to the original listing, either clear your search or click X to remove the filter.

Thank you for your quick reply. If I understand this correctly, I have to go to each playlist I suspect the song is in and filter on it. That's pretty cumbersome if I have a lot of playlists. It seems to me there should be an easy way to find a song and then see what lists it is in....is there a way to do that?
