Oct 2018 update: search by genre missing

I'm using Spotify premium on IOS12 in the UK and have just updated to version 8.4.78.643. I was expecting this to have new updates in it including searching by genre (as featured in this article) but it doesn't - the search is the same as before the upgrade.

 

Anyone able to comment on why it's not working as expected?

As I understand it from the page you linked, it's not quite "search by genre". It says that at the top of the screen you'll find your Top Genres. Within those you have playlists built around those genres. It seems to be working fine for me; perhaps it just isn't what you were expecting.

Hey @inkymortar, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

The search has gotten improved and in my end it does search for genres too, even giving me results starting from artists whose style is closest to the ones I currently listen to and/or follow, same for the songs.

Well I'll be darned - accessed Spotify this morning and I now get the same screen shot as you posted, rather than the empty search bar and black screen that was showing yesterday.

 

All sorted.
