Add search option on Smartwatch Platforms

Anyone that owns a smartwatch running Wear OS, Tizen OS or WatchOS knows how frustrating it is to search a song natively in the app. I feel that the Smartwatch platform could be perfected if a search option is added. For example, the user could use either voice recognition or keyboard swipe text included in these watches. Thank you Spotify.

In the (latest) TizenOS version search function has been added although the voice input doesn't work well in stand-alone mode (I guess the voice input can't handle different languages e.g. English songnames in German watch settings).

I miss the search function in the new Wear OS app.

For me, searching songs directly via smartwach without smartphone is a must. Hope this will be added soon.

I suggest to enable the SEARCH option on Spotify when using it in a Galaxy Watch4(LTE). I can only play songs that are in my liked/favorites so far when I go out for running.

add the search option so that we can search and play any song just like apple music. Because this feature is not there I find taking Spotify premium as a waste of money and find apple music far better with more features and less cost so pls try to improve your app if u want to increase the number of people taking Spotify premium and the other issue is that account is getting suspended without any reason so u need to fix that.

I think a Search option must be added to Spotify in order to search songs in Galaxy Watch 4.
