Some time ago, i had a problem with my Desktop App, so that my searchbar magically dissapeared into thin air.
But that only seemed to be the case for my account (and some others, which you can see here), since friends and family still had it, even on the same computer.
Seeing, that this was account based, i contacted the Spotify support on Twitter, asking for help. They just told me that i should try to reinstall Spotify, which i had already done, but did once again, just to be sure. It didn't help.
Turns out, Spotify seems to test new things on users, whithout their consent. That bothers me, because spotify does have an Alpha and Beta programm, so why test things on users, who just want to enjoy their music? Having my searchbar removed bothered me quite a lot, and i don't want that to happen to others.
So please Spotify, keep tests to users that sign up for your Beta Program, that would be nice!
