[CarPlay] Search within Spotify

Status: Inactive Idea

Currently, I can only browse saved artists, playlists I've created or curated playlists from Spotify in the CarPlay app. Please also turn on the ability to search the catalog as it severely limits the functionality of the app in CarPlay and forces users to be unsafe and use the app on their phone while driving to enjoy Spotify fully.

To be fair, the music app on CarPlay does not have search either and from what I can understand from the limited documentation that is available for carplay (until you get approved by Apple to code for Carplay) doesn't seem to allow search functionality since it doesn't seem to comply with their safety stratigy.

 

However, now with iOS12 coming up, shortcuts could help a bit here. Also in iOS12, to answer @s-911aub_py9q concern, different GPS apps will be allowed on CarPlay.

The irony of Apple's alleged 'safety strategy' is that by not allowing a Siri search, they are at risk of increasing risk as they deny human behaviour. People will want to use their spotify service and inappropriately, handle their phones whilst driving in order to manually search for music. It's not right but it's what people will do. Come on Apple, this is a nonsense.
