Search for songs in Spotify playlists on iPhone
Spotify for iPhone hides the playlist search option, but we’ll show you how to find it easily. First, launch the Spotify app and open a playlist.
On the Playlists screen, swipe down anywhere on the screen to reveal the Search Playlist search bar.
Tap Search Playlist and type the name of the song or artist you’re looking for.
You’ll see a list of results just below the search bar. Tap a song in the list to play it.
Search for songs in Spotify playlists on Android
Spotify’s Android app takes a slightly different approach to letting you find songs in a playlist. Load a playlist, then tap the three dots icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select “Search Playlist” to search for songs in the playlist.
Tap “Search Playlist” again to use the search box.
Type the name of the song or artist to display the search results. You can then tap the song name to play it. Keep in mind that if you search for an artist, Spotify will show you all the songs by that particular artist that are part of the playlist.
Search for songs in Spotify playlists on Windows or Mac
Spotify’s apps on Windows and Mac take a similar approach to letting you find songs in playlists. Launch the app first and then open a playlist in Spotify for Windows or Mac. Then click the magnifying glass icon above the first song in the playlist.
This will reveal the “Playlist Search” box. By typing a song title or artist in this box, you can easily search for songs in playlists.
With your playlists sorted and your songs found, you may want to check out how to use Spotify offline on Windows and Mac.
