Search

Find what you’re looking for with Search. With the Spotify search bar, you can find:

  • Songs
  • Albums
  • Artists
  • Playlists
  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Genres and moods
  • Other Spotify users
    Note: If you can’t find another Spotify user by typing their name, it’s likely because they don’t have a display name (display names can be set by connecting to Facebook). Try searching spotify:user: followed by their Spotify username instead (with no spaces).
