How to search and inside playlists on Spotify

Thanks to Spotify’s search capabilities you can easily search both within and in playlists when using the app.

Searching for playlists is the same as searching for any song, artist or album. Once you have entered your search, scroll to find the “Playlists” category and select from all the playlists available from your searches.

Meanwhile, searching within a playlist on your computer uses the same shortcut you would use on the Internet or in a document. You can use the CTRL + F keys on a PC or COMMAND + F on a Mac to open a separate search bar within the playlist. On the app, you’ll simply have to swipe down at the top of the playlist page to bring up a hidden search bar.

Here’s how to search for playlists on Spotify on your computer or mobile device.
