Spotify updated its app today with focus on enhancing “Your Library” where users can now search using dynamic tags. It also features a new sorting option and the use of search filters. This update brings further enhancement to user experience when searching for songs on your playlist.
Your Library in Spotify is updated with several new features including:
- A new search function that lets users find podcasts or music in their collection
- New search filters view specific results like albums or podcasts, or show only downloaded content
- Sort search results alphabetically, by recently played, or artist name
- Pin up to four playlists, songs, or podcasts to keep them at the top of search results at all times

Similar to Apple Music, individuals can subscribe for $9.99 per month or pay $14.99 for a family plan that supports six users. Recently, it launched a “Duo” plan option for customers who only want two premium accounts for $12.99.
