I would like to be able to search for a track, and as part of the result, see all the playlists that contain that track. I am often looking for playlists which feature tracks in the style of a specific track.

Hey @headtale 

Really nice to hear your feedback, super appreciated!

I'll pass it on so that it adds to the discussion around this. In the meantime, have you checked the Monday Discovery card on the homepage? It has a revamped algorithm that many users are now happy with!

I came to Deezer a few years ago when Rdio.com shut down.  Rdio had this feature and it was one of the biggest things I missed in the switch to Deezer.  I was thinking about this feature today trying to find songs similar to one I’m currently into and that led me to this thread.

Here’s hoping Deezer can add this functionality soon - it’s a great way to discover new music!

Hey @raccoonsarecool 

Glad to see you back here. Our product managers are actually discussing this and other improvements around adding songs/searching for them in playlists at the moment. It's something that could be developed in the near future. Subscribe to the topic for updates :v_tone2:

Any updates on this? I haven’t used Deezer much in many months.

We're already tracking this feature request here, @Delve and thanks for supporting :wink:

This needs to be implemented. Automatic mixes are so bad and sometimes they suggest really wrong tracks in completely different mood. User made playlists usually do this job much better, so searching for those playlists with a certain track will make service much better. Also it’s not that hard to implement, user searches for exact artist + track name, no need for complex algorithms.
 

Hi @Deciduous Foliage, hi @raccoonsarecool thank you for bringing more attention to this missing feature. 

I have merged all 3 topics into this one in order to get a better overview of all user voices regarding this.

Is it required to still create topic in ideas forum or you already track this feature for the future updates?

Seconding this, I’m on trial now to see if this works - if it does you’ll have my money.

Hi there, 
I just wanted to say that I’ve been looking for a platform with greater support for finding a playlist via artist, song, or album. I’m trying out Deezer now in hopes that it suits some of this, I see that your searches are accommodating playlists by artists, which is nice. 

I’d really like greater support with searching for a playlist containing X song too. And being able to see MY playlists with X song is the big one. 

I’m adding my library now to see if this will work, if so you’ll have my money.

I want this feature! There are heaps of people who have asked for this to be added to Spotify. Spotify hasn’t listened but maybe Deezer will. Don’t forget to advertise this feature when you add this

Hi there @MindKiss 

Thank you for your query. Our search was simplified and is based on the keyword you type. It's good feedback and fell off our radar since. So I suggest you to have a look and create your own topic in our ideas forum :wink:

Hello,

Is this feature working now somewhere or did Deezer removed it completely? 

Hi, i know Deezer had this feature, and it was very helpful to find playlist easily. But it seems like they have removed the feature. Is this feature going to be released or not.

Hi, no problem. When I search a song, I do get a section in the search results titled "Playlists", but it only displays the playlists with the search term in the name of the playlist, not playlists that contain songs with the search term in their names. Also then it might be a song different to the one I am referring to that happens to have the same name. I would expect to be able to tap the more option (three dots) next to a song, and have the option "Playlists" in addition to "Album Page", "Artist Page" etc. Or am I missing something?

Hi there, sorry for the late reply. We already have this feature. If you search for a song you will get all playlists where the song is in. Are you not able to find this? Let me know if you meant something different.

Hi Emanuel 🙂 Thanks a lot for the feedback. We've seen this before and have already passed this on to the team. They are currently looking into this and we'll let you know in case there are any updates 🙂

Really love this app, but I can't imagine why it doesn't have an option to search for a specific playlist with similar songs of one I want to listen to.

For example: I search for "Stand by me - Oasis" and want to discover some similar music inside many playlists created by other users...

Also there should be an option to listen to a radio based on determined music or playlist. Nowadays there is just the option to listen to a radio based on the artist.

Thanks for the attention.

sure, we'll pass it on! If this is of interest for you: you can access a list of playlists that a certain artist is featured in. Just visit the artist page and go to "playlists" 🙂
Yes it gives the album, would be great if more search could be added. I think this would be helpful for everyone. To see the album other song is in is not helping. To see see other playlist that contains that song is gold. Thanks Ana

Hi there, we don't have that feature for song search yet but it you search for an artist it would give you the most popular playlists where that artist is featured 🙂
