Add search functions for Spotify songs in the Nest Hub

Hey dear Google and Community.

I am a big fan of all the products that I've bought. I got 2 Nest audio and 1 google Home (Original). Today I bought an Nest Hub 2nd, but was quite disappointed to know that there is no search functions(For typing) for the Spotify. Not even Netflix. You can only choose playlist or stop/start in Spotify!(Big nightmare, since that was the main reason I bought this product) 😞 

I know many of you will say: "Well you can just use your phone to search  for your songs on Spotify or tell Google".

First it's an issue for many reason. First being when I tell Google(In danish), it does not always know what I am saying. Specially when I am asking for danish songs. And secondly and more importantly it could have been cool, when friends came over to search for songs without using my phone, or without yelling "Hey google"!

I dont know if I am the only one who has asked for this, but I really hope they would add the search function for Spotify 😞  I am bit sad of buying this product now.

Hi Rebin,

 

Thanks for reaching out and apologies for the late response.

 

Right now, the only way that we can search videos/songs is either by voice or by using our phone for casting. I understand that it would be a very useful feature for the Google Nest displays if this would be available. It’s good to know that there are suggestions coming from the users of our devices and we appreciate that. It would be extremely helpful for us if you can provide us your insights and feedback on what are the things we should improve for better user experience. 

 

Best,
Princess

Totally agree on this. I bought the nest hub for my daughter thinking she could use it to search and play music on spotify, alas, she can't!

I hate when google makes that copy/paste answer. 

😥

 

So why haven't you added the function yet?
