Searching for tracks and podcasts in Spotify is another cool thing you can do. You can search from your library instead of whole Spotify. You can tap the ‘Your Library’ tab to reveal search bar when you are in Albums, playlists or Artists. This search bar only brings you the tracks you saved.
Another thing you can do is you can filter out the husks in the search bar.

Also, you can add operators like AND/OR/NOT to narrow your search.
In case you have accidentally deleted your favorite playlists or can’t find one. Spotify provides you to bring back from the dead. You have to go to the browser version of your account and resurrect the tracks clicking on ‘Recover Playlists’ option.
