Spotify's Chief Content Officer Ken Parks stopped off in Boston today for a quick appearance at the Berklee College of Music's Rethink Music conference to answer questions from an audience full of music professionals and students. We had the opportunity to ask Parks if Spotify plans to improve search-ability of its playlist system, noting that Spotify's search capabilities are rather limited in terms of letting users find playlists created by users who aren't directly in your social circle. Parks responded definitively: "the short answer is yes, and I agree that is something that could use a lot of improvement." While he didn't say when we might see these improvements, it seems that Spotify definitely recognizes this need, as Parks reiterated "we plan to make that much better, it has to be."
