Taylor Swift fans face frustration as Google’s vault puzzle, meant to reveal her 1989 (Taylor’s Version) tracklist, encounters technical glitches.

Taylor Swift, renowned for her enigmatic Easter eggs and creative album reveals, has hit a stumbling block in her latest puzzle-driven promotional campaign. As Swifties worldwide eagerly sought to unlock the mysteries behind her 1989 (Taylor’s Version) tracklist, Google’s vault puzzle failed to live up to expectations, leaving fans grappling with technical difficulties.

The concept was simple enough: Google users searching for Taylor Swift could click on a blue vault icon that appeared in the lower right-hand corner of the search results. Solving one of the 89 word puzzles hidden within the vault was supposed to inch fans closer to unveiling the highly anticipated track titles from Taylor’s re-recorded 1989 album.

However, what was meant to be a thrilling journey into Swift’s musical treasure trove turned into a digital maze for many. Users reported that the vault puzzle either failed to appear or, when it did, rejected their answers. Some persevered, trying different browsers and methods to access the puzzles, while others expressed frustration on social media.

Google, in response to the glitch, acknowledged the issue, calling it a “vault jam”. They assured fans that repairs were underway to resolve the problems plaguing the puzzle game. The tech giant’s initial promise was that once 33 million puzzles had been successfully solved, the vault would open, revealing the track titles for 1989 (Taylor’s Version). However, this goal appeared to be a formidable challenge given the technical hiccups.

Despite the frustrations, Swift’s dedication to re-recording her albums and reclaiming ownership of her music remains unwavering. Her mission to regain control of her catalog began after her original recordings were sold to a private equity firm, a move she strongly opposed. With the release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on the horizon, Swift is tantalizingly close to achieving her goal of owning all her music once again.
