Disable Suggestions While Typing in Search Bar

Disable Suggestions While Typing in Search Bar

I see that some users suggested the idea that suggestions should come up as I type.

Please incorporate a settings menu, where this can be disabled.
While trying to see if a podcast I want to listen to is on Spotify, I am getting hung up on each letter typed.  Music from playlists starts playing.
It is very annoying.
Please incorporate a way to disable auto suggestions.

Please resolve this issue


Come on, please resolve this issue. I don't care what other people are typing in their search bars at all and this feature is annoying me out. I'm actually thinking of quitting Spotify the first time ever since I've purchased because of this feature. A simple option in settings to disable this would be just fine for us.
