[Mobile] Option to disable swipe to skip to next song

Several times when playing a song, I swipe down and hide the currently playing song to view the playlist.

 

However I am left handed and several times the app regocnize swipe left and skips the song that is playing.

 

It would be nice if I could disable the left swipe gesture in Spotify preferences.

My idea was marked as a duplicate to this, but it's different. I don't want swipe to skip disabled entirely. I only want it disabled below the static play/pause and skip buttons.

I can't believe there isn't a way to turn off the skip motion sensor yet, surely it's not that difficult a function to add? It accidentally changes way too often.
