[iOS][Search] Ignore "Feat." in search bar

[iOS][Search] Ignore "Feat." in search bar

When I Shazam a song, it often happens that a track title has the following format:

"Song Title - Artist Feat. Singer"

Then, when I press Open Spotify it will copy that track title into the search bar. And VERY often, Spotify is unable to find the track. I have to manually try to find the word Feat. and position the cursor at the period mark and start deleting characters. Then, when the word Feat. is deleted, all of a sudden Spotify CAN find the track. When you have to do this often, it is getting quite tedious.

Which lead me to think:

How hard is it to just ignore the word "Feat." and other variations?

It would make a lot of difference for people using Shazam -> Spotify!

Btw, I am using iPhone.

Thank you for considering my idea.
