[Android] Mark songs as either "clean" or "explicit" on mobile

[Android] Mark songs as either "clean" or "explicit" on mobile

I think this is already implemented on the windows/mac version, but it's beyond irritating that this isn't apparent on the Android yet (idk about IOS). I keep adding cleaned versions of songs to my playlist because there's nothing that indicates they have been cleaned. 


There was an approved idea thread in 2013 that already asked for a feature to hide clean songs and it never got implemented. Please, for the love of music, reconsider this. It's so annoying.


The other way around this is also really frustrating. Say you want your kid to enjoy some hip-hop without all the cussing and you accidentally put on the explicit version.

Hey @KineticRaptor, thanks for your question! I hope I'm not misunderstanding what you're asking, so please correct me if this isn't what you mean; however, you should see an "E" label, as in the attached screenshot, on explicit tracks.

Also, if you are trying to avoid playing explicit tracks as in your example, there is a setting in the Android settings that says "Allow Explicit Content." If you toggle this setting off, it should then skip any explicit tracks.


I hope that helps!
