Hi Spotify team, not sure if this is the best way to send in a request for a potential feature, so please let me know if there is a different way. I am a mom of two younger kids and would love to have a way to skip Explicit content/or temporarily disable it in a playlist. I would think this would also be handy to other users, whose have playlists with mixed Explicit and none Explicit songs and are playing them at a gathering. Thank you for your consideration.

We all need an option to only play a clean or radio version of a song.  There are plenty of reasons for this that don't include artist censorship.  If they provide the songs for the radio, it should be provided on Spotify too.  Why am I paying $10.**bleep** a month for a premium version of the service to not be able to find a clean version to play?

I notice that all the explicit songs are greyed out and I have no way to get rid of this filter. I tried everything. Can someone help?

Hello and thank you for responding, but I'm not quite sure we are on the
same page. I want songs with swearing in them. Idk what I asked, but I know
I would never want to censor { or is it censure?] a song. I was very bent
out of shape about my playlists being censored starting January 2017, and I
sent off some heated emails to Spotify and YouTube back in 2017. Well you
know what, the music has come back uncensored [well, just a little bit} but
I'm happy about it, very happy. I won't get into how and why it came back,
[it's pretty obvious what the return of uncensored music aligns with
politically, enough said}. I see Spotify and YouTube were most likely "held
hostage" so to speak. I don't fault either anymore. I think there is a
scary trend toward people being dismissive of artists intentions. They
don't want to hear explicit music [ and by that, I mean" Welcome to the
Ghetto". I don't do swearing for swearings sake. Emphasis is key], they
want to be lulled into a state of imaginary grace.

  1. Please extend the "Report Explicit Content" function to the desktop and web player apps. As far as I can tell, it's only available to me on my mobile app (iOS). 
  2. Actually follow-through to review the song whenever users flag a song as explicit.
  3. Add functionality to mark album cover/artwork as explicit as well.

Thank you.

I find it a bit... seedy that you have to PAY for Premium to block explicit content on mobile. I know for a fact that you can block explicit content on the desktop app, but you need to constantly update it, or it doesn't always work.

Spotify will simply not play it, effectively skipping it.
