[Mobile][Developer] More controls on content

[Mobile][Developer] More controls on content

My child does not like the little kid version of the app. He is almost a teen and wants to listen to similar music as me. While I do block "explicit" content on my account and his, I still can pull up very R and X rated music and podcasts. I can even use the word "**bleep**" to get podcasts with explicit blocked. I'm on a Parenting in a Tech World fb page and I know I'm not alone in being frustrated by this ability for this content to show up on our apps. I'm a dance teacher and have searched for a song only to be met with several songs that are very R and X rated and I should not even see them, let alone accidentally play them. I really hope you get some better content controls. Not even adults want some of this stuff on their account showing up for many reason.
