Add a button that controls whether Explicit songs are played or not. When it is off and you're listening to an album or playlist, the explicit songs are skipped. That way you can still listen to your favorite album or playlist when more impressionable members of the family (kids / parents) are around.
Hey Spotify Staff here. We want to update you about a test that is currently running for iOS or Android users.
If you have Spotify on an iOS or Android device you will have an Explicit Content filter option. Just go to Settings > Explicit Content for a toggle to enable or disable Explicit Content.
When Explicit Content is disabled, tracks marked as ‘explicit’ appear greyed out and will be skipped over by Spotify.The setting applies only for that individual account and per device. Explicit Content is also enabled by default. For iOS devices we also require face id/touch id/passcode (if enabled) in order to re-enable Explicit Content once it's been turned off.
Please note: Our explicit content metadata is not perfect, as not all songs are marked “explicit” by labels or rights-owners. Consequently this test is unable to guarantee that no explicit content will play even when it is disabled.
If you spot a song that is incorrectly tagged as explicit or needs an explicit tag, please help us by following these steps:
Click the three dots next to the song
Click Report Explicit Content
You’ll then get a message that says ‘Thank you for reporting’.
You can also sign into our metadata crowdsourcing platformLine-In to report a song as Explicit.
Please note this does not mark the content as explicit for the user but only collects data at the moment.
If you have any questions or comments about this test please post them here. We will close comments on this idea for the moment while we collect your feedback around this test. Thanks!
