Explicit button

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.

Hello everyone, Spotify Staff here again. We wanted to let you all know we still think this is a good idea. We don't have any specific updates for you on this but we hear your feedback that you are interested in filtering explicit content. If we any information to share on this feature request I will post here first. Thanks folks!

Oh, the irony....

What if I say I'm an artist and my comments are art and they have no right to censor my art?

I agree with all the comments. I love discovering new music but some lyrics just make me cringe. I don't need that unnecessary language in my life. I don't want spotify to censor but give me an option in settings to choose radio edit or skip explicit tracks. Thanks

Would purchase the Family Plan if I could set permissions for the kiddos.

Family plan?  This has nothing to do necessarily with family.  I am 50 years old, and I have a sinlge premium accound, and I don't want to listen to explicit lyrics.  Allowing this feature only for the family plan would be a mistake.

Agreed. I am 28 and also would like the option of controlling what I
listen to. I don't like explicit lyrics. I don't want to listen to them.

So I don't know why Spotify is trying to force this down the throats of
those who would otherwise support their product.

I was actually listening to a kids album playlist anda song with clear, explicit lyrics came on. Lucky kids had left room. Had to just mute til it finished. Not cool spotify!

Yes! Brilliant.

 

We could add hypocrisy to irony, do you think?

The lack of an explicit filter is why I uninstalled Spotify in the past.  I want to like the service but it looks like I will uninstall again.

Robbo75 Thanks for getting it aslo thanks to "saved" for the additional comment.  I personally felt it was the height of hypocrisy  to have the guidelines for us the users be one way and for the company to be a 180 and  supporting the exact opposite. Still do not understand their thinking.
