[Mobile] Hide specific explicit words in songs

[Mobile] Hide specific explicit words in songs

I love Spotify, but my parents have certain obligations I must uphold in order to use it. I cannot listen to songs  with the n-word in them. They are okay with other curse words, but not this one and understandably so. I’m sure there are other parents who have the same obligations. I think it would be a good idea to implement some type of software that will only block certain words that the user identifies, so users can still enjoy their music( with curse words) and still uphold their parents obligations.

Hey @vkgcmvybapiydaq,

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!


There is such a feature in the Spotify app already. You as a user can block explicit content, so explicit songs won't be playable. Most of those have clean versions which are available on the platform.


You can read more on how to block explicit content here.


Hope this helps 🙂 Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.

That's not what I want. "Explicit" is placed on a song by the artist. I have some songs blocked with no objectionable content. There are also songs without the "Explicit" label that pop the words in anyway. There are certain words that I don't want in my feed. Spotify has most lyrics in it's database and should allow us to block the words we don't want to hear or for others around us to hear. 

I would also like a solution to this. I only want to block songs with the N word. I do not want to blanket block all songs labeled "Explicit". I find that particular word offensive.
