How To Turn Off Viewer Discretion On YouTube Music

YouTube Music users have been encountering disruptions in their playback due to viewer discretion warnings appearing for album covers. These warnings notify users that the content may contain sensitive topics such as suicide or self-harm, requiring acknowledgment before the song can play. This issue seems to be triggered by album covers that depict violent or sensitive imagery, affecting both the mobile and web apps. Frustration mounts as the pop-up alert interrupts the listening experience, even with Restricted Mode deactivated. Despite user complaints, Google’s support maintains that the content warning is functioning as intended.
