28 Dec 12 Google Play Scan-and-Match Feature Censoring Explicit Lyrics

Google’s recently launched scan-and-match feature for Google Play has drawn early criticism from users who say the tool is weeding out explicit lyrics.

The new Google Play Music Manager feature, which scans your online music library and stores Google Play licensed versions of as many as 20,000 of your songs in the cloud, reportedly is giving Android device users less naughty renditions — and vice versa.

Google Play, however, offers a “Fix Incorrect Match” option that overrides the initial match.

Rival cloud storage services — iTunes Match and Amazon Cloud Player — previously have received complaints about storing incorrect versions of songs, too. Google rolled out the scan-and-match feature in the U.S. on Dec. 18. It had already been available in Europe.
