Spotify is competing with Apple Music at the top of the line streaming services war. The Spotify Kids seems to be an entirely new bullet that most other streaming services didn’t introduce until now.
Aimed purely at the young ones who can enjoy some music of their own without explicit content, Spotify Kids aims to be a dedicated service that parents can rely on. The company has launched this service as a beta only in Ireland right now but they have promised that it will soon be launched in all countries in the next few months.
The added advantage that you gain is that everything on this standalone app on Android and iOS will be curated for the kids. Right from informative songs to talk shows and lots of exclusive content, the kids can now use less of their eyes and more of their ears. It is good news for those parents who are really worried about the massive display viewing time that children dedicated themselves to.
In partnership with major players like Discovery Kids, Universal Pictures and Nickelodeon, Spotify Kids aims to keep the young ones busy for long hours. They will also be able to choose their own cartoon avatar, enjoy creating playlists and be part of the family membership plan. It also gives them an advantage to have an app dedicated entirely for them to play around with family-friendly audio content.
With the internet being such a vast place even for adults to get lost into, it is a darker place for kids that intimidates every parent out there. The services like Kid’s mode on Samsung and other phones, YouTube Kids and now the Spotify Kids app combine to provide a safe, connected experience for the young ones. They can enjoy content as any adult would do, move around the app, listen to songs and also enjoy shows on their favorite audio channels.
It is expected to be rolled out as an additional service for all users who have Spotify premium family plan enabled. The ad-free service ensures your children are protected against unwanted ads and as it is difficult to filter it, the company offers a paid service as the only option available.
