Since we firstunveiled the Spotfy Kids appin October 2019 for Spotify Premium Family subscribers, young listeners have been able to explore a playground of sound and begin a lifelong love of music through a standalone app designed just for them. We've also been listening to parents during this time and have been committed to providing increased customization within the app. We started by giving parents the ability toblock individual songs or audio stories in the appas well as giving them access to their kids' "Listening History." Now, we're making it possible for parents to share the music they love-from the songs they grew up playing to the family's dance party playlist-and further curate their child's audio experience withShared Playlistson Spotify Kids.
Being able to share your love of music with your children may feel as essential as teaching them to ride a bike. Shared Playlists-a highly-requested and pin-protected parental settings feature-lets parents share music playlists they've created in their Spotify account directly with their child in Spotify Kids, allowing them to further curate their child's listening experience.
We know that parents often have their own views on which content is and is not appropriate for their kids. The Shared Playlists feature gives parents more control, supplementing the growing library of more than 300,000 kid-friendly tracks and 1,300 playlists on Spotify Kids-all handpicked by our experienced team of editors.
Here's how to share playlists with your little one using the Spotify Kids app:
Note that if you update the playlist in the Spotify app, the playlist in Spotify Kids will be automatically updated too. Plus, you can revisit the PIN-protected parental settings on Spotify Kids at any time to remove a playlist, access your child's listening history, and block or unblock tracks.
