Spotify Kids, a version of its platform geared for children from three years old and to be available to users of the
Premium Family Plan at no additional cost.
The Spotify Kids app is available in beta for iOS and Android only in Ireland, although the company is expected to cover the rest of the markets where the Spotify family plan is offered, according to a statement released by the company.
The new Spotify application has features specially adapted for the little ones, such as singalongs, soundtracks and stories to discover and explore. The content shown is manually selected by publishers. In this way, Spotify joins the segment where competitors such as YouTube already have a

Among its main differences with the main application, the version for children does not include advertisements – since it is part of the Premium Family Plan – and adds privacy and parental control functions, allowing parents to choose the option of 'Audio for smaller children' or 'Audio for older children' depending on age.
In addition, Spotify Kids allows functions such as listening to favorite content with the user account, using the option to explore to discover music and stories, listening to playlists for children and playing songs offline – initially only on iOS.
"Spotify Kids is based on a completely personalized world, full of sound, shape and color, where our young listeners can start enjoying music and audio stories for life," said Alex Norstrm, director of Digital Business at Spotify .
