Spotify has launched its “Spotify Kids” music streaming app for children in Canada, France, and the United States. The app provides a family-friendly version of the streaming service and is available to Premium Family subscribers. Content is aimed at kids aged three and up.
The service launch in beta in Ireland in 2019 and has since expanded to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Now, at a time when so many kids are home from school, we’re bringing the experience to even more people as the app rolls out in the U.S., Canada, and France — and we hope parents there will find it useful as well.
Spotify says the service now offers 30% more content than it did when first launched, offering 8,000 songs, 125 playlists, sing-alongs, soundtracks, and audiobooks.
In the U.S. and Canada, there are now more than 8,000 songs available in the Kids app—that’s 30% more than when we first launched. And because variety is the spice of life, every day we’re adding more songs in all markets. We’ve also added more audiobooks and stories to the library, including Disney Music Group Stories, fairytales, classics, and short stories.
Educational content is available, including a playlist hub called Learning that features songs that teach kids about counting, the ABC’s, science, and more.
Spotify says it knows the U.S. is a melting pot of different cultures, so it is also offering Spanish-language, country, Christian, Motown, and soul dance party playlists in the U.S. Kids app.
Spotify is working with children’s brands like Disney Music Group, KIDZ BOP, and Nickelodeon to make the app a unique experience.
The Spotify Kids app is available free in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
