Now available only in Ireland and in beta, Spotify Kids the music streaming application for children aged three and over: here's what it offers
If true that children are the listeners of the future, Spotify goes to the conquest of baby music lovers and prepares to launch Spotify Kids, one music streaming app designed specifically for the little ones. Without advertising, with content checked and chosen ad hoc, and with guaranteed privacy.
The streaming service for childrenfrom three years up is proposed for now only in Ireland and in beta to families who have a season ticket Premium Family, but in the coming months it will be available in all countries for those who have activated this subscription.
In the dedicated app, designed in a cheerful and playful way, children can create a custom avatar that identifies them and can listen to songs, music and stories manually selected by a team of child education experts. There are available contents that arrive among others from Nickelodeon, Disney, Discovery Kids, Universal Pictures and BookBeat, which is a streaming audio service aimed at families and children.
That children are used to listening to music in the family is a journey by car or during games, as noted. But the idea of Spotify Kids explains Alex Norstrm, chief business officer of Spotify, to create an experience tailored to the smallest, and naturally under the control of parents. Most audio experiences have been created with adults in mind, which means that they are not simple, easy or fun to use for children, explained Norstrm. Spotify Kids born from the desire to create a sound playground for children only, to create a place where younger children can explore their favorite music and stories in a fun environment.
An essential factor, the app aims to give guarantees on security and privacy: does not contain advertising, does not collect data on the position, allows parents to delete the data associated with the child's account and check their experience. It is also possible to choose the Audio for Young Kids mode and the Audio for Older Kids mode, designed and designed differently for different age groups.
