The music streaming app announced the launching of Spotify Kids through a blog post released on the 30th of October. “Spotify is committed to bringing audio content such as music and stories to more people in more ways – including the next generation of listeners. That’s why we decided to launch a fun standalone app designed with safety in mind specifically for kids and families,” Spotify said.

According to Alex Norstrom, Chief Premium Business Officer at Spotify, Spotify Kids was born out of the desire to create a playground of sound just for kids – to build a place where younger kids can explore their favorite music and stories in a fun environment.

“The content is ad-free and hand-picked by a team of editors, and the experience is bursting with color. Our visuals help guide young minds through the app with simple navigation and scaled-back text,” Norstrom added.

When asked about the difference between Spotify and Spotify Kids, Norstrom said, “Spotify Kids is a standalone app available exclusively for Premium Family subscribers and intended for kids age 3+. The content within Kids is hand-picked by a team of editors, who have nearly100 years of combined experience curating content for kids.”

The Spotify Kids was launched in beta and is now available in Ireland and will launch soon in all markets.
