Spotify has launched its standalone app for children in Canada, France, and the United States. Called Spotify Kids, the family-friendly version of the music streaming service is exclusively for Premium Family subscribers and comes tailored for children aged three and up.
The service was originally launched as a beta in Ireland last year and has since rolled out to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Spotify says the app now has 30 percent more content than when it first launched, including 8,000 songs, 125 playlists, sing-alongs, soundtracks, and audiobooks.
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.
The app also touts educational content for kids, including a playlist hub called Learning that features songs that teach kids about counting, the ABC’s, science, and more.
Children can also find a new global playlist with songs to help them learn general hygiene best practices, like how to wash their hands and cough and sneeze properly into their elbows.
Spotify says it is working alongside children’s brands like Disney Music Group, KIDZ BOP, and Nickelodeon to make the app a unique experience, so expect more content soon.
