Spotify Kids

Spotify is shaking up the family entertainment space with the debut of its Spotify Kids app.

The ad-free, curated audio app launched last fall in select markets where Spotify Premium Subscriptions were available. Now, with kids and families spending time at home amid the COVID-19 situation, Spotify Kids is available for listeners in the U.S., Canada, and France.

Spotify Kids includes more than 8,000 songs — a 30% increase from the beta version — from content partners including DisneyNickelodeonKidz Bop, and others.

The app features audiobooks and stories including Disney Music Group Stories, fairytales, classics, and short stories; bedtime programming including lullabies, calming music and sounds, and bedtime stories; diverse content and playlists including Spanish-language, country, Christian, Motown, and more; pop culture content including music from Trolls World Tour and Frozen 2; and educational musical content in a special learning hub.

Kids can even stream the new song from Pinkfong Baby Shark that teaches a much-buzzed-about skill these days: washing hands!
