Spotify Kids will have handpicked curations for kids that will include TV shows, movies, playlists that will help them sing along during activities like bedtime, homework, playtime and more.

Also, the app offers small UI differences based on the age of the kid you create the account for. For example, the artwork for younger kids is softer and character-based, while content for older kids is more realistic and detailed. As per the company, the kids will be able to listen to ad-free music and they will not be exposed to any explicit content the parents would disapprove of.

Parents will have control over the content being streamed in the app and they can switch accounts whenever they want.

The company has recently rolled out its Premium Family subscription plan in India and there might be chances that Spotify Kids will also arrive in India soon.
