How to set up a spotify kids account

Spotify has always offered kid-friendly content. By creating a Spotify Kids account, parents can give children their own app that features over 8,000 songs in different languages, as well as stories, lullabies, and sounds for sleeping.

Spotify Kids Is a Listening App Built for Kids

Many kids have their own smartphones and tablets, and parents often want to filter out age-inappropriate content. Spotify offers a wide variety of songs with explicit lyrics, podcasts with mature content, and many more things that aren’t suitable for young children.

For Spotify Kids, the company’s editors have curated all of the 8,000+ songs, including those from big names like Disney, PBS, Nickelodeon, Discovery, and Universal. All the content that appears on Spotify Kids has been manually approved by these editors, ensuring that all content is actually kid-friendly.

The standalone app provides kids with their own interface, their own library, their own favorites. This personalized experience is split into two distinct designs: one brightly animated but basic interface designed for kids 0-6, and another more detailed interface for older kids 5-12.

Spotify Kids Is Free For Premium Family Subscribers

For $14.99/month, up to six family members of any age can have their own accounts. All of the other accounts can be Spotify Kids accounts except for the primary account holder, of course.

Spotify Premium Family also comes with cool features like family mixes based on everyone’s tastes, as well as parental controls. These controls primarily consist of the ability to enable or disable any content marked as explicit by Spotify’s editors.

Students can always sign themselves up for the Spotify Student plan, which costs only $4.99/month. This plan also comes with access to Hulu (with ads) and Showtime. If you’ve previously subscribed to Spotify Premium, you may not be eligible. Your results may vary.

Spotify Kids Is Easy to Setup

Once your subscription to Spotify Premium Family is active, all you need to do to set each kid up with an account is to install the Spotify Kids app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Log in to that app with your credentials, follow the steps to create an account, and start listening to your favorites.

There’s an entirely separate Spotify Kids Privacy Policy, which you’ll need to agree to when you’re setting up the first kid’s account. You’ll receive a Privacy Notice receipt via email to verify that you’ve agreed to the terms.

While most apps and subscription services provide some kind of consideration for kids and parents, it’s great to see a big name like Spotify emerging with an entire app dedicated to kids and their unique needs.

I have bought spotify family and have problems setting it up for our children.

It was no problem for my wife (I sent her the email and she can use it now). Our children are too young to have their own email adress so I´m struggling here. I used my email adress for our children. How do I configure Spotify on their tablets (they both own a Amazon fire for kids). I installed spotify but if I logon with my account I don´t see any possibility to change the account.

Does every user need their own email adress and password?

How can I configure Spotify on their tablets?

Thank you so much for posting your issue to the Community – I’m here to help!

Unfortunately, this is a bit of a sticky situation. For an account to be used for Spotify Premium for Family, there needs to be an email address that isn’t used with another account, and it doesn’t seem that that’s possible here, if they’re underage for the email provider.

Moreover, your children would need to be 13 years or older to create an account on Spotify. Find out about the age requirements of creating a Spotify account here: https://www.spotify.com/legal/end-user-agreement/#s1

Your kids, however, are free to explore the world of Music on Spotify under your supervision and your account.
