Spotify continues to develop its Kids app, an offshoot of its premium service that's aimed to give parents a child-friendly subset of the streaming giant's library.
First, Spotify Kids is getting a bit more global. The beta app rollout is available from today in Japan and Germany, and now the company is now expanding the level of control parents will have over audio content.
As of today, Spotify Kids is now available for Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, and Japan.
Yesterday, Spotify also announced Group Session, another service that builds off its Premium plan, aimed at connecting friends for socially distanced music experiences. While these features aren't for everyone, Spotify's Premium offerings continue to set the company apart from competitors like Apple and Google.
