[Subscription] Kids Mode: Child Friendly option

  • Spotify is great, I use it every day and night. And so do my family members some through their own invitation to my family account, and my daughter uses it through my login because she is underage and is not allowed to have her own account on Spotify technically. Which is quite annoying because music is for everyone to love and enjoy really and my daughter loves music and Spotify particularly so I let her use my devices to listen to music through the app. The problem is when I do this my daughter's taste in music and selections including likes and playlist adds are all added to my account, influencing my daily mixes, algorithms, release radar, playlists etc. Wouldnt it be great to have the option to select another user under your account, or have kids mode, whereby they could have their own sub-profile with their own library and playlists/likes stored and managed by a parent or guardian and content including all access and permissions controlled by the parent or guardian and main account holder. This would then allow the KIDS MODE and childs activity to not only be monitored and made safe as desired by each parent and filtered by words, artists, songs etc but it would allow the child's listening activity on Spotify to not affect the main account holders algorithms and daily mixes etc. It would also give the children a sense of responsibility and maturity having control of their own music hub and control centre and teach them from a young age the skills of organisation, spelling, music, priority, neatness, memory, timing, management and just a general sense of self care and management of something of their own. I have a daughter who craves music each day, nieces and nephews that beg me to set up Spotify for them, but I refuse to do it illegally because that's not how it deserves to be done for both the kids and for Spotify. They both deserve to join forces and unite for once and for all. Whether they are accepted on family plans, or selected as a kids mode user under main login user it would be great to see. @DJ-MastaJ

Thankyou very much

Kids mode would not only encourage our children to listen to music in their own safe parental controlled way, it will also allow us to separate our sometimes extreme and diverse tastes in music and not have them combined in a one user access account, that ends up with jumbled algorithms and messy playlists, daily mixes and release radars. There's no reason why children should not be able to have a safe access mode user account or profile under their parent or guardians primary account holder supervision and login. @osornios  What do you think?

Firstly they need to have a Parental Controls implement on all accounts. If Spotify does that, maybe this may happen.

Also I don’t see why this is a 13 and up app when this app suggests fully nude woman doing Explict things to the viewer on the suggested albums page? That is not right and should not be allowed. It would seem artists are exploiting the whole system for perverts to see pornography everywhere. I guess Spotify is totally ok with this perverted stuff.

I’m not subscribing for premium ever again since you all at Spotify allow this. Giving you guys money is like subscribing to a pornography service. That in of itself is contemptible, disgusting and offensive. Oh btw, don’t let you children ever use this if your not ok showing your kids hard core Pornograhy.

Hey Spotify you guys need to ban some artists. They have outright pornography on there albums.

Yes please, can we have this option. I do not want Sesame Street music in my Discover Weekly or Daily playlists, but I do want my son to have quick easy access to the music he loves, and all his favorites in one place.
