Amazon Alexa (Echo Dot) & Kids Account

Amazon Alexa (Echo Dot) & Kids Account

Plan: Family / Free/Premium: Premium / Country: UK / Device: Amazon (Alexa) Echo Dot

My Question or Issue:

I have a family account that my wife and my 9 year old daughter use, as well as myself. My daughter has an echo dot in her bedroom and spotfiy is connected to that.

The problem is that it seems to only be able to connect to the main spotify account (ie. mine) which causes 2 issues:

1. she can access any music incl. explicit

2. the music she listens to completely messes up my account & its algorithms.

Is there any way to assign her kids account to the echo dot?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey there @charliepinphoto

 

Welcome to the Community and thanks for reaching out.

 

We're afraid that right now our Kids app doesn't have an integration with Alexa.

 

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and we can see how that can be a handy feature. We recommend leaving a +Vote on this idea that supports the idea to launch the Kids app for Amazon speakers.

 

If you're interested in how ideas work and how your feedback reaches the right teams here, check this page out.

 

Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you. We'd be happy to help.

Hi Elena

Thanks for the reply. A shame that there is no solution to this. Especially because if I am out and listening to music then my daughter decides to listen to something on the alexa then it cuts my music off. I have voted on the link but is there any way to raise the importance of this request, and have it coded and released?

Regards

Charlie

Is there any progress on this?  There is zero help for this issue in either Amazon or Spotify help.

 

Thank you.

I was searching to see if there was a solution to this issue. This is ridiculous. If I'm working and my youngest daughter plays something at home on her Dot, it always pulls my account. I can't have this happen. I am going to have to convert her account to a normal one then.

Has any progress at all been made in integrating Spotify Kids into Alexa and Google Home devices??  Many young children do not have access to devices to access the Spotify Kids app (apparently the only way you can use Spotify Kids).  Thus they cannot even use the suggested bluetooth option.  And I'm sorry I'm not going to be selecting each new song for my kids and bluetooth it to their phones (having to log in an out of Spotify accounts, just No).  

This needs to be solved. Us parents don’t want our children to have access to inappropriate or explicit adult content on Alexa. The child account option already exists within Spotify. It seems Spotify and it’s employees don’t value our what our children are exposed to while they hypocritically support walkouts and protests for content any person can simply choose not to listen to.

Any update on this?

Live, love, laugh and listen to music 🙂

Appreciate the reply, but it’s beyond ridiculous that there’s no solution more than two YEARS after this thread began. 😳

Agreed... Pretty poor product development. It's really difficult to written with these family accounts when you have small children. Apple music probably has better support. I might check it out soon. 

Hi I’ve set up my daughter a normal Spotify as I was experiencing this problem. I turners off explicit content off in setting and I seems to work well
