How add songs/playlists to Kids' Premium Family Kids Account?

Premium Family Account with 2 Kid's Accounts. 

Kids Accounts set to OLDER Kids

Using iPads but has nothing to do with issue/question.

 

Is there a setting/option that I can share a Playlist with my kids from my open/unfiltered Master Account that will appear in their (Older) Kids Accounts.

 

Before the recent "Kids Accounts" feature was added, I had a special account set to No Explicit and I had a "SafeForKids" named playlist that I would drop songs into and it was the only Playlist on their device.  

 

I'd like to drop that same Playlist into their new "Kids Account" because some of the songs do not qualify or exist in the realm of songs available in the "Kids Account" world they have access to.

 

That make sense?  Any ideas or is this even possible being that these accounts technically don't have Playlists, they only have "Favorites."

Hey there @MortysTW!

 

Thanks for bringing this up with us and welcome to the Community. We'll be happy to explain a bit more about this.

 

Right now all the songs in the Kids app are curated by a team of our editors and it's not possible to add songs that are not already included in the catalog.

 

As you mention the app has the feature to save songs in Favorites and if you'd like to add the songs from the playlists you used to have, you'll need to look them up and add them manually.

 

We understand that this might take some time but we're doing our best to provide a safe and pleasant environment in the Kids app, so some features work differently between the two apps.

 

Hopefully this info helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

 

Take care 🙂

I appreciate the filtering. I do feel much better leaving my kids alone
with their free (filtrered) choice of music. Was just hoping there was a
way to slip in manually via Parental Controls specific songs. As some
music artist are explicit but will put out a clean song occasionally safe
for the kids. And such songs do not exist in the search query of the Kids
App.

But thank you for the reply. Maybe in the future you guys can figure out
something with your legal department that tags songs as "Added by Parent"
and maybe some how in the Parent's App they have a list of all songs they
added and maybe tag the Artists as Explicit, even if the song isn't. Just
keep jamming in the parents face what THEY added so they can't say "I had
no idea Spotify, I'm going to sue you for destroying my innocent child."
So that when some moron tries to to sue Spotify over a song they personally
added, you guys are safe. Such as "Ring my Bell" by Anita Ward. Been
singing along not thinking about it until one day I learned what female
anatomy piece the "Bell" represented when I was close to 40 years old.
And suddenly the song technically can be qualified as explicit.

I get it. Legal issue you are avoiding. Thank you for reply. Please
keep it on the back burner of features if you guys figure it out please.
