Spotify Kids is a standalone app to help children find more songs that are appropriate. Now, the app is adding parental controls, the ability to review a child’s listening history and an option to block individual songs and audio stories.
Here’s how parents can log into the parents can block songs.
- Log into the “grown-ups” section of Spotify Kids.
- Tap the account you want to check out.
- Head to “Listening History.”
- From here, tap the “block” icon beside a track to hide it.
- Once hidden, that song won’t be visible anywhere in the child’s app.
- Note: Blocking a song only removes it from that child’s account so you can customize what each kid is able to listen to.
- You can unblock content at any time by revisiting the PIN-protected “Listening History” or “Blocked Content” and tapping the icon again.
Oddly enough, a song can only be blocked if it’s already in the app’s Listening History.
