So, how to share your favorite playlists with your child using the Spotify Kids app.
- Create a playlist of your family’s favorite tunes on the Spotify app (or choose the one you made in the past). Make sure to review the lyrics, album cover artwork, and any possible explicit tracks (which will be marked with an ‘E’).
- If there are individual songs within the playlist you don’t want to share with your kid, remove them from your playlist in the Spotify app.
- Next, head to the parental settings section of the Spotify Kids app and enter your four-digit pin.
- Tap the “Shared Playlists” section in your kids’ profile. Then, you’ll be able to see your Spotify playlists and select the ones you want to share with each child.
- If the parents are the first time to do this, a pop-up screen will appear to confirm that you want to share the playlist. After, the child can access the playlist on their homepage from a new “Shared with You” section.
