After the launch of a new Spotify Kids app last October, Spotify is back with even more features for parents to love. Now parents can track what songs their kids have listened to and, if necessary, block songs from future game sessions. Since it's part of the Kids app, you'll need a premium family account to take advantage of the new controls.
Spotify aimed its Kids app at children aged three and older, so for the most part the music is composed. You can even set an age limit to keep the music appropriate for what your child wants to hear. But curation is not perfect, and not every child is the same.
With that in mind, the new parental controls are a welcome (and requested) feature. Now you can check your children's listening history to see which songs they have streamed. If you find something inappropriate, you can block the number of future sessions.
That's all well and good, but there is an added benefit that we can think of further good parenting. Tired of hearing Olaf sing When I Older of Frozen 2 ? Have you listened to the even worse version of I Just Can't Wait to Be King  from the "live action" Lion King 80 million times? Well, with the new controls you can block them for a while. Sometimes parental controls are less about protecting your kids and more about protecting your common sense. You can always unblock a number if you are tired of a break.
To access the news settings, you have to go to the 'Adults' selection. and select the child you want to manage. Spotify says you can access the new controls from today.
