A special place for kids on two streaming services — Apple Music and Spotify
One of the most popular sections on Apple Music has got an upgrade. Kids and Family is now packed with new curated playlists and existing ones come with updated artwork.
Listeners can now enjoy the new Fun! series of playlists, including Kids Fit Fun!, Playdate Fun!, ABC Fun! and many more.
These are packed with songs ranging from educational to motivational and everything in between to keep kids singing, dancing and learning for hours.
With the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in time spent listening to Kids and Family content on Apple Music.
There has been an increase of over 105 per cent in just in the last four weeks alone. Most notably, popular playlists like Family Dance Party and Kids Dance Party, Family Pop and Para Los Ninos have seen dramatic increases as families looked for ways to stay active and entertained.
Children’s music was once restricted to lullabies and play-songs that were passed down from generation to generation.
Now there are more choices, going beyond a cheerful pink dinosaur singing. The Kids and Family space offers playlists and videos for almost every occasion, from bathtime to dinner time to dance time and more.
Apple Music is also available on Android and Amazon Echo. Additionally, with an Apple Music family subscription up to six people can enjoy unlimited access to Apple Music on their devices.
Kids love fables and fairy tales. Spotify, in partnership with Tulika Publishers, has launched Talking Tales From Tulika. A Spotify original, produced by Asiaville, the podcast will be available in three languages — English, Hindi and Tamil, and provide a refreshing and immersive audio experience for the young minds. Some of the themes covered in the podcast are…
- The Gajapati Kulapati Series (ages: 2+): One of Tulika’s most popular characters is Gajapati Kulapati — an adorable elephant who has very relatable problems, whether it’s catching a cold or tummy troubles.
- Food Fun (ages: 5+): Stories that help convince even the most fussy five-year-old that food is fun!
- Helping Friends! (ages: 4+): A trio of stories that highlights the importance of sticking up for friends and developing social and emotional skills together.
