Spotify is improving its Premium for Family subscription to take account more for family dynamics.
Most importantly, the firm is adding an explicit content feature. If you’re on a streaming plan with children under 16 (or whatever threshold age you decide), the account holder can enable an explicit content filter on accounts used by the children. This means that only clean versions of songs would be available and songs with explicit themes would be screened out.
Here’s what else is coming:
- Family Mix: Families will get exclusive access to a personalized playlist packed with songs the whole family enjoys. Family Mix is updated regularly and you can control who is in each session to optimize your family’s favourite shared listening moments.
- Family Hub: Billing users can now manage their Family’s settings in one place, including adding or removing family members, keeping your home address up to date, and adjusting your parental controls.
- Six Accounts: Spotify Premium Family still provides six individual Spotify Premium accounts for family members living under one roof, meaning you’ll keep your own saved music and playlists.
Spotify says this update will roll out over the coming fall. It’s already landed in Ireland with other Premium regions to follow.
