The app can be only accessed by users who have purchased a premium Family subscription from Spotify. The content that appears in the app is curated by a team of editors, which the company claims are expert at curating content for kids.
The curated content will include audio/music from brands like Nickelodeon, Disney, Discovery Kids, Universal Pictures, Public Service in Sweden and BookBeat. BookBeat is a family and kids oriented audio streaming service.
