Spotify Kids launches in the US, Canada and France to keep children busy during lockdown

  Spotify Kids launches in the US, Canada and France to keep children busy during lockdown A few months after the launch of a beta version, Spotify has officially rolled out its children's application, which is accessible to Spotify Family subscribers. Simply install it on a child's phone, then log in with the family account. Thereafter, the child can choose an avatar and surf an offer of music that is tailored to their age group. In this current period of lockdown and, for many, spring break, the new initiative could not come at a better time. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

In 2017, Spotify’s Safari web player vanished without any explanation. Users were forced to use another browser or the native Mac app. Now, just as mysteriously, Spotify has added Safari back to its list of approved browsers. After almost three years, loyal Safari users can finally listen to Spotify in the browser once again.

It’s always been a little strange that Spotify didn’t work in Safari. Even Google’s music service works fine with the browser. Of course, the public beta of Apple Music’s web player is also compatible.

Spotify made the change quietly and without any announcement. It was spotted by a Reddit user and reported by 9to5Mac. If the web player doesn’t automatically open, you can try Spotify’s recommended tips, like updating the browser or opening the web player in a private window.

Spotify's latest playlist tool creates a mix to match your workout .
While most of us aren’t going to the gym right now, that doesn’t mean workouts have been suspended entirely. You still need fresh tunes to keep you motivated at home or on the running trail. To help with that, Spotify has a new tool called Soundtrack Your Workout — the company’s latest quiz-based playlist builder. Like previous options for creating a mix, you answer a few questions and the website will offer you a collection of music according to your preferences. And with this version, you can also choose podcasts instead or have the site make you a blend of both.
