Apple wants to hand out podcast recordings to children

Apple makes it easy for parents to find podcasts for their kids to listen to.

The company works with Common Sense Media, a nonprofit that specializes in age-specific content reviews, to organize groups to appear on Apple podcasts in the US and online.

The first four topics relate to:

  •     Children know better than anyone: Popular kids' programs show that children can choose for themselves.
  •     Story Time: The story shows that it takes the child into a fictional world.
  •     Latest: the mysterious stories and action-packed dramas that kids of all ages will never want to stop hearing about.
  •     Media Choice Common Sense: The Most Fun and Favorable Family Favorite.

Podcasts are coming from Tinkercast, US Public Media, WNYC Studios, Rebel Girls, Nickelodeon, and more, while Common Sense Media offers advice for ages.

The collection is updated monthly and includes new topics related to important historical and cultural moments, such as: b. Women's History Month or Back to School.

Starting today, you should see these viewing suggestions in the Apple Podcasts Home Library and then use them from the Browse tab.

As the sound noise increases, podcasts for kids are getting more and more popular and parents are looking for ways to entertain their kids without having to rely on the screen.

The Common Sense Media Foundation has already published podcast recommendations. However, this new partnership with Apple is the largest commitment ever to audio software.

In the past year, producers of children's podcasts have seen an increase in listeners at the start of the pandemic.

A company called Gen-Z Media said its "Six Minute Plan" could be downloaded about 2 million times a month, but during the pandemic, the program reached 3 million downloads.

Other companies like Spotify and Amazon put certified kids' content into separate apps and experiences.

Apple appears to feel that this is not currently required, and parents can rely on thematic groups to monitor the lives of their children.
