Spotify rolls out new storytelling podcast feature
In other news, Spotify recently launched a new storytelling podcast feature that will attract kids to the music-streaming app. The app has partnered with Tulika Publishers, an Indian publishing house, and launched the service called Talking Tales from Tulika. The story-telling podcasts will be produced by Asiaville and will be available to stream in three languages for now. These are English, Hindi, and Tamil.
The new storytelling podcasts for kids cover many themes from friendship to more mature topics that are essential to building good morale in kids as they grow up. While children are always encouraged to read more, the new Spotify podcasts share a new way of keeping kids entertained via a method that may not seem as boring as reading.
Some of the stories included in the new feature are The Gajapati Kulapati Series, based on the popular Tulika characters; Food Fun, with stories that revolve around food and sweets, and Helping Friends, based on values like friendship, confidence, problem-solving and more.
