Spotify launches parental control for family plans; Chrome and Ulysses are updated

Recently, apps Spotify, Google Chrome and Ulysses for iOS have been updated with important news and improvements.

Let's see what such updates brought back?


The popular platform of streaming Swedish music company has released a new exclusive parental control feature for family plan users, allowing caregivers to be able to restrict music to their children's explicit content.

For some reason, however, the option is currently available only to users in Ireland, as disclosed by 9to5Mac. According to the company, the resource will be expanded to other countries / regions later this year, but she did not explain the reason for the fractional distribution.

Despite the novelty, family membership continues to offer each member their own account (with their playlists, library, and recommendations), but the person managing the plan can enable explicit content filtering for any of the linked accounts.
