Yoto Player is a screen-free audio player designed for children. It uses physical cards that contain stories, music, and activities that children can listen to by inserting them into the player. It's a safe and interactive way for kids to enjoy audio content without the need for a screen.

Spotify is a top-rated music service that provides many genres of tracks, podcasts, and audiobooks. Therefore, many parents collect multiple educational audio files on Spotify and want to upload them to the Yoto Player for their kids.

Here, we'd like to introduce two ways to add Spotify to Yoto and play Spotify on Yoto Player without premium.

As we know, Spotify songs are protected in a special OGG Vorbis format. In this case, you'd better download Spotify to MP3, AAC, and M4A files that are supported by Yoto. And AudFun Spotify Music Converter is a great shot.

The AudFun Music Converter for Spotify is dedicated to downloading and converting Spotify songs, albums, playlists, audiobooks, and Spotify podcasts to MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, M4A, and M4B without Spotify Premium.

Also, it retains 100% original audio quality and full ID3 tags, which enables you to play Spotify music on Yoto Mini Player or Yoto Original Player without any metadata info loss.
