Audio-streaming service Spotify Technology SA has acquired Kinzen, a firm that helps in identifying harmful content.
Kinzen’s acquisition is part of Spotify’s efforts to deal with harmful content on its service.
Spotify saw a backlash earlier this year over “The Joe Rogan Experience,” in which the podcaster was accused of spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
Dublin-based Kinzen has been working with Spotify since 2020. Kinzen has expanded to include targeting misinformation, disinformaton and hate speech.
The deal’s terms were not disclosed
