Google Launches New YouTube App For Kids

Google Launches New YouTube App For Kids.

The YouTube Kids app is designed for curious little minds to dive into a world of discovery, learning, and entertainment. This free app is easy to use and packed full of age-appropriate videos, channels and playlists. YouTube Kids features popular children’s programming, plus kid-friendly content from filmmakers, teachers, and creators all around the world.

The first Google product built from the ground up with little ones in mind. The app makes it safer and easier for children to find videos on topics they want to explore, and is available for free on Google Play and the App Store. YouTube Kids is currently available in the U.S. only.

Now Google is entering into the kids market. According to report, watching the video from Internet is increased by 87 percent. 

Parental controls:
Google realize every family is different, so built options into the app that help you control the experience for your kids:

Let the app be the bad guy with a built-in timer that lets you limit kids’ screen time. The app alerts your child when the session is over, so you don’t have to. (You’re welcome. ;) )
Sound settings: Sometimes you need a little peace and quiet! You have an option to turn off background music and sound effects, so your kids can keep watching while you catch a breather.

Search settings:
If you’d rather limit your children to just the pre-selected videos available on the home screen, you can turn off search.

Product feedback:
Our goal is to improve YouTube Kids all the time, so we’ve included a space for you to give us your feedback.
