And now for something we’ve all been waiting for…YouTube now offers an app for watching family-friendly videos without having to sort through the stuff that isn’t okay for kids to see.
The YouTube Kids app is available for Android and for iOS. The app allows children to browse channels and playlists in four categories: Shows, Music, Learning, and Explore. The app has built-in controls that allow parents to set limits how much time their children can spend watching videos. Parents can turn off the search function if they want to limit their children to just the videos in a playlist. Background sounds can be turned off by parents too.
