Today Google announced that they have made several improvements to the popular YouTube Kids app. Now parents can create profiles for each kid allowing different parental control levels on each profile.
“We’re looking at ways to build an even better experience for families. Coming soon, we’ll give parents the option to bring more content to the app experience. Our team is working to identify the most relevant content categories for tweens to make the app even more awesome.” Google said in a statement sent to Cord Cutters News.
Here are all of the new features:
- Kid profiles to customize your kids’ experience: Now you can create a profile for each of your kids. Even better, kid profiles work across all different devices!
- App design tailored to your kid’s age: When you enter a date of birth on the kid profile, YouTube Kids changes the way the app looks. Younger kids will get less text, while older kids will get more content on the home screens.
- A new setup process: The new app parent setup process will give you detailed information to help you make the right choices for your family before your kids use the app.
- Passcode for kids: Kids can set a secret passcode to get into their profile (and keep their brother or sister out). Don’t worry, you can always override their passcode.
