Controls what your child can and can not watch YouTube Kids, is getting much easier.
YouTube promised in April to add a feature that lets parents choose each video and channel their children have access to in the app. Now the whitening function has finally come. It is currently limited to Android but comes to iOS ever "soon," said YouTube.
To enable it, open settings, go to the child's profile and under "Content Level" select only "Authorized Content." From there you can browse content and press the "+" button to approve a video, channel, or collection of channels you're looking forward to.
Once you've enabled the feature, your child will only be able to view videos you have approved and can not search for content on your own.
Google announced earlier age-specific profiles for YouTube Kids users, but it was not possible for parents to approve and manage available content directly. [1
The "younger" version, which is more limited and suitable for children in preschool and primary school, is the default setting. Parents can switch between "younger", "older" and "approved content" at any time. The new "older" experience is only available in the US at this point, but YouTube plans to offer it globally in the future.
"We work hard to make videos in the family-friendly app, but no system is perfect." YouTube Kids Product Director James Beser wrote in a blog post. "It's always possible that a parent can find something they do not want the child to look at in" younger "or" older "experiences. In this case, we ask that parents block and flag the video for review by our team. Kids better for all. "
