Kids Get YouTube!

YouTube For Kids Launches!

For a long time, there have been calls for a YouTube just for kids, well now there is but only for the kids in the US at the moment! Hopefully, this will change as the idea becomes more popular. The channel is accessed through an app, that comes with some interesting features and functions to help parents relax about what the kids are watching on YouTube. There is a timer that limits the amount of viewing can be had and there are sound settings too so that the whole world does not have hear what they are watching. For those parents who are worried about available content there is a search feature that only allows the user to search selected videos.

Today, we’re introducing the YouTube Kids app, 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 in the U.S.

YouTube for kids has already launched in the US with apps available to download for free from Google Play for Android and iTunes for iOS devices.
