YouTube Kids Has Been Redesigned to Help Parents Choose Age-Appropriate Content

Parents (understandably) don’t want their kids to watch nonsense or disturbing cartoons . The updated YouTube Kids gives them more control.

First, you can now create multiple profiles for your kids using your Google account as administrator. Forget about teaching your youth to share and customize each one with their own account.

The new redesign adds some advanced functionality to the app’s customization process, making it easier for parents to determine what content is right for their child. During setup, you can turn off kids’ search, which limits the videos available to those shown on the home screen or recommended by the app. You can set a password to prevent advanced viewers from changing certain settings that you have enabled (or disabled).

YouTube Kids reiterates that your kids might stumble upon videos that you think are age-appropriate , so you need to keep an eye on what they watch. However, you can block the display of videos or channels in the app.

Other feature changes make it easier for kids to watch videos they really understand. Younger viewers will see less text in their interface, while older users will see more text to help them navigate, as well as a wider selection of content to choose from. The redesign should start today.
