Google released today a new service called YouTube Kids which is ‘a new family-friendly app that makes it easy for kids to explore a vast selection of videos on any topic.’ YouTube Kids features popular children’s programming, plus kid-friendly content from filmmakers, teachers, and creators all around the world. YouTube Kids apps are available for both Android and iOS.
This new app provides young learners with a variety of kids-appropriate channels and playlists including: Sesame Street, Thomas & Friends, and Dreamworks, online hits like Mother Goose Club, TuTiTu, and Super Simple Songs, plus anything else they’re into — music, gaming, science, crafts, and more.
YouTube Kids also provides parents with a set of interesting features to allow them to oversee how their kids are using the app. For instance there is a timer that parents can set to let their kids know when it’s time to stop watching. Watch the video below to learn more about YouTube Kids.
