The YouTube Kids app is now available in Slovakia. It not only enables access to a unique content focused on teaching and entertainment, but allows them to search for videos in a safe environment. At the same time, parents can check which videos and channels their children can watch.

The app is available for download for both the Android and iOS systems.

Control over searched content

Thanks to the app, parents can now control which videos and channels will be available for their children, to avoid inappropriate content.

“The app was designed with regard to the children's audience, which corresponds with its easy and intuitive user interface,” reads the press report.

The content is divided in four categories: Broadcast, Music, Learning, and Explore.

If children cannot read and write, they can search for the content with their voice.

At the same time, parents can use Timer, which will automatically block access to the content after a certain time expires.

It is possible to set eight various children profiles, while parents can also choose which types of videos their children can search for. There are other tools for parent control, designed for both younger and older children.

“The YouTube Kids app is only one of the tools thanks to which Google helps families set rules in the digital world,” reads the press release.

Another function is Family Link, which enables parents to learn how much time their children spend using digital devices and on which apps.
