As a report had indicated last week, Google has gone ahead and unveiled a YouTube app for kids called YouTube Kids. Its the first product that Google has built from the ground up for kids that is aimed at making it safer and easier for your little ones to browse and watch videos on topics they want.
The app has been designed keeping kids in mind and comes with large images, bold icons and bigger buttons to allow for easier navigation. Additionally, it features voice control, just in case your child prefers searching for videos by voice commands rather than typing on the search bar.
YouTube Kids only provides access to four different categories of videos that are suited for childrens: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore. It will contain content from DreamWorks TV, Jim Henson TV, Talking Tom and Friends and more with contents from more providers coming soon.
The app features handy parental control options like built-in timer to limit the screen on time, sound settings that will allow parents to turn off the background music, the ability to completely turn off search and more.
YouTube Kids app is available for download for free in the United States on the Google Play Store. The app is also available for download on the iOS App Store, and will soon be available on Kurio and nabi kids tablets.
