Youtube Kids App is released both on Appstore and Google Play for free! This app helps us to remove advertisement, side bars and unwanted/not appropriate videos for kids as well. The app is clean with big buttons and it has very easy scrolling to use with all age appropriate channels and playlists. The playlists include great channels such as Sesame Street, Thomas & Friends, and Dreamworks, online hits like Mother Goose Club, TuTiTu, and Super Simple Songs. Parents can also turn off search for an even more contained experience and they can set the built-in timer to let your kids know when it’s time to stop watching. The app puts these settings behind a grown-ups-only lock, out of kids’ reach as well.
I think this app will be a great resource for teachers, content creators and parents as well! This is certainly the app that I would recommend my parents who want to find kid friendly and kid related videos! Thank you Youtube!
