Description

A world of learning and fun, made just for kids We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs. A safer online experience for kids We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families. Get the scoop on all the control features available to you: KID PROFILES: Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. CHANNEL COLLECTIONS: Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids. BLOCKING: Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles. VIDEO REPORTING: Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review. SEARCH CONTROL: Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids. TIMER: Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app. WATCH HISTORY: Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app. WATCH ON TV: Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs For more information, visit kids.youtube.com. Other important information: Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your kid. YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your kid may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads.

  • Needs a playlist feature

    My little one spends an hour or two per day on this app and he absolutely loves it. It’s easy to navigate to and through on the iPad. He would watch all day and night if I let him. He has no complaints. I however have two major ones as a parent. The biggest is that I cannot create a custom playlist of videos for him to watch myself. The channel selection option was a fail from the start—none of the channels featured the animated preschool content my son loves to watch. So, I have to trust YouTube’s algorithms to decide what content is presented to my son, instead of being able to put on Bob The Train for him. I can search for Bob The Train but the algorithm populates other videos which my son navigates to. And that leads me to my second major complaint... Non-English language videos constantly populate this app for my son. There is no way to select videos that are in English only. You can block videos or even whole channels that are in other languages but only one at a tome as they play and annoyingly you have to enter the passcode each time which I do not understand. If my own child wanted to block a video or channel—let him!! But back to the other languages—Spanish, French, Russian, Portuguese are all great but I don’t know what these videos are saying and therefore can trust or screen then. It’s annoying. If these two things were fixed I would give the app 5 stars, even though the content is a little ABC heavy and I wish there was more early literacy content available, like Bob the Train.

    I don’t want my toddler to get confused with watching videos in Russian, Japanese, Portuguese...etc. It’s one thing if we were teaching her another language, but we’re not, and if we were it would be 1 other language, not 20. Please add an option to select the languages you want to play and another to block those horrific channels that keep playing the same awful song over and over again. Parents need their sanity.
