This is Google’s first app directly targeted at the younger set. It presents a version of YouTube that’s free of all the violence, inappropriate langauge, and other weirdness that makes most school districts block it from their networks.
The app features clips of shows, music, and education videos that are kid-friendly. A lot of popular staples are here, like Sesame Street, Thomas & Friends, and Dreamworks videos. You (or your child) can search for a specific program. Just keep in mind often these are clips instead of full-length episodes.
However, the content is all pretty friendly for small children, so you don’t have to panic at what they might uncover.
To access the settings, a child must read a list of numbers and then type in the digits. From here you can set a time limit on watching and delete the search history.
