YouTube released its new child-friendly app Monday called YouTube Kids on the App Store and Google Play.
The new free app provides content suitable for kids, allowing them to play games and watch videos without parents worrying that they are being exposed to adult material.
The app features parental controls to give moms and dads peace of mind if they leave their children to play or watch on their phones or tablets. There is a timer that will limit the child’s screen time and features no comment section to prevent profanity.
Content on YouTube Kids is divided into four categories: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore. The app includes YouTube video series on channels from DreamWorks TV, Jim Henson TV and Mother Goose Club. There is also noted favorites like Sesame Street, Barney & Friends and Thomas & Friends.
