With the new YouTube Kids app from Google, you can keep track of what your kids are watching. This is a parental control that makes sure you choose the right content for your kids and you don't get into inappropriate videos.

The environment of the application is adapted to children and from the beginning you will be welcomed by a colorful intro with various characters abounding in colors. Next, you need to choose basic app settings, such as the ability to search for content across kids / browse only pre-selected and approved channels, choose the time that children can spend on videos, or save history to see all of your content being overlooked.

All authorizations and profile creation must be called by the parent, who approves the actions and confirms them by calculating simple examples as a verification device. Videos are categorized as Sessions, Music, Learning, and Discovery. You also decide what content to display and, for example, flag videos you don't like.

Profile creation is intuitive and up to 8 new child profiles can be created, each with its own settings, featured videos, and preferences.
