In addition to kids-friendly content, the YouTube Kids app is also designed to give parents better control over the things they want their kids to see, as well as also put a limit on the things their child is permitted to search on the app. They can also set a timer on how long they want their kids to use the app.
“YouTube Kids comes to India at a great time for millions of Indian families, as it provides children access to content that will enrich their lives and create new opportunities for learning”, Malik Ducard, YouTube’s Global Head of Family and Learning
