YouTube Introduces More Parental Controls For YouTube Kids

New You Tube Kids tools to help parents control content

Facebook wants children to take breaks from Messenger Kids

The app comes with total parents control feature so parents can setup things for their Children. There is a special control panel available for the Kids app which allows the parents to add and remove contacts to chat with their Children. Now, Messenger Kids is getting a new feature called a "Sleep mode".

With sleep mode, parents can set a designated time for the Messenger Kids app to shut down and remain inaccessible during this period.

Google announced late Wednesday it will give parents more control over the videos appearing in their account and on their device, by limiting the videos displayed to those reviewed by human being employees.

According to YouTube, "Parents know better than anyone what they want their children to watch". Once you set the limits, the child will not be able to use the app during those hours. But some child development experts have called for Facebook to pull it, saying it should not be making apps for kids.

The Google-owned app said in a blog post on Wednesday that parents would also have the option to restrict video recommendations to channels that have been "verified" by YouTube Kids, avoiding the broader sea of content that the app pulls from the main YouTube site through algorithms and other automated processes. Even if the kid tries to open the app while it in "sleep mode", a message will pop up telling him/her to come back later. The social networking giant has no intention of pulling the plug on what is a window into the Facebook world for those yet to reach the ripe old age of 13.

Messenger Kids application is absolutely for free and you can download the app for both, iOS and Android platform for free. Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment.
