What is YouTube Kids?

YouTube Kids is a filtered version of YouTube, a user-generated video sharing platform, which allows kids to discover and watch videos. The YouTube Kids app lets parents and carers sign in and create up to 8 profiles for children, each with their own content, video recommendations and settings. Parents can manually approve videos for their kids to watch, approve collections of videos, block certain videos, set screen time limits and review what their kids have been watching. A YouTube Premium subscription removes paid advertisements from YouTube and allows videos to be downloaded for offline viewing.
