Content selection on the YouTube Kids app
A very important and a brilliant feature on the YouTube Kids app is the ability to select channels, videos or collections of videos for your child to enjoy. There is an opportunity here to sit and discuss with your child the content that they’d like to watch. Are there particular themes or interests that they have, what types of YouTube Kids videos do they enjoy watching? Based on your conversation you can work through content selecting suitable channels and videos.
The YouTube Kid app also enables you to disable the ‘Search’ function. This will prevent younger viewers getting access to videos created for older viewers or to inappropriate, unsuitable videos that may have slipped through the filtering system. If you select specific content for your child only that content will be available. If you select an age category for your child only content from that age category will be available to your child. Most of these features require signing in to set up.
