Enhanced controls will allow parents to handpick videos among a host of new features, but campaigners say YouTube must do more
Google is updating its YouTube Kids app to improve the control over the videos and channels that can be watched by children.
YouTube Kids is a separate app for smartphones and tablets that provides access to a subset of the videos available on the main site. There have been 70bn video views since the app, which is used by 11m families, launched in 2015. In the app’s biggest change yet, Google is giving parents much greater control over what their children can find and watch.
