What's New

Introducing kid profiles and a new colorful and exciting look for all kids.

App Description

A world of learning and fun, made just for kids

We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs.

A safer online experience for kids


We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families.

Get the scoop on all the control features available to you:

KID PROFILES:
Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings.

BLOCKING:
Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles.

VIDEO REPORTING:
Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review.

SEARCH CONTROL:
Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience.

TIMER:
Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app.

WATCH HISTORY:
Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app.

WATCH ON TV:
Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs

Other important information:
Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your kid.

YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your kid may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads.
