YouTube Kids APK is the official version for kids of Google's famous online video platform. Given that YouTube is the second most visited website in the world (only behind Google's own search engine), it is reasonable that an alternative app with children's content has been created in order to offer an improved experience to children and young people.

YouTube Kids was created with the idea of providing a more controlled environment for kids to navigate on their own in an easy and fun way.

A video app designed for the little ones

Although all the contents of this app are also available on YouTube, downloading YouTube Kids for free is like entering a world apart. Starting from a simpler design and elaborate with brighter colors to attract the attention of the little ones, this app has the following outstanding features:

  • Four categories of videos: Shows, Music, Explore, and Games.
  • Possibility to adapt the contents by age range or to approve them manually.
  • Simplified interface with limited tools that makes it easy for children themselves to explore the platform.
  • Timer to limit the time you use the app.
  • Parental control features, such as history to check played videos and a button to block entire videos or channels.
  • Compatible with Chromecast.
  • Autoplay function.
  • Ability to create different profiles for multiple users.

Therefore, if your children ask for your mobile phone to watch videos on YouTube, try to download YouTube Kids Android beforehand to have peace of mind that all the content is safe and age-appropriate. In addition, advertising is much more limited than in the general app, a detail to be appreciated.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 5.0.
