How does it Work?


A video app made just for kids YouTube Kids was created to give kids a more contained environment filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness. Parents and caregivers can guide the journey as your kids discover new and exciting interests along the way. Learn more at youtube.com/kids A safer online experience for kids We work hard to keep the videos on YouTube Kids family-friendly and use a mix of automated filters built by our engineering teams, human review, and feedback from parents to protect our youngest users online. 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. Customize your child’s experience with Parental Controls Limit screen time: Set a time limit for how long your kids can watch and help encourage their transition from watching to doing. Keep up with what they watch: Simply check the watch it again page and you’ll always know what they’ve watched and the newest interests they’re exploring. Blocking: Don’t like a video? Block the video or whole channel, and never see it again. Flagging: You can always alert us to inappropriate content by flagging a video for review. Flagged videos are reviewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Create individual experiences as unique as your kids Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. Choose from “Approved Content Only” mode or select an age category that fits your child, “Preschool”, “Younger”, or “Older”. Select the “Approved Content Only” mode if you want to handpick the videos, channels and/or collections that you’ve approved your child to watch. In this mode, kids won’t be able to search for videos. The “Preschool” Mode designed for kids 4 and under curates videos that promote creativity, playfulness, learning, and exploration. The “Younger” Mode allows kids 5-7 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics including songs, cartoons, and crafts. While our “Older” Mode gives kids 8 and up the chance to search and explore additional content such as popular music and gaming videos for kids. All kinds of videos for all kinds of kids Our library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness.

  • Love! But a little babyish


    By actress 🎭🎬
    I love this app! I'm 12 years old and still use this! I love how they are opening up about way more extreme topics! But.............(and yes a but) they say a couple bad words but that's ok! I also like how they have preschool elementary or older kid categories that you can choose! So if you are a mother or father with your little kid, bad words and extreme topics won't pop up on it! I recommend this app for all ages! Especially if you are in middle school cause there are lots of videos that will help you will the struggles of that age! They sure did help me! Great app! Oh and continue bringing back more old videos! 😋😋🤓😜😒🤓🤗 also they should make something called yt tweens and teens! We need that! This app is a tad bit babyish! There is not many vids for my age group! There are some tho
  • Low security standard


    By A.J. Darrah
    I’ve had the app before but we’ve had to delete it because my parents said that even if they delete all of the bad videos or block them it’s not working because people are hacking in and putting in inappropriate and scary videos for children. And so we just feel like this app needs to have a higher security standard and then I think the app would be a little bit more Secure for everyone. but it’s at Lowe security standards right now and there just not protective of what they have on the app. and that is very disappointing and some of my friends said that they had had to delete the app because the same thing has been happening to them and their parents I told them the same thing! If you’re going to have this app be careful of The low security and dad videos. Oh and all the mothers out there be careful of what your kids watch too! 🙂
  • GET THIS APP


    By Blondy cloudacorn cutiepie
    I have had this app for 3 YEARS. TRUST ME THIS APP IS AWESOMENESS ALL IN 1. This app makes my day. I would like to see more of graces channel, my froggy stuff, Millie inbetween, And Kelli Maple (MY FAVORITE!!!) GET THIS APP. IT IS THE BEST. The only request I have is that I want to be able to watch vids with friends. Like you can invite friends to watch let’s say... a cat vid with you. You could tap A button called add invite to video and it would show you a list of your contacts and you can invite who you want if you’re being invited you can except or deny it will tell you what video it is playing if you get an invite. Once there’s more than one person on it you and the other people will be able to type in a chat. Please developer add this feature. Other then that... GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Well it’s ok but..


    By havsjdvsiavasbbekshab
    Ok I got banned from regular YT. So my mom made me and my sister watch YT kids for a change. It’s not the worst thing but it’s definitely not the best. One thing that bugs me is that there is this YTer names lotdotzip, and my sister loves him. So I decided to watch him to but then I have none of the same videos as her. I don’t know if it’s the app or just my phone. But I still am a bit upset. Another reason why I think this is not the best is because it takes out videos a lot. I was watching grace’s world and there was a rapster video. So I watched it. But then the next day, they took it away. I was really upset on that. I also would recommend some other YTers(oh by the way YT means YouTub). I still know some that are kid friendly that you could consider adding. So like I said it’s not the worst but it’s definitely not the best. Creators, I would love if u could fix these! Thank you.
  • Yes but so annoying


    By brvhdbujkjgeshikknfdvy
    This is a very good app but I wish that it would not made the Music annoying now I’m not saying this is not a bad app it’s just that the songs get annoying after hearing it 1000 times now don’t get me wrong there is a few more mistakes I wish it was able to let you monitor what they watch but I think it’s a very good app just need a little bit more work about the music the music when you first logged into it or go into it the music starts playing and when you hear your children looking through the things in the videos and that music just keeps going and never stops it is it’s not sound that I want to hear all the time but other than that and the monitoring I believe that it is very good app especially for kids😘😘😘🤣
  • ...This is just dumb


    By SaltEBella
    (don’t reply please.) Where has the Gacha Life, Nightcore Songs, Gachaverse and Gacha Studios all gone? Look, I’m 12 and the videos on here are getting kind of old. I even put it on the, What you claim it to be “Older Kids Setting” and i’m STILL getting videos like “Mickey Mouse Toy Unboxing” and “Ryan’s Toy Review” and “Mickey Mouse Slime”! For real, you have ONE Video by my favorite channel Dollightful which i’ve already seen an insane amount of times. Some Suggestions i have to make this app worth our time: -Fix the “Older Kids Setting” and add more quality content. For real, One Dollightful video and NO videos with apps by the developer Lunime? Garbage. -Fix the stupid 30 second intro Literally nobody cares about a blob of slime being slingshotted through the ‘World of YTK’ and landing on a dance floor with its other very strange looking friends. -Add more (clean)music Seriously No music?! Just piano/guitar covers of music!? Ridiculous. -Make the search bar useful for once. You literally can’t search for anything specific without getting a parachuteing cat that says “Try Searching For Something Else!” Thanks for reading this review and please add some of these suggestions when the developers aren’t doing a crapworthy job of this app ☺️ ~SaltEBella (p.s, don’t reply because i know i’ll be disappointed. And don’t reply even if you think i won’t be disappointed! 😄
  • Used to be better


    By Flipside0983
    When I first downloaded this for my son the app in itself was a lot easier to maintain and control. I suppose some changes after recent updates does not allow the user to clear the browsing cache anymore. I’ve gone through the settings over and over but can’t seem to find that option anymore. While my son used to watch educational, entertaining or kid friendly videos now there is nothing but homemade crap videos of mostly adults “reviewing” toys or doing some other nonsense. Since the last update I’ve had to block probably 30+ channels from the lite nonsense that comes up on the app now since I am unable to clear the cache. Please add this feature back. I really do enjoy the app for my son but having to block all the foreign channels so he doesn’t get confused and the other nonsensical channels is getting a little overwhelming.
  • Perfect app, but 1 thing


    By VICTORIA123_123
    I personally think the YT Kids app is an amazing app. It allows children to watch what they want without the parent worrying about their children watching something inappropriate. I think this is a really good app, but there is one thing. Some of the channels have multiple videos up, but it always ends up saying something like “Oops this video isn’t available. Try another one”. They usually have the video up, but it’s as if the app is trying to play the video. An example of a channel in which this happens is “ItsFunneh”. I would really appreciate it if you guys took a quick look at this and try your best to fix it. Besides this one problem, I think this app is very nice and helps in many ways. Keep up the good work!
  • Good App But needs more kid friendly content


    By UGHHhhhhhhhHhHhHhhHhHhHh hello
    My 2 year old watches this app all the time and it is an amazing app but sometimes there’s content that is not what I’d like my child to watch. Sometimes I come across my child watching videos of good trucks shooting the bad trucks but my child does not understand that the good guys are getting the bad guys and most children can not read the words good or bad at the ages 1,2,3,and 4. Most videos on this app are perfectly fine for my kid to watch but sometimes I get concerned if I see kids stealing things from other kids. I highly recommend this app, I would just look out for videos that some parents would not like their child to be watching.
  • Ugh!!!!


    By lazysunday90
    Let me first say am a kid and I get it parents want kids to be safe on the internet but really really!!!! I hate this app so much for starters you can’t watch full episodes for example let’s say you’re on a road trip and you want to see a full episode of Adventure time you click into the app look it up but the only thing you’re going to see are some clips I don’t want clips darn it!!! Secondly Fnaf is aloud... Do I even have to say it? Do I?! Does anyone over there at google know what fnaf is about?!!! No? Ok I’ll explain it! To put it this way... fnaf is a horror game basically this man killed children stuffed them into robots and now they Hunt the pizzeria where they were killed Now tell me google dose that even sound remotely kid friendly!? Lastly I would like to talk about the settings. Okay so when you download the app it asks you what type of videos the app should play (am 11) but when you pick all ages it still has abc 123 videos on it! So in the next update could you add a 10-12 setting? It would help us older kids who have to be with this app Thanks for reading sorry it’s so long!
