YouTube Kids is introducing new features that will give parents greater control over the content their children can access while using the app.
With Sleep Mode, parents can set a designated off time and each day at the designated time, the app will "go to sleep" and not be accessible to kids during those hours.
Google announced late Wednesday it will give parents more control over the videos appearing in their account and on their device, by limiting the videos displayed to those reviewed by human being employees.
Jury Finds Bill Cosby Guilty of Aggravated Indecent Assault
The jury came back with guilty verdicts on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault Thursday in the trial of Bill Cosby . This jury began deliberating Wednesday around 11 a.m., and worked for more than 14 hours over two days to reach the verdict.
As far as what happens when sleep mode is activated, the app won't deliver notifications, kids won't be able to send or receive messages, and they won't be able to access the app's camera functionality, either. If they try to use the app, they'll see a message telling them that the app is in Sleep Mode and that they should come back later.
For giving more control to the parents, Facebook has recently launched kids messenger app. Facebook's Messenger app for Kids gives parents the control over who their kids talk to.
This new feature was requested by the parents themselves and is easy to use. Tap on the child's name, and then on "Sleep Mode" in the App Controls section. There is a special control panel available for the Kids app which allows the parents to add and remove contacts to chat with their Children.

What do you think of the idea of Messenger Kids in general? "In addition to all the work our teams are doing behind the scenes to make the experience the best it can be, we're also offering parents even more options to make the right choice for their family and for each child within their family". Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment.
