A world of learning and fun, made just for kids

We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for children to explore the world through online video – from their favourite 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:

Create up to eight child profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations and settings.

Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids.

Make sure that you're in control of what your children watch and hand-pick the videos, channels and collections of channels that they can see.

Found a video or channel that you don't want your child to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your children's profiles.

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

Turn search on so that your children can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids.

Set up a timer to put limits on how long your children can use the app.

Keep tabs on what your children are watching in the app.

Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs.

Love it, just one problem...

Anonymous 9 year old

99.9 % of the time, it works, but occasionally it will not load any videos even if my internet is three bars. I know it is full because I have a wifi booster in my room. Also, sometimes it says I need to check if my internet is working, but it says three bars and it still won’t work. Number three, sometimes I am in the middle of watching a video and it just stops working and pauses. Then I tap the ‘play’ button and it just makes a noise and doesn’t work. Also I found my little 4 year old sister watching a video about vampire weddings and zombies. Other than that it’s great



Hi I’m just wondering what your plan was to get in and I will see if you have a minute or two if you’re up and if I don’t want you I can do that if I get to work tomorrow and then I’ll get to the office I can talk with my dad about the car I can do that I will get you some stuff if you’re still there if not you have fun I’ll see what you’re up for I love him so I don’t want him anymore I’ll see him in my room so he will see what you guys have done to do so he could see you

Needs some additions


This app works pretty well since the last update. But it needs some additional features to make it 5star. It needs a way to block certain channels (some channels are just complete junk), a way to choose what offline videos/content are being downloaded (instead of it being chosen at random) and a way to play “offline” or downloaded content only. The people who made this app have done a fantastic job so far, just hoping the updates keep rolling out :)
