YouTube Has Introduced Amazing Feature For Parents, Supervised Experiences, which will help children access content.
In a blog post, YouTube said the new filters would help parents limit children to content according to their age.
This program is being introduced for children surfing outside the YouTube Kids app, ie in the main app.
The program is currently in beta and will be rolled out regularly in the coming months.
In this program, parents will be able to choose from 3 types of restrictions, which will determine what kind of content a child will be able to access on their account.
There is an Explorer level that the company says is suitable for children ages 9 and up.
The second level is called Explore Moore which is 13 years or more and the third is Most of YouTube.
In the United States and other countries, people over the age of 13 will be able to supervise their YouTube accounts themselves.
There will be more diversity at the Explore More level, while most of YouTube will include sensitive topics.
The program will rely on user input, human review, and machine learning, and the company acknowledges that this is not perfect and that mistakes can be made.
That is, parents need to be careful instead of relying entirely on it.
However, this program will be great for parents whose children do not like the Kids app.
