California: During the Corona epidemic last year, many children around the world, especially children, turned to YouTube. Where they used educational, entertainment, and other videos.

But at the same time, parents have complained to YouTube that their children watch videos that are not suitable for them.

Although there is a YouTube Kids app for that, as children get older, they become YouTubers themselves, and their range of interests expands.

Even in this context, not every video is suitable for them. Because of this shortcoming, the YouTube administration has come up with new options.

Now, thanks to the new option, parents themselves can connect with their child’s YouTube activities and keep an eye on them. YouTube describes the details on its blog as follows:

“Last year, parents and experts from around the world commented on the video option for teens and even younger children.”

“That’s why we’re offering a beta service that will allow them to monitor their activity from a single Google Account’.

“This will allow parents to set content settings and video limits. Under this, parents will be able to give their opinion in the light of which the YouTube service will be further improved.”

Now with this option, parents will be able to choose one of the three primary levels.

1-Explore:

This option contains videos just above YouTube Kids for kids ages nine and up. These include vlogs, instructional videos, gaming, music, education, and more.

2-Explore more:

The age limit is 13 years or more, including live streams.

3-Most of YouTube:

This allows you to watch all videos, but not the only one’s subject to the 18-year limit. These include sensitive topics.

According to YouTube, children will not be able to buy the app because it is a common trend in developed countries. Parents, on the other hand, will have more control. These options can be further improved over time.
