Google has announced a new feature for Android called Family Link and it is designed to let you manage your children’s Android devices.
Family link lets you create an account for your child and then you can manage what they are able to do on their devices.
The devices we carry every day open up a world of information for us to explore, sparking our curiosity and creativity. But when it comes to our kids using those same devices, it’s tricky. We want them to explore and be inspired as they embark on their digital adventure, but every family feels differently about what their kids should and shouldn’t be able to do on their device. That’s why we developed the Family Link app. When your child is ready for their first Android device, Family Link lets you create a Google Account for them, which is like your own account, and also helps you set certain digital ground rules that work for your family – like managing the apps your kid can use, keeping an eye on screen time, and setting a bedtime on your kid’s device.
You can manage things like the apps your children use, you can also monitor how much they are using a device and also set times like bedtime when they cannot use their device.
You can find our more details about Family Link over at Google at the link below, you will need an Android Nougat device to use the software.
