Google’s Family Link was launched in the US back in March, it then landed in Canada, Australia and other countries and now Google is also launching the feature in Europe.
Family Link has now been expanded to 27 new countries in Europe, these include Ireland, Italy, Austria, France, Germany and more.
The feature allows you to create a Google account for your child and then manage the account for them until they are old enough to manage it themselves, depending on age limits in each country.
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.
Here’s how it works: First, your kid will need a new device that runs Android Nougat (7.0)* or higher. Then, download Family Link onto your device and create a Google Account for them through the app.
Google are expected to expand their Family Link feature to more countries soon, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.Filed Under: Android News, Technology News
