YouTube has announced that it is launching a new supervised account for children, this is designed to be for kids who are a bit old to be using the YouTube Kids feature, but too young to use the full YouTube.
There will be three settings, Explore which is designed for content from ages 9+, Explore more for ages 13+ and Most of YouTube which is basically everything excluding age restricted content.
We know that every parent has a different parenting style and that every child is unique and reaches different developmental stages at different times. That’s why we’ll give parents the ability to choose from 3 different content settings on YouTube.
- Explore: For children ready to move on from YouTube Kids and explore content on YouTube, this setting will feature a broad range of videos generally suitable for viewers ages 9+, including vlogs, tutorials, gaming videos, music clips, news, educational content and more.
- Explore More: With content generally suitable for viewers ages 13+, this setting will include an even larger set of videos, and also live streams in the same categories as “Explore.”
- Most of YouTube: This setting will contain almost all videos on YouTube, except for age-restricted content, and it includes sensitive topics that may only be appropriate for older teens.
