This was totally unexpected, we’ve all been wishing for more (and better) parental controls on YouTube for years. The main YouTube service is supposedly for users 13+ and yet YouTube Kids is for very young children, which leaves a pretty big age gap in the middle.
Called a ‘supervised experience’, YouTube state these new features are available for families with children under 13, which is a little confusing:
Explore – videos suitable for children 9+
Explore more – suitable for children 13+
Most of YouTube – almost everything on YouTube except videos marked as 18+ (this is the current Restricted Mode on YouTube).
