Coming soon to Android is YouTube Kids, a kid-friendly app that provides only content that's safe for the eyes of a child. Developed as a response to the popularity of its social platform among youth, this video app puts a greater focus on stimulating visual content and education.

The app does away with a lot of the distractions of YouTube's site, including the comment section. Popular shows can be accessed within the a couple of clicks and even though there is a search function, it won't respond to content that's not age-appropriate. Another feature that parents will see value in is the timer, which helps to specify the maximum length of time that the YouTube Kids app should run. Satisfying both kids and parents, the release of this app will be most welcome.
