Social messaging app WhatsApp has rolled out a series of features in order to keep the end user interested. Let’s get right into it…
YouTube Kids — a child-friendly, filtered app — has been updated to include individual profiles that adapt to a child’s age.
The company has announced that parents will now be able to create up to eight separate profiles for their children. The children can then set up passcodes for their profiles to avoid sibling interference. Parents will be able to override these security settings.
YouTube requires the child’s name and birthday for their profiles, and says it will adapt the look of its app to fit the age group.
“Younger kids will get less text, while older kids will get more content on the home screens,” the company wrote in a statement.
Memeburn tested the app on an Android smartphone and, while the multiple profiles feature was live, the only noticeable difference for an eight-year-old and a two-year-old was content.
The update is seemingly limited to Android, as a test on iOS revealed none of the latest features. It is live in 37 countries, South Africa included. You can check the full list here.
