YouTube Kids app gets three new options for better customization

The first new option will see the creation of trusted channels with trusted partners on a variety of subjects, making it easier for parents to select only the channel collections and topics they want their kids to access. But its official terms of agreement are largely ignored by tens of millions of children and their families who don't bother downloading the under-13 app. The third and final feature is "Improved search-off control for an even more contained experience" where parents can turn off the search feature in the app, limiting the app experience to channels that have been verified by the YouTube Kids team. This means that search off will not include recommendations from the broader YouTube Kids corpus.

YouTube is finally giving parents that use its "Kids" app more control over the videos their little ones can stream.

YouTube remains under fire for disturbing content made available in the Suggested Videos area of its YouTube Kids app, and for collecting data on young children.

Josh Golin, executive director of the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, saw the move as broadly positive, but said that more parental controls do not absolve Google of its responsibility to keep inappropriate content out of the YouTube Kids app.

If we talk about the camera , it has a dual rear camera of 13 MP with OmniVision sensor and a 5 MP with depth sensing sensor. The SD 636 has Kryo custom-CPU which was previously seen only on the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series.

Like everything else related to Google, YouTube uses algorithms and machine learning to automate the process of weeding out inappropriate content. "The majority of these 8 million videos were mostly spam or people attempting to upload adult content - and represent a fraction of a percent of YouTube's total views during this time period", the post reads. It's a side effect of the way YouTube Kids finds its videos.

The flag-the-video-later system has created some problems for the service. While YouTube has yet to formally respond, complaints such as this also bring to light potential COPPA loopholes that could give the likes of YouTube a free pass. The feature is called "Collections by trusted partners and YouTube Kids". These videos have included Spiderman urinating on Frozen's Elsa, Peppa Pig drinking bleach, and Micky Mouse getting run over by a auto.

Even as YouTube takes stronger measures to enhance its YouTube Kids app, the service itself continues to come under fire for endangering minors.
