YouTube launched its much rumored ad-free subscription service in the summer last year. Aside from removing all advertisements the service offers subscribers access to premium content as well as some features that are not available to every other YouTube user. A year after launching the subscription service, YouTube has now integrated it with YouTube Kids, an app that provides curated video content for children.
YouTube Kids is a great app for parents who want to have their children access all of the suitable content that’s available on the world’s largest video streaming website without being concerned about them venturing into the more adult parts of YouTube.
One of the biggest features that a Red subscription offers is the ability to download videos for offline viewing. It’s a feature that YouTube users have demanded for a very long time and the company decided to hide it behind Red’s paywall.
This means that parents who subscribe to YouTube Red can now download videos which their kids can view offline, this will certainly come in handy on those long drives when the kids tend to get restless in the back seat.
YouTube Kids now works with YouTube Red in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. To get started parents first need to download the YouTube Kids app and a subscription to YouTube Red. All that’s left to do then is to sign into the subscription account from the parental control menu of the Kids app.
