Youtube for kids?
 
"Hey Guys" .. As they say in the kids videos..

Do you know a way for kids (10 / 7) to have their own google account to watch youtube on MAC?
Mine love the crap on there and they want to 'like' and 'subscribe' and comment etc,, They watch on a MAC or iPad or on the main TV via Swisscom box..

I setup a kids account linked to my account but it won't allow youtube on Safari or on the Swisscom box. From what I read kids youtube is only available on an Android device ?? WTF??

Do you know a way?

It is not only on an android device, but youtube kids is only to be used through the app. If you use youtube in your browser it is a general access method outside the app.

You can simply install it on the iPad using the app, as for PC/Mac you have to install an android or iOS app player and run the app in there. (personally I would not go that far)

This is what we do. Easy peasy, I simply used my google account to set it. But we are a Mac family.

Thanks people .. So it's just the Youtube kids app, on iPad or iPhone . Suppose on the apple TV too?

Does it allow them to make videos? I was gonna let them do that and just keep them private.. Obviously there are many kid youtube stars.


Edit : Still not getting this .. Installed the app on apple TV .. Linked to my account.. But where does their account come into it? I set up their own google account.

My kids don’t have a google account, so I can’t really help you there. My daughter is linked to my iCloud account through family sharing. This way she can use my own iPhone but I can keep an eye on what she’s doing there.

Yeah mine have their own iPhones with family stuff, screen time, restrictions on certain apps etc.. That all works fine..

Just youtube i don't get. Watching it logged out they can't interact, like subscribe to the channels they like.. They used it on my login recently and subscribed to everything and i got all the emails and recommendations etc..

On apple TV - Sign in sends me to an activate page, on my MAC i go there, enter a code, my google account and it just opens kids youtube on the mac .. Doesn't allow sign in on their account on the TV.. Arrggghhhh

I'm not worried about content, we know what they're watching, we can normally hear it!

I think the answer is login on the wife's account :)
