YouTube Kids for Android TV

YouTube on Android TV doesn’t have a parental control feature or any other limitations to kids’ profiles. For this specific purpose, Google launched a separate service called YouTube Kids. In the YouTube Kids app, you will get only the content that is appropriate for kids. There will be no adult content in the YouTube Kids app. Like the YouTube app, the YouTube Kids app is also available for Android TV and Android TV Box.
