Find family-friendly content in Google Play

Google Play reviews apps for certain policy requirements, but developers can make changes to their apps anytime. It is important that parents review all information about an app before downloading to make sure that the app is appropriate for their child.

Find games or apps for kids

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Play Store Google Play.
  2. Tap Games, or Apps.
  3. For Movies & TV, tap Family.
  4. For Books, tap Children’s Books.

Tip: To prevent anyone who uses your device from downloading or purchasing mature content, set up parental controls.

What the “Teacher approved” badge means

Google consulted with academic experts to develop a framework for rating apps, and then worked with teachers across the US to rate them based on our framework.
Teachers only approve apps that are:
  • Age appropriate
  • Thoughtfully designed
  • Fun or inspiring
Teachers only rate apps for the age groups that they teach and they have all been vetted, trained, and evaluated before they become part of the program. Currently, the team is not hiring teachers outside of the program.
Note: Apps are updated regularly and teachers review apps on an ongoing basis. This means that apps that are teacher approved will change over time.

Age ranges for Movies & TV and Books

Movies & TV

Google Play assigns an age rating based on the movie or TV show's content rating.

On a movie or TV show, you may see: 

  • Ages: Specific age ranges based on the content rating, between 0 and 12 years old.
  • All ages: The content rating will show that the movie or tv show is suitable for all ages.

Books

Google Play assigns a star badge based on publisher-provided information like reading level.

Check an app's privacy policy

All apps and games in the Kids section have to include a link to their privacy policy at the bottom of the app details page.

We recommend that you review the privacy policy before downloading the app to learn how the app collects and uses personal information.

Report inappropriate content

We do our best to make sure family-friendly content meets Google Play’s heightened policy requirements.

If you find content that may be inappropriate for kids and families, let us know.
