About Google Kids Space

On your Android tablet, you can get Google Kids Space, which helps kids discover, create, and grow. Kids can access apps, books, and videos that are recommended based on their ages and interests. They can also customize their experience by creating their own character.

App and book recommendations are reviewed by children’s education and media specialists. To ensure age-appropriate content, YouTube Kids uses automated filters, manual review, and feedback from parents.

Multiple children in a family can use Google Kids Space on a tablet that supports multiple users. Parents can create a user profile for each child , with their own special character, interests, and content.

Similarly, if your tablet supports multiple users, supervised children and adults can share a tablet with Kids Space by creating separate user profiles. This gives each user their own custom home screen, accounts, apps, settings, and more. Set up Google Kids Space.
