Search in YouTube Kids
Your child can search for videos, by using the magnifying glass in the upper corner of the app and typing in their query. To do a voice search, your child can tap the microphone icon on the search page and speak the query.
Videos in search results are selected by our algorithm without human review. We’ve taken a number of precautions to ensure that families searching in YouTube Kids will see results that are appropriate for younger audiences. We screen content available through Search using a mix of automated analysis and user input, and we are continuously making improvements based on new technology, research, and user feedback. YouTube handles tremendous breadth, depth and scale of content -- so while we work hard to get it right, sometimes your child may find content in the app that you may not want them to watch. You can turn off Search using the parental settings, if you would like to restrict your child’s experience to a more limited set of content. Please keep in mind that regardless of the status of Search in your app, there is a chance that your child will find content that you don’t want them to watch. If this happens, you can notify YouTube by flagging the video. We use these flags to improve the app for everyone.
