The official YouTube Kids app is designed for curious little minds. This is a delightfully simple (and free!) app, where kids can discover videos, channels and playlists they love.
We work hard to offer a safer YouTube experience, but no automated system is perfect. If you ever find a video you’re concerned about, please flag it. This helps make YouTube Kids better for everyone.


To make exploration easy, videos in the app are split into four categories: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore. We also took out the complicated stuff to make an app even little ones can navigate -- that means big buttons, easy scrolling, and instant full-screen.


Kids can enjoy favorites like Thomas & Friends, DreamworksTV and Talking Tom, online hits like Mother Goose Club, Super Simple Songs and Wonder Quest, plus anything else they’re into -- sports, animals, gaming, crafts and more.


We know that every family is different, so we’ve included features that let grown-ups tailor the YouTube Kids experience to their family’s needs. Settings are found behind a grown-ups-only lock where you can turn off search for a more restricted experience. Note that logged in YouTube Kids features such as content blocking and YouTube Red are not yet available on this platform.

For more information about the app and settings, please read our Parental Guide.


Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your child.

YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your child may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads. For more information, please check out our Parental Guide.

Videos in the app are selected by our automated systems. Please note, no system is perfect, and it’s possible that your child may find something you don’t want them to watch. If your child finds a video that you feel is inappropriate, please flag the video and it will be reviewed as soon as possible.

You can restrict your child’s experience by turning search off in the set-up flow or by accessing the settings behind the grown-ups-only lock. This means your child can’t search for content, which reduces the chances that they will encounter a video you don’t want them to watch.

Whether search is on or off, the app will recommend videos selected by our automated systems from the broad set of videos accessible in YouTube Kids.

    I have youtube kids installed on my phone/tablet and my kids love it. I have it installed on my Android TV devices and it NEVER gets used. Why no voice search? It doesn't make sense. They just go to the regular youtube app and voive search what they want. Often they get it, but they also will find and view some inappropriate stuff as well on the Full Youtube app. PLEASE add voice search for YouTube Kids on Android TV! Full Review

    The YouTube Kids for Android TV app is lacking many important features, most important of which is the ability to block videos and channels. The ability to block channels and videos is extremely important for any parent who is looking to monitor what their children are watching. Full Review

    Just installed this on my NVDIA Shield. Was super excited because I don't let my kids use regular YouTube. I simply don't understand why there is no voice search. Little kids are not able to type in what they want to look for. Not to mention voice search simply makes EVERYTHING easier on the TV (even for adults). Full Review
