This is a great update by Google but reality is most kids want the "real" YouTube app experience. The challenge for parents is limiting the bad content. Google has a Restricted Mode buried inside the app's settings which parents should enable on their kids' Android or iOS mobile device. Another massive tip: get Boomerang Parental Control for Android (sorry can't do this on iOS) - the only app that can enforce and block access to Restricted Mode once enabled and provides parents with YouTube viewing history and searches. More info useboomerang.com

Hey @google get in touch regarding APIs - I would love to be able to let parents flag content via our reporting feature!

We have developed a parental control app that has an app blocking functionality. The Multi-Window that's baked into Android 7+ breaks our app blocking. On Samsung-based hardware, we are able to block Multi-Window via their KNOX SDK. I found this https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/multi-window.html but I'm not seeing where I could leverage so that I can block this activity. Any tips are appreciated!

Just read the Snapchat Terms of Service and under "Who Can Use the Services" it says, "You can form a binding contract with Snapchat—meaning that if you’re between 13 and 17, your parent or legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to these Terms;" OK. Tough situation for both Snapchat & Parents. For Snapchat, having a stronger enforcement mechanism would lead to an escalation of cat & mouse games. For Parents, it may mean that they are not aware that Snapchat is being used. One can use Boomerang to see all the applications that are installed on your child's device so you can parent the digital life that we are in and have a conversation with your child and ensure that Snapchat is set appropriately. Here's all about Snapchat: http://ow.ly/YbO5M
