Building family-friendly experiences.
We build special features – like smart filters, site blockers and content ratings – into many of our products to make them more enjoyable for your family.
content to help kids
discover, create and grow.*
Designed with children's curiosity in mind
Whether it’s animals or art projects, kids become little experts on the things that they love. That’s why Kids Space recommends quality content for your kid based on interests that they choose. With recommended content, children can explore their latest fascinations in new and engaging ways. Children can even customise their experience by creating their own character.
Recommended apps, books and videos
When a child opens Kids Space, they'll see a library of quality content. Children can explore recommendations for apps, games, books and videos to find new ways to play and learn.†
Set boundaries with parental controls
With parental controls in Family Link you can guide your child’s experience by managing content, setting screen time limits and more, all from your own device.
Discover a world of learning and fun with YouTube Kids
We created YouTube Kids to be a safer environment for children to explore their interests through online videos. You can find family-friendly videos on all different topics across all your devices, whether you download the YouTube Kids app, visit us on the web or view YouTube Kids on your smart TV.
Expert Approved content for your child on Google Play
We’ve teamed up with academic experts, teachers and child development specialists, to help you find content that’s right for your child. Browse our Kids tab on the Google Play Store to find Expert Approved apps that are both enriching and entertaining. On the app details page, you can see why experts rate apps highly, and check content ratings to understand if an app is age appropriate. You can also see whether an app contains ads, allows in-app purchases or requires device permissions.
We hold developers who build apps for children to higher standards with our developer policies for the Play Store.
Fun for the whole family with help from Google Assistant
Your Assistant makes it easy to find entertainment for the whole family to enjoy together. Discover family-friendly games and activities created through our Actions for Families programme, or hear your favourite tales before bed by simply asking your Assistant to tell you a story. Listen to music that the whole family can enjoy once you’ve set up filters, and use Downtime on your device to unplug and make the most of your time together.
Human reviewers have reviewed each of our Actions for Families activities for family friendliness, but no system is perfect. Inappropriate content can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards.
Building a more secure learning environment for classrooms
Google Workspace for Education helps teachers and students interact securely across devices. Its core services do not contain ads, and we do not use any personal information of users in primary through secondary (K–12) schools to target ads. We also provide tools to help administrators set policies around appropriate activities and help protect students using their school Google accounts. We are committed to providing schools with the tools and resources that they need to make informed decisions around the Google Workspace for Education services used by their students.
Making the classroom safer
Millions of students use Chromebooks – Google’s laptops – in the classroom. Administrators can manage group settings to give students as much or as little functionality or access as needed. Our privacy and security features help keep children’s personal information protected and have helped make Chromebooks the top choice in many primary and secondary schools throughout the country.
