YouTube kids adds new controls for parents

YouTube Kids has struggled with disturbing videos, like beloved Disney characters in violent or sexual situations, sneaking past its automated filters. Now the app is adding new settings to give parents more control over what videos their kids can see. The company announced Wednesday an option to filter videos by “approved content only,” so parents can whitelist channels and subjects. Content for YouTube Kids is selected from the main YouTube app and screened using machine learning algorithms. But some videos, such as cartoons disguised as age appropriate, slip through the cracks. YouTube Kids still has its main library available by default for now, and the company says it is working on more controls for parents. via CBC
