Google has announced that its YouTube Kids app now works with its paid YouTube Red service in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. It now allows videos on the apps to no longer show ads, among other features.
In a blog post, Google says that parents who sign up for YouTube Red will now be able to access these features in the YouTube Kids app:
- Ad-free videos: Let your kids learn and laugh along with their favorite characters without paid ads.
- videos: In the car or on grandma’s couch—always have videos when you need ’em, even if you don’t have a connection.
- Uninterrupted music: Keep family sing-alongs going while you use other apps on your phone.
YouTube Red costs $9.99 a month with a free 30-day trial. Google added that is working to add more features to YouTube Kids in the near future “that’ll give parents more choice on how to customize the content that appears or doesn’t appear in their YouTube Kids experience.”
