Google introduces website that helps parents with kids' tech use

Catching the demand of parents who want to get more control over their kids’ watch time, Google has launched a new feature - families.google. This is a website being spent for the family as kids begin using technology.

According to a report of Google, two in five parents have not enough confidence in talking about different tech-related topics with their kids. Those topics can include things like screen time, digital wellbeing, and discovering quality apps, games, and activities.

With this new website, detailed guides will be introduced to parents. Thanks to that, they can know how to approach their kids` technology use from various organizations. 

Also, not only getting overviews of our kid’s and families’ products, but you can also receive the latest apps and services as well as find helpful information on parental controls across the web, according to Google’s statement on Tuesday. 

Now, children can be free to use apps that their parents approve and designate them as "always allowed," even when their screen time limit is up. 

Informing this website benefit, Google added that parents can see the accessing history from added details to daily, weekly and monthly activity reports. From that, an overview is presented about how a child is spending their time in apps, how it changes over a week or month, and what portion of time was spent in “always allowed apps".

Last year, the analyzed data showed that three in five parents allowed their kids to access online more time as they stayed home.

Google said the company is also trying to cooperate with online firm Headspace to create content that helps families practice mindfulness and wellbeing. 

Over the next month, an episode from the new Headspace Breathers series will be launched weekly on YouTube and YouTube Kids, the company said.
