If you want to install and use the YouTube Kids app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:
Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here .
Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.
Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type YouTube Kids in the search bar and press Search. Click on YouTube Kids application icon. A window of YouTube Kids on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.
Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one
A world of learning and fun, made just for kids We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs. A safer online experience for kids We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families. Get the scoop on all the control features available to you: KID PROFILES: Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. CHANNEL COLLECTIONS: Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids. PARENT APPROVED CONTENT: Make sure you’re in control of what your kids watch and handpick the videos, channels, and collections of channels they can see. OLDER EXPERIENCE: As your little ones grow and develop you have the option to open up new content appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Simply enable this option when creating a new profile or update an already existing one. This setting allows kids to watch popular music and gaming videos from creators like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rosanna Pansino, Roman Atwood, Dan TDM, GloZell, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Dude Perfect, Brooklyn & Bailey, Minecraft, and many more. We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. These videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content. YOUNGER EXPERIENCE: The “Younger” version includes videos from Thomas the Tank Engine, Dreamworks TV, Talking Tom, The Little Bus Tayo, Angry Birds, Monster High, DC Kids, and many more. With a wide selection of sing-alongs and age appropriate learning videos, this experience is perfect for preschool to school aged little ones. We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. BLOCKING: Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles. VIDEO REPORTING: Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review. SEARCH CONTROL: Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids. TIMER: Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app. WATCH HISTORY: Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app. WATCH ON TV: Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs For more information, visit kids.youtube.com. Other important information: Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your kid. YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your kid may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads.
