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:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

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

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

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.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

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.

Step 4: for Mac OS

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

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

YouTube Kids Software Features and Description

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 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.

    Well, I have used this in a probable span of two years and it’s only gone downhill. The content on here that I was relieved that I found, has been taken off for NO REASON. There might not even be anything wrong with the video. All of the really good nightcore music has been removed. Now all I’m left with is kids bop sucky standards. You only present the covers of songs that I would genuinely rather listen to the actual thing. YES, I GET IT EVERY LIVING PERSON CAN PLAY THIS SONG ON A DIGITAL PIANO, but let’s all just oppose the idea of an actual song. Yes, I understand the fact that this is a 4+ application, but this is just repetitive, tedious and just annoying. It’s every single day, that more of my beloved stuff is repealed. It’s not even censoring, there’s still an abundance of WAY worse stuff, this is just invasive. But nope. My perfectly fine array of music is gone. The audio quality is gradually depleting every time I click on this app. AND UGH THE 30 SECOND INTRO! WHAT VIDEO STREAMING THING NEEDS AN INTRO. So thanks I appreciate it. I know this probably will be overlooked so.. bye bye YTK ✌🏼

  • Use it daily

    The kids and I love the app because we can look up kid friendly videos and learning channels. It makes for good entertainment during waits at the doctor’s office etc... I like that I can block videos that I don’t like, however I wish I could block categories such as “Halloween” and it block all videos with Halloween in the title. Unfortunately, I have not found such an option and my two year old will still stumble on Halloween videos that I do not want her watching. If you use this app, make sure you are sitting next to your children while they watch, the videos at the bottom of page are thrown up by the app and it will not even be related to what you are currently watching. Other than that, I like the different content categorized by each child’s age group, but don’t trust that completely.
  • Used to be better

    By Flipside0983
    When I first downloaded this for my son the app in itself was a lot easier to maintain and control. I suppose some changes after recent updates does not allow the user to clear the browsing cache anymore. I’ve gone through the settings over and over but can’t seem to find that option anymore. While my son used to watch educational, entertaining or kid friendly videos now there is nothing but homemade crap videos of mostly adults “reviewing” toys or doing some other nonsense. Since the last update I’ve had to block probably 30+ channels from the lite nonsense that comes up on the app now since I am unable to clear the cache. Please add this feature back. I really do enjoy the app for my son but having to block all the foreign channels so he doesn’t get confused and the other nonsensical channels is getting a little overwhelming.

    By JaylaPrincess11
    I have a eleven year old daughter that has been begging for me to get her YouTube but I’m just not ready for her to have that freedom please make a app that is for preteens where she can comment like and subscribe on other peoples videos and be notified when they upload this would be really good for her and I think it would help a lot of other parents around the world

  • Good but...

    By Ty loves games
    This app is great for little kids and stuff, but there are some shows that are for kids that isn’t on there. It’ll be great so add a few more YouTube channels on there. But after that, I think the app is great! Suggestions: Denisdaily, Zephplayz and Guava Juice. I hope you read that and add some more YouTube channels!
