Google will be introducing a new way for kids to explore and use technology – Kids Space mode. Android tablets will get Google Kids Space mode that will consist of apps, books, and videos for kids to explore and learn from. It will have parental controls and ways for parents to pick “teacher-approved” apps for kids to play.
Google Kids Space will be available globally for Lenovo tablets initially, beginning with Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD Gen 2, and will be coming soon to more Android tablets.
Google Kids Space will recommend quality kid-friendly content for the child based on interests. It will come with apps and games from Google Play that have been approved by teachers and children’s education and media specialists led by advisers from Harvard. Children will also be able to customise their own characters on Google Kids Space, and find new and engaging content to read, play, and make.
Parents can choose to download additional apps, games, and books from Google Play to customise. In order to use Kids Space, children will be required to have Google Accounts.
