A little over 2 years ago, Google launched ‘YouTube Kids’ on mobile devices. The app is now coming to TVs from LG, Samsung, and Sony.

YouTube for kids

YouTube Kids is a safe space for children whether they are“ searching for science experiments, watching a favorite cartoon, or simply watching your favorite creator’s new videos, there is something for everyone”, says Google.

The service was launched a little over two years ago and is available in 26 countries with more to follow. Google says that the service has streamed 30 billion views and that it has 8 million weekly active viewers.
