Parents now able to select between three age groups called Preschool, Younger and Older. As the name suggests, preschool is appropriate for those who are 4 years old. Preschool age groups mainly contain contents specific to creativity, playfulness, learning, and Exploration. Similarily, Younger age group contents (that includes songs, cartoons, and Crafts) are appropiate for 5 to 7 year old. Last but not the least Old Age Group content is perfect for 8 to 12 year old. This group mainly contain contents specific to music videos, gaming, science, and more.
It doesn’t matter how much YouTube work to make sure the content they are showing falls in the appropriate category. So, some time is may happen you see inappropriate content. In that case, YouTube has given an option to flag such content.
