YouTube will also allowing parents to individually approve channels and videos for their kids to view.

YouTube also announced overnight that it had removed over 8 million "violative" videos between October and December 2017 as part of an effort to better enforce its community guidelines. "From collections of channels from trusted partners to enabling parents to select each video and channel themselves, we're putting parents in the driver's seat like never before".

YouTube Kids has struggled with disturbing videos, like beloved Disney characters in violent or sexual situations, sneaking past its automated filters. Unfortunately, those algorithms charged with policing content have occasionally failed, with Google now launching a more heavily curated section of the app that only displays human-approved videos.

The new features include "Collections" that will allow parents to choose only the channel collection and subjects they want their kids to view.

Parents will be given a choice to offer their young children a collection of channels, featuring content from Sesame Street, PBS and Kidzbop, with specific topics of interest like education, homework help, arts and crafts and science.

"By the end of the year, we plan to refine our reporting systems and add additional data, including data on comments, the speed of removal, and policy removal reasons." . The post pointed out that YouTube Kids app team has focused on features that give parents more control of the content available on the app. That control extends to the search-off feature where parents can opt to exclude recommendations that haven't been vetted by the YouTube Kids team.

Most videos were spam or included adult content, and a majority - 6.7 million - "were first flagged for review by machines" rather than humans, using technology introduced in June 2017, it said in an official blog post. This feature will be going live later this year, so watch out for this one. All of these channels will be a verified with Google, ensuring parents know that their kids are watching safe content.

"For parents who like the current version of YouTube Kids and want a wider selection of content, it's still available".

This does not change the existing structure of the app if parents prefer that.
