Google introduced a new kid-friendly mode on Android tablets called Kids Space that features curated content for children to explore and learn.

The new mode will allow children access to a library of content, including apps, games, books and videos. Kids will be able to customise their own character, and will receive recommended content based on their interests.

“Kids are natural explorers and when they have access to great content, it can be a magical experience,” Google said in a blog post. “They can read up on their favourite dinosaur, watch videos on how to bake a treat or discover new hobbies.”

Parents can use the new kids tab in Google Play to easily find and select “teacher-approved” apps for their kids. Also, in the Watch and Make tabs, children can view creative and fun videos from YouTube Kids.

The apps with “teacher-approved” badge, have been reviewed and rated by teachers on factors like age-appropriateness, quality of experience, enrichment, and delight, the search giant said.

Kids Space will be available in Lenovo tablets, initially, and will be added to more Android tablets later, it added.
