YouTube To Introduce “Supervised Experiences” Feature For Filtering Content
YouTube is introducing a new feature that lets you control what your kids watch on the platform. The report comes from The Verge, which states that the app will now allow users to filter out content based on the nature of the content.
Called “supervised experiences”, the new feature will filter certain age-appropriate content with three levels of strictness. It will start rolling out on YouTube with an early bet that will come out in some months.

According to the company, the new feature will let parents filter the age-appropriate content for their children even when not using the YouTube Kids app. Users can choose between three levels. The levels adjust the content the child is allowed to view.
If you happen to have a kid whos more than nine years old, the “Explore” level might be suitable for you. The “Explore More” level is for kids 13 and up. “Most of YouTube” is the third and last level that lets kids access all of YouTube except the age-restricted content. In case you happen to live in the US, you can make your own unsurprised YouTube account after you turn 13.
The first level, “Explore” lets your kids watch content such as “clips, news, educational content, vlogs, gaming videos and much more”. The only difference between the “Explore” and “Explore More” level is that you can watch live streams on the platform. “Most of YouTube” lets kids watch videos on sensitive topics.
YouTube has clarified that their “supervised experiences” feature will be based on machine learning, manual input and human review. The company went on to admit that the system will not be perfect and that it will probably make mistakes.
Having said that, parents need to still supervise what content their kids watch. It is still a great feature to have even if YouTube’s system isn’t perfect. “Supervised Experience” will be available on the app in the coming months.
