Due to overwhelming demand by parents who want to see a safer YouTube environment for children, a special edition of the online video library has just been launched. The new version, known as YouTube Kids, is the byproduct of input from in-house engineers that have children as well as third-party testers from various organizations such as Common Sense Media. YouTube Kids offers an incredibly simplified user interface, allowing young viewers to tap on eight large tiles that feature popular children shows and five small icons that lead them to additional content. The newly launched application also includes a parental control feature, in which parents can set a limit to the amount of time that their child or children can utilize the application before it closes automatically.

YouTube Kids is scheduled to be available for immediate download today, and is currently only being developed for Android devices.
