YouTube wants to give parents a cable this summer in which many of us are going to have to be working at home with the children going around us. Yes, it is true that putting them face to the TV or the tablet is not the best, but everything has its moment and it can be an option for you to have a fun time from time to time. But as you probably know, children quickly tire of almost everything. For this reason, Google has decided include new content on YouTube Kids during the month of August. This will include everything from full movies to special shows, totaling 100 new videos.
New content on YouTube Kids every Monday
During the month of August YouTube is going to launch new content on its platform for children, YouTube Kids. Over the next month, until August 31, YouTube Kids will launch more than 100 films and specials as part of the “After School” platform project.
During the presentation of the project, Don Anderson, Head of Family and Learning Associations at YouTube, explained that the purpose of the service is to help parents who are juggling work, life and children due to the problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic. As we all know, it is being a difficult few months, in which many parents have to telework with their children at home.
The content that will reach the platform consists of, according to Anderson, a library of high-quality movies and special programs designed to entertain our children and that we can also enjoy together with them. Some examples of what can be seen are Tayo the Little Bus, Baby Shark and Pinkfong, The Wiggles, Masha And The Bear and Oggy & the Cockroaches and Paddington. Hair Love, winner of the Best Animated Short Film at the Oscars, will also be available.
There will be no shortage of more educational content, with shows like Sesame Street’s Elmo’s World News, and new movies and shows that will debut on the platform. Every week YouTube Kids will add new content. Specifically the platform will be updated every monday so that children can see the new content during the week. This can be found in the “Shows” category of the YouTube Kids platform from next Monday, August 3 and until August 31 of this year.
