Google is adding a new section to the Google Play Store specially dedicated to Kids. This new section will offer a selection of so-called “Teacher Approved” apps. According to the tech giant, this section contains apps that meet its quality standards and are highly rated by teachers.
Each of these apps included in this section includes a list of reasons why teachers like it, including age-appropriateness, and what children will learn from these apps. The search giant mentioned that this new section was planned to release later this year, but it brought the launch forward since so many children are now spending so much of their time at home in front of screens.
As you all know, during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all the schools and colleges are forced to close to promote social distancing to combat the situation. And so, children tend to stay at their home with their parents. Google says that this early launch means that the section will launch with some apps missing but that it’s working to review more “as quickly as possible.”
As of now, the new Kids section is rolling out on Google Play Store in the next few days in the US, and Google expects to launch it internationally in the coming months.
