Amazon has recently announced that its kid’s friendly FreeTime service is now available on any Android phone or tablet. The application was earlier available only for Fire or Kindle devices. But, now the application is available for all Android users and users can get access to more than 40,000 YouTube videos, content and websites currently available in FreeTime’s catalog, along with parental controls.
“Over 10 million kids have enjoyed Amazon FreeTime on Fire Tablets, Kindle e-Readers, and Amazon Fire TV-we’re thrilled to bring that same award-winning experience to even more families,” said Kurt Beidler, Director of Kids & Family, Amazon. “Now, whether it’s a Mom sharing her Android phone with her child or a child learning to use their first Android tablet, Amazon FreeTime Unlimited makes it easier for kids to have unlimited access to a broad selection of the content they love-on a wide range of phones and tablets-while giving parents peace of mind.”
Amazon FreeTime provides suitable content that’s both educational and entertaining aiming specifically children between the ages of three and 12. The app includes a Dashboard for the parents and Discussion cards. Discussion Cards allows parents to connect with their kids’ digital experience by giving short summaries of the FreeTime content their kids are using, alongwith sample questions and activities that parents & kids can share in together based on the book, video, educational app or game. The Discussion Cards are specifically designed within the Parent Dashboard, it is a mobile optimized website that also provides daily activity reports to help parents review the digital content their children are using in FreeTime, to determine how to manage time limits and set educational goals for their kids.
The FreeTime app allows parents to hand-select books, videos, apps and games. Parents can also manage and set screen time limits by content type with innovative features like Learn First, which hides all entertainment content until the defined daily educational goals are fulfilled, and Bedtime, which automatically turns off the FreeTime at night and keeps it off until the wake-up time parents set—with weekday & weekend settings.
