Now, turn off your teen's phone with Google's 'Family Link'

Google Family LInk- best new android apps

According to a Google blog post on Tuesday, Family Link, a free app created to allow parents to set digital rules for their child's online experience, has been adapted for teens. Family Link allows them to set screen time limits for their child's Android device, track the location of the phone, view activity reports, i.e., the time spent on different apps and approve or block their app downloads from the Google Play Store. The service has received positive feedback since it was launched in the United States previous year. Teens are able to turn off the Family Link supervision when they want to, but a notification is sent to the parent that it has been turned off but Google want each family to have the discussion about what suits them best.

When first introduced parents could only watch children up to the age of 13 but this can now be changed to kids that are older.

It also plans to integrate it with Google Assistant, which would allow parents to use voice commands to lock, locate their kid's device. At that time, the service was nothing more than a website but it looks like the search giant is bringing a new app as well. The app which was available in the US until now has been launched today globally in countries including India.

This app is not just limited to Android devices; the Family Link supervision can be implemented on Chromebooks, too, but with fewer capabilities. "Over the coming days, we'll make Family Link available to more families, on more devices, and in almost every country in the world", said Golgher.

Soon, parents will also be able to ask Google Assistant to lock the devices of their kids, instead of doing it themselves on their own device. Thankfully for them (or at least, most of them), the wait is soon to be over, now that Google has announced it will roll Family Link out to "nearly every country in the world" over the coming days.
