YouTube can babysit your kids with new app

Tech Industry
YouTube wants to babysit your kids. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. [MUSIC] YouTube is launching a a kid friendly mobile app called YouTube KIds. It's first coming to app stores on Monday. USA Today was first to report about the upcoming app. It'll feature videos appropriate for youngsters like Thomas the Tank Engine. And it's gonna filter out any cruddy comments. Parents can also set how long a child can use an app. right now, on YouTube, there's no category that rounds up family friendly content, and whatever you do, don't search for the term family friendly. Those search results cannot be unseen. Seen. YouTube could use portal parents can trust. Netflix has a children's portal, and Amazon also has been pushing kids programming. The next level is having apps just for kids. Earlier this month, Vine launched an app for kid-friendly Vine videos. Although I'm not sure if it's so friendly to kid's brains to be bombarded with six second moving videos. In other news, it looks like Pebbles has a new Smart Watch on the way. Pebbles website now features a countdown clock to reveal some. Seen at 10 a.m. Tuesday. It could be new hardware. Maybe a software update. The website 9to5Mac is hearing that Pebble's working on a color e-ink display on that smart watch. And it'll include a microphone for voice command. Pebble recently pushed out a software update that gives Android users more options. If you use Pebble with an Android phone, you can now respond to text messages from your your wrist with five custom pre-written short messages. Right now i've seen it, we have details on how to set that up. In the world of apps, Google's inbox app is expanding to more screens. The email app is now available on iPad and Android tablets, before it was just on smart phones. It still requires an invitation to try out Google's new format. To organizing email. To get on the waiting list for invites, send a message to inbox@google.com. Microsoft also rolled out some updates to its Outlook apps for iOS and Android, which improve security for exchange users. And the Android version opens up new ways to customize swipe gestures, just like iOS users can already do. It's just one of Microsoft's latest moves to be a stronger player in the mobile world. And finally, a little update on the Superfish adware Lenovo preinstalls on its own computers. Lenovo has changed its tone and has apologized to customers for installing harmful adware that left customers vulnerable to hackers. The computer maker posted instructions on how to remove it. And Microsoft also took some. Some action. It updated Windows Defender Anti-Virus to remove the ad-ware and bad security certificate. Windows Defender is the default anti-virus program in Windows 8. That's your Tech News update and there's always more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
