YouTube is thinking about limiting kid's videos to its dedicated app

YouTube has a moderately bad history record when it comes to handling kids videos, and the company is looking to make some changes in its policies to neglect future incidents.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the company may move all child-oriented videos to its dedicated Kids application, and may also disable the autoplay feature.

These changes in the policies can hurt YouTube's ad revenue.

It is not clear when YouTube will implement these changes. A Google spokeswoman stated that the company has lots of plans to work on, but some only remain ideas and never get the chance to execute.

It is possible that YouTube might take some actions as disturbing videos featuring kids has hurt their business in the past.

It won't be useful to hold children' videos within the leading YouTube service, the use of the same features if it results in further problems and more frustrated advertisers.


Even though the company hasn't said anything, the Wall Street Journal 's insiders say that Google CEO Sundar Pichai is personally involved in operating YouTube by some of its previous problems.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai, will apply such policies if he felt that the company isn't going the job good enough to protect kids on YouTube.
