According to BuzzFeed news YouTube is working on a completely human curated version of YouTube kids app. This non algorithm based app will allow YouTube to avoid graphic and misinformative content from it’s platform by only showing human approved channels and videos.
Recently YouTube app was caught up suggesting conspiracy videos like false moon landing, flat earth, etc. As the algorithm prefers videos which have high view rates this incident was inevitable. And plus YouTube in general has been having this problem with content creators not adhering to the YouTube policies and producing offensive or misinformative content.
Therefore this app will be success as it will also assure parents that kids are watching appropriate content. But this news haven’t been confirmed by YouTube officially, this is what a YouTube spokesperson said when asked about it
“We are always working to update and improve YouTube Kids, however we don’t comment on rumor or speculation,”
