Amazon reborns FreeTime on Amazon Kids to confuse short service

Amazon introduced Freetime Back in 2012 for children to enjoy and enjoy technology and for parents to easily monitor their children’s usage. Nevertheless, the name (at least to me) sounds like a service to help people spend less time on their electronic devices. To fix this, Amazon is renaming Freetime to “Amazon Kids” and Freetime Unlimited to “Amazon Kids Plus”.

Along with the updated naming scheme, Amazon also has Give the service a facelift. Over the next few weeks, Amazon will roll out a new Amazon Kids home screen, recommended for children ages eight and up, to experience that a “grown-up tablet” is more like a traditional tablet Changes the layout to look how it feels. The service previously had a simplified interface where children could swipe between apps one at a time. Parents can use the Amazon parent dashboard to modify the age filter to display what type of content on their children’s home screen. The new home screen includes quick access to child-friendly music stations from iHeartRadio.

Amazon also announced today that children will soon be able to use the Fire tablet to broadcast announcements to any Alexa device in their homes. Their parents must approve each announcement, so children cannot ask their parents to come to their room for snacks.

Amazon Kids is free if you already pay for Amazon Prime, but Kids Plus requires a $ 5 monthly subscription, or $ 3 a month. The paid service provides exclusive access to more audiobooks, books, shows, movies, games and media in Spanish.
