Google Family Link App Splits into Parent and Child/Teen Versions


Google Family Link app is a service that lets parents monitor their child’s or teen’s location and smartphone usage remotely from their own handset. Earlier, the app was designed to monitor children ages 13 and younger. However now the company has split the app into Parent and Child Version and Parent and Teen Version. The Parent and Teen version is available for the teens older than 13.

Google Family Link App push teacher-recommended apps directly to the child’s handset

The working is same for both the service. Like, Monitoring activity, setting limits, and locking a device works pretty much the same with children. For teens, the parent and teen accounts must both agree to monitor the teen. The teens can disable the Google Family Link app but the parent will receive a notification when that happens.

Google Family Link can also push teacher-recommended apps directly to the child’s handset. Moreover, Google is going to expand these kinds of features like screen time, usage limits, and remote app-installs to Chromebooks in the future.
