It looks colorful and easy to navigate. Children will find a growing library of books and apps in the Read and Play tabs. Google is working with publishers to open up access to books, and kids in the United States will be able to read over 400 books for free in Kids Space.
The Watch and Create tabs include videos from YouTube Kids that Google says are “engaging and encourages offscreen activity.” If all that isn’t enough, parents can download more stuff for their kids to check out on Google Play.
The first tablet that will include the mode is the new Lenovo Tab M10 HD Gen 2. It features a 10.1-inch wide-angle HD display and dual Dolby Atmos speakers. The tablet starts at $ 129.99 and is expected to be available next month.
Kids Space will soon be available on other Android tablets. Other companies have tried kid-friendly tablet experiments, with Amazon among the most notable examples.
