Useless! Only works for Android 7 or up. Most kids get hand me downs from their parents upgrading their phones. My kids only have android 5 or 6. Doesn't work for those phones. Looks like I'll have to wait to upgrade my phone in a few years, but by then I won't need the app. Also makes you pay $0.01 to add the kid without telling you that you need android 7. 🤔
This app is a living hell if you would like to torture your child then this is the right app... In my opinion it has many problems, one of the disadvantages is that it deletes all of your Google accounts off the device which leaves you with a laggy account with none of your data and it logs you about of all Google supported apps. Secondly it automatically blocks all of the teen apps on app store and you can't undo it unless u delete this app and you can only have one account on your device... NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL😨😩😬
Family Link had the possibility to be great. It is wildly limited. I can't share music with my son. I can't give him more responsibilities as he matures. It is too black and white. I need to have Family Link evolve with my son and our relationship. As soon as he turns 13, he's out and I retain no control. This shouldn't this obtuse. Google, I know that this can be improved upon.
I love integration. I try not to use 3rd party apps. Googe seems to know what I want for my kids. My 4yo can get addicted to his tablet. This helps me limit his exposure. Tech is important for kids to learn, however family values and time is very important.
The app says Google Payments is not available in my county (but I'm inCanada), and locks me out. I cannot find contact information for help anywhere, and as a result I had to reach out via this review. Any help at all would be appreciated, and get an updated review.
Only allows you to use it if your kids have and Android 7.0 and better device. Kids usually get cast off phones and tablets while parents upgrade meaning that some of my kids devices are on Android 5 and 6. Plus it only allows you to create new accounts, why not pre-existing accounts.....
