I have youtube kids installed on my phone/tablet and my kids love it. I have it installed on my Android TV devices and it NEVER gets used. Why no voice search? It doesn't make sense. They just go to the regular youtube app and voive search what they want. Often they get it, but they also will find and view some inappropriate stuff as well on the Full Youtube app. PLEASE add voice search for YouTube Kids on Android TV!
The YouTube Kids for Android TV app is lacking many important features, most important of which is the ability to block videos and channels. The ability to block channels and videos is extremely important for any parent who is looking to monitor what their children are watching.
Just installed this on my NVDIA Shield. Was super excited because I don't let my kids use regular YouTube. I simply don't understand why there is no voice search. Little kids are not able to type in what they want to look for. Not to mention voice search simply makes EVERYTHING easier on the TV (even for adults).
The first release of YouTube Kids on TV.
