Google Is Launching YouTube Kids, An App For Family-Friendly Videos, Just For Android Devices On February 23rd

Google has revealed their intention to roll out a new YouTube app just for kids, starting next week. It will be aptly named YouTube Kids and is geared towards those 10 years old or younger.

IFTTT is changing things up. The company has renamed its existing Android app to IF, leaving us to wonder what happened to the This Then That part of the formula. Functionality-wise, nothing. The app is largely the same as it was before, but it's now joined by three companions that are all focused on DOing. More on them in a second.
