YouTube Kids has proven to be a popular way for parents to give their children access to a limited collection of YouTube content, even if that collection occasionally includes videos depicting suicide and cannibalism (oops!). The service has slowly been expanding its global reach, and now Google has added 11 more nations to the availability list.
According to Google support documents, YouTube Kids has just become available in 11 more countries, all located in Central and South America. Here's the full list:
- Costa Rica
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador

- Cayman Islands
- Hong Kong
- Turks and Caicos Islands

New nations across the Middle East and North Africa
Google announced that it's expanding YouTube Kids to 15 more nations across the Middle East and North Africa, including
- United Arab Emirates
- Saudi Arabia
The company hasn't named other countries and hasn't updated its full availability list with the new territories just yet, so we'll have to wait a bit to see where else Google launched the service this time around.
Turkey gets YouTube Kids
From the gateway between continents, Google Turkey has announced the arrival of YouTube Kids in the country with localized content.
The video sharing site's subservice now reaches children in 44 languages and 106 countries.
More new countries in the Middle East
More countries have been added on the official YouTube Kids support site. A few of them were already known and listed above, but the new entries are:
To be clear, YouTube Kids may have been available in some or all of these for the last few weeks. Countries already confirmed to have access, including Egypt and Turkey, were also added to the support document. But this is the first time we've seen Google confirm it for the countries above.
