Let’s face it. This generation of kids is going to grow up with technology in hand nearly 24/7. Samsung Kids is aiming to make that reality a little easier to manage for parents. Samsung Kids brings engaging and fun content to kids via their Samsung tablet or phone.
Today, Samsung Kids has expanded the age ranges for the service to 3 to 12 years old from the previous 3 to 8-year-old range before, launching new content, games, and materials to accommodate the new age range, keeping children’s attention while out of school.
Samsung Kids now supports eight languages, with the service adding Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Korean and Portuguese in the service, in addition to English. To access the new update, Galaxy device owners should head to the Google Play store to download the new version of the Samsung Kids service.
Here’s just an example of what you can find on the new app for kids ages 9-12:
