YouTube rolled out a series of changes that would put the platform in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
When content intended for children is viewed on the platform, YouTube will disable a series of features for both children and adult users. The most significant change will be that personalized advertising and comments will be disabled on all content intended for kids.
But these aren’t the only features that are disappearing on these videos. For instance, the notification bell, save to playlist or save to watch later features will also disappear when watching children’s content. Cards on end screens of videos, channel branding watermarks and channel memberships will also be disabled, while creators will also be unable to collect donations on children’s videos.
The changes come as YouTube paid a $170 million fine in September for violating COPPA. COPPA requires websites and online services targeted at children under the age of 13 to follow certain standards and requirements for delivering content. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), along with New York Attorney General Letitia James, accused YouTube of tracking children’s viewing histories and serving targeted ads to those children.
After paying the fine, YouTube said it would impose a series of changes in four months that would “treat data from anyone watching children’s content on YouTube as coming from a child, regardless of the age of the user.” The changes rolled out today will apply to all viewers of content marked for children, regardless of age.
Peace Of Mind In A Risky World
Those changes will adversely content creators who rely on advertising revenue and donations (through the YouTube platform). Some content creators have expressed concerns about the changes, particularly worried that having young audience may affect their ability to make revenue.

The days of squinting at a YouTube video on your friend’s phone are almost over. You already know you can cast YouTube to your TV screen to play videos for a group, or use the YouTube TV app if you have a smart TV. It makes the YouTube experience so much better. But there are some more elusive features that can really help your YouTube viewing experience shine.
For example, did you know you can watch free movies on YouTube, and rent the latest releases? Not to mention, you can also cast these movies to the TV in your hotel room while you’re on vacation. So take advantage and check out these cool tricks you can do on a TV.
This fall, YouTube Originals will be available to watch free (with ads) for all users, according to YouTube. So if you don’t see anything you want to watch now, you can always check back in the fall.
Rent the latest releases
If there’s a new movie you’ve been dying to see, like Avengers: Endgame, you can rent (or buy) it on YouTube. If you rent movies on your phone or computer, you’ll also be able to watch them on your TV. You can either pull the movie up on the YouTube app or cast it from your phone (see more below). You can check out the new releases here.
Once the two devices are connected, you can activate the Google Home by saying, “Hey, Google” or “OK, Google.” A couple examples of commands you can give: “Hey, Google, play Spider-Man: Far from Home trailer on living-room TV,” or, “OK, Google, play pilates videos on TV.” You can also tell your Google Home to pause, resume, skip and stop videos on your TV.
Take YouTube on vacation
You don’t want to miss out on your favorite YouTube influencer’s new vlog while you’re on vacation, and what better way than to watch it on a big screen. Of course, you can always watch the video on your phone or laptop, but the TV view is so much better. All you need is a Chromecast ($55 at eBay) or AirPlay-compatible device to start streaming those vlogs while on the go.
The TV and your phone (or laptop, tablet) need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi in order for this to work. Once they’re paired, open the video you want to watch on the YouTube app, then tap on the Cast icon > select the device you want to cast to > tap Play. Voila! Your video is now playing on the TV.
Watch YouTube videos designed for the big screen
YouTube for TV (not to be confused with YouTube TV) has the following options:
Recommended: Shows recommendations based on what you’ve watched in the past.
Entertainment: Has movie trailers, clips from your favorite shows and videos from your favorite influencers.
Gaming: The latest and what’s trending in the gaming world.
Music: You can watch official music videos, live performances and music stations picked for you. Listen to the top of the charts albums and new releases.
Latest: See what’s trending today, your daily top picks and featured playlists.
Find purchases and content you saved on your phone
If you’ve bought something on YouTube or saved a video on your phone, it’s simple to find it on your TV. To find a video you saved, select Library from the homepage and scroll down to the Watch Later section. You can also access everything you’ve bought from the same screen, just scroll down until you see Purchases.
