SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–(NASDAQ:AMZN)—Amazon today announced that kids can now enjoy the popular
Amazon FreeTime Unlimited service, including books, videos, YouTube
videos and websites on Android phones and tablets. The FreeTime app for
Android is free to use and offers similar parental controls that are
available with FreeTime on Fire Tablets, including Fire Kids Edition,
plus access to over 40,000 YouTube videos and websites that have been
hand-selected by the FreeTime team. For even more content, parents can
add the Amazon FreeTime Unlimited service starting at $2.99 per month to
gain unlimited access to over 10,000 age-appropriate books and videos.
Parents can download the FreeTime app starting today at http://bit.ly/2otF8GD.


“Over 10 million kids have enjoyed Amazon FreeTime on Fire Tablets,
Kindle e-Readers, and Amazon Fire TV—we’re thrilled to bring that same
award-winning experience to even more families,” said Kurt Beidler,
Director of Kids & Family, Amazon. “Now, whether it’s a Mom sharing her
Android phone with her child or a child learning to use their first
Android tablet, Amazon FreeTime Unlimited makes it easier for kids to
have unlimited access to a broad selection of the content they love—on a
wide range of phones and tablets—while giving parents peace of mind.”

The award-winning Amazon FreeTime service balances giving kids the
freedom of choice and unlimited access to popular content while ensuring
parents that what their kids are viewing on their devices is
age-appropriate. Parents can hand-select books, videos, apps and games
to add to the FreeTime app, and kids can explore over 40,000
age-appropriate YouTube videos and websites that are hand-curated by the
FreeTime team. Parents can also manage screen time limits by content
type with innovative features like Learn First, which hides all
entertainment content until daily educational goals are met, and
Bedtime, which automatically turns off FreeTime at night and keeps it
off until the wake-up time parents set—with weekday and weekend settings.

For even more content, parents can add FreeTime Unlimited, the
all-in-one subscription service that allows kids to explore over 10,000
age-appropriate books and videos from popular brands like Disney,
