Google Family Link gets location tracking plus better screen time limiting features


Google is giving its Family Link app (opens in new tab) a makeover to be more user friendly while also adding more parental control features.

Family Link first launched five years ago as a way for parents to manage how children use their Android devices – setting a screen time limit, for example. Since then, the app really hasn’t gotten a lot of attention from Google, which makes this new wave of updates all the more welcome. The company states that developers took feedback from parents for the redesign (opens in new tab), resulting in three new tabs – Controls, Location, and Highlights – to better organize the app’s features.
