Question – Why Google is restricting “Made for kids” videos from saving and making a playlist?
When a video is “made for kids”, YouTube has restricted saving that video even for adults. It also doesn’t allow you to play “made for kids” videos in the mini player or even like or dislike that video on YouTube.
YouTube came up with this change because of Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Under this act, if YouTube considers a video or channel “made for kids”, it will restrict many features for that video or channel. You won’t be able to use a variety of features if you are an adult.
These changes are imposed to protect children under 13 years. Google also has removed features like comments and donations from the “made for kids” videos.
