Today, the company is adding around 50 new kids games, stories, activities and more to the Assistant on Home and smartphones designed especially for kids and family.

Kids can sign up on their own and start playing games and do fun activities without anyone interference.
Google says that the assistant can now better recognize kids voices and much like ‘adults,’ it can distinguish kids voices to offer personalized results and customize responses.
However, to do this, kids still need to have Family Link account which became open to every parent in the USA only in September, though launched in March. The Family Link account allows parents to monitor their children’s phone activity and it lets parents create a Google Account for their children which can now be used to access all the new kid’s games and activities.
