Amazon FreeTime now available in the Google Play Store for non-Fire devices

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is a collection of thousands of kid-friendly TV shows, movies, books, and apps. It’s a subscription service that costs $4.99 per child ($2.99 for Prime members), or $9.99 for a family of up to 4 children ($6.99 for Prime members). Since its launch in 2012, the service has only been available through Kindle and Fire devices, but Amazon has just released a FreeTime app in the Google Play Store, making the service available outside of Amazon’s own hardware for the first time.

The new Amazon FreeTime app is as full featured as its Fire tablet counterpart. It includes access to the same curated selection of content, as well as a kid-safe web browser. The browser limits internet access to only websites approved by Amazon’s curators or websites manually added by parents. The browser can also be disabled all together.

The Google Play Store version of FreeTime will also track usage, just like on Fire devices, so that parents can use the newly released Parental Dashboard for reports and insight into what kind of content their kids are most interested. You can aslo set time limits and restrictions on usage within the FreeTime app itself.
