Google already offers parent and guardian tools Limit purchase Their kids earn money on the Play Store using the family payment method. The company is now rolling out an add-on feature that allows kids to send purchase requests to the family account manager for approval without an existing payment method.
Children can request approval for paid apps and in-app purchases when the family doesn’t have a payment method set up. Once the family manager receives the request via a notification (or in their request queue), they can approve the request and make the purchase using their own payment methods, including Google Play gift cards. Managers can view these requests under the Pending and History tabs.
This method works best when you want complete control over your kids’ purchases and household spending. You can view all the apps and in-app purchases your child is interacting with, and reject those that you deem harmful — or that you don’t want for any reason.
Google has introduced changes in recent months to better monitor how children interact with its services. In October, the company launched Redesigned Family Link app With highlights, controls, and location tabs, give it a web version as well. last month, It announced a policy change for the Play Storemaking the requirements for apps certified as “Kids” apps more stringent.
