Children Can Send Google Play Purchase Requests to Parents

Children Can Send Google Play Purchase Requests to Parents: Google already provides parents and guardians with resources to limit the Play Store purchases their kids can make using the family payment option. When there isn’t a payment option available, the firm is now offering a new tool to let kids send a purchase request for the family account manager to authorize.

Children can request parental consent for both in-app purchases and paid apps when the family hasn’t established a payment mechanism. After receiving this request through a notice (or in their request queue), the family manager can use their preferred payment method, such as Google Play gift cards, to authorize the request and complete the transaction. These requests are accessible to the manager via the pending and history tabs.

This strategy works best when you want complete control over the purchases your children make and the money your family spends. You may view all the applications and in-app purchases your kids are using and reject any that you feel are unsafe or unnecessary.

Google has made some adjustments recently to improve monitoring of how kids use its services. The business released a revamped version of the Family Link app in October and a web version that included highlights, controls, and location tabs.

It announced changes to the Play Store’s policies last month, tightening the standards for apps that want to be designated as “kids” apps. The TechCrunch article “Google Play Now Lets Kids Send Purchase Requests to Guardians” was written by Ivan Mehta.
