Microsoft begins limited preview testing of its Family Safety app for Android and iOS

Microsoft is rolling out a new Family Safety app for mobile devices to a select number of testers that provides screen-time limits, location sharing, driving reports, and more.

Microsoft unveiled in March its plans to deliver a new Family Safety app for Android and iOS devices. Today, May 11, Microsoft began making available to a limited number of users previews of the Family Safety app on those devices.

The mobile Family Safety app will allow users to limit screen time for their children, aggregated across Windows PCs, Xboxes, and Android/iPhone devices. It will provide location sharing, driving reports, device time analyses, and the ability to set limits on usage of apps and games. Kids will be able to turn off permissions on certain features (like geolocation).
