Google Kids Space receives a much-needed feature with the latest Google Play system update

Google has updated its Google Play system update support page to highlight all the changes included in the September 2022 release. The latest update brings a few Google Kids Space improvements, along with a host of Play Store optimizations and bug fixes.

With the latest release, users can hide recommended apps during the Google Kids Space onboarding process and install Google Kids Space on a tablet’s secondary user during device setup. The latter will make it easier for users to share their Android tablets with kids.

In addition, the September 2022 update brings improvements to account syncing and account recovery for Android Auto, phones, TVs, and Wear OS. Although not explicitly mentioned on the support page, these account syncing and account recovery improvements could include support for backing up Wear OS smartwatch data to make switching to a new phone a more seamless process.
