All About: Xbox Family Setting App

The Xbox Family Settings app is a new easier way to manage your child's gaming on Xbox platforms. We wrote about this recently, it's a really nice way to make these things a lot easier to access.

This week, Xbox published a new video to outline how this works in the home. As you can see it shows the different things you can control with the app:

  • Set Time Limits
  • Request and Approve Extra Time
  • Set PEGI Age Limits on Games
  • Approve any new Friends Request
  • View Summary of Gaming Activity

You can download the app on iOS and Android.
