Time limit on app categories

Jump to solution

Hi.

I was wondering if it's possible to limit time spent on app categories on Android devices? I only found time limits on specific apps in rules settings.

I'd want to set up devices so the kids can spend 3 hours per day for gaming, but they can choose which games they spend it on.

Thanks

Hi @NimiNimi

As of now we do not have an option to categorize a set of application and set a time limit or restriction. We kindly suggest you to select the apps that you would like to setup a time limit and configure it individually. We regret the inconvenience.

Thanks & Regards

Hi.

Yes, I've read through them and browsed the settings, but only thing I found about time restrictions are for specific applications. Types of apps are only mentioned in blocking part, but I don't want to block all games.

The options are "Blocks a type of application from a kid to use" and "Set a time limit on kid's profile they can use an application"

Now it seems like the only way to give someone limited game time is to pick specific games and give them a time limit. I'd like to give a time limit for a type of application, so I don't decide which games my kids get to play for 30 mins, 1 hour, etc.
