Google bringing Family Link to teens, in Australia too

Last year, Google launched a new app called Family Link for Parents.

Google has launched new tools on its free Family Link app created to set "digital ground rules" for teenagers. Teens are able to turn off the Family Link supervision when they want to, but a notification is sent to the parent that it has been turned off but Google want each family to have the discussion about what suits them best.

A new Android app from Google just hit the Google Play Store: Google Hire, which is associated with Google's Hire feature within the G Suite. The listing talks about the service and is developed by Google LLC.
