Ouya has released a small firmware update to give the option for 'Age Gating,' aka parental age specific controls for games and apps. What does this mean? It means if you don't want your kids getting into anything you designate not age approptraite you can filter out the bad and leave only the good. Pretty simple.
Here are the details:
Age Gating has been introduced for PLAY and DISCOVER! Here are the details:
- Age Gating is OFF by default.
- To turn it on, go to MANAGE -> ACCOUNT -> PARENTAL CONTROLS -> “Filter content by rating”.
"Block" means that any game/app with that rating or higher will simply not appear in DISCOVER and PLAY. To see these games/apps again, simply turn of Age Gating.
- Select which level of content you wish to block. Selecting a level blocks that level and anything more mature than it.
