Xbox One's parental control time limits now apply across Windows and Android

[2019.10.09, Wed 11:05] The Xbox One's October 2019 update gives parents much more granular control over how long their kids can use different apps and games. The update allows parents to set time limits on a per-app basis, which will apply regardless of whether a child is using the app on an Xbox One console, Windows 10 PC, or Android phone using the Microsoft launcher. Parents have previously been able to set limits on the amount of time a child can use the console, but the difference with the Xbox One's latest update is that these time limits can be set on a per-app basis. They'll be able to set time limits on any child accounts tied to their Microsoft family group. Because these limits are cross-device, a child can't just sneakily switch to playing the same game on Windows 10 once their Xbox One allowance runs out. Along with the new parental control features, the update brings a couple of extra improvements to the Xbox One. Finally, the update is also introducing new ways to share Xbox Games Pass recommendations.
