Amazon has expanded its FreeTime service, which lets parents load up tablets and other devices with kid-friendly books, videos and other content, has expanded to include Android devices.

Until now, the service, which Amazon said is used by 10 million kids, was only available on Amazon devices like the Fire Tablet. FreeTime includes access to a library of kid-friendly, shows, movies, books and other things. The service prevents kids from buying things on their devices and restricts access to social media.

Amazon declined to comment on a potential iOS expansion for FreeTime, so it is unclear if the service will be available on iPhones and iPads any time soon.

FreeTime includes a free version and a paid one. Like all things Amazon, the paid version includes benefits for Prime members. For a single child it is $4.99 a month, or $2.99 for Prime members. For a family with four children the service costs $9.99 per month, or $6.99 for Prime members.

Last month Amazon announced a pair of new FreeTime features — Discussion Cards and Parents Dashboard — to help parents understand, monitor and relate to their kids’ entertainment.
