How to Set Up Filters

First, open the Google Home app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Scroll down and select the smart speaker or display you would like to control.

Tap the device you want.

Next, tap the gear icon in the top right to open the Settings.

Select to “Notifications & Digital Wellbeing.”

Select "Notifications and Digital Wellbeing."

Finally, tap “Digital Wellbeing.” You’ll be guided through a couple of splash screens if this is your first time.

Tap "Digital Wellbeing" and follow steps.

You’ll first be asked to choose who you want the Filters to apply to. You can select one of the two options here:

  • Everyone: Everyone.
  • Only Supervised Accounts and Guests: “Supervised Accounts” are accounts set up under Family Link to be supervised. “Guests” are any people not recognized by Voice Match.

Choose people to include.

Next, select any other devices you’d like to apply Filters to, and then tap “Next.”

Select devices and tap "Next."

First up is Videos. You can allow any video, choose certain types of videos, or block all videos. Tap “Next” after making a selection.

Video filters.

Next is Music. Again, you can allow all music, pick only non-explicit music from certain sources, or block all music. Tap “Next” after your selection.

Music filters.

The next screen gives you the option to block news and podcasts if you’d like.

News and podcasts filters.

Lastly, you can block the ability to make calls, restrict the answers Google Assistant can give, allow only “family friendly actions,” and block websites on smart displays.

Additional filters.

That’s it!
