One of the biggest struggles of modern-day parents is keeping their kids away from video games the entire day. As Microsoft works in favor of parents, the company constantly comes up with new tools for parents to keep control of how much time they spend using Xbox/PC, and what they do.

The freshest parental control feature that Microsoft has introduced is Screen Time for Xbox One. As this feature is already present in Windows 10, parents who already have experience working with this feature will find it easy to get around on Xbox One.

For those who aren’t familiar with Screen Time, this feature allows you to set a daily time allowance and limits on the web for each of your children. You’re able to set a specific time range for every day of the week and your child will be able to browse the web only during allowed hours.

“Parental controls are a huge priority for us at Microsoft, as we strive to offer the most comprehensive and customizable family features possible so gamers of all ages feel safe and secure when using our platforms. That’s why the family timer we know and love is coming to Xbox One as screen time, updated for today’s digital family.”

This feature will come to everyone with the Creators Update for Xbox One. For now, only users of Xbox One Insider Program are able to try it.
