Google has introduced Purchase Requests, a new method that enables parents to supervise their children's purchases. New buying alternatives have been added to the company's revised support website.

"If you are the family manager in the family group, you may select the parameters for purchase clearance for any family member," according to the company's website. It further said, "if you are a parent in the family group, you can select the purchase permission settings for family members whose accounts are controlled using Family Link."

Go to the website to configure the approval parameters. Choose a kid. Select Purchase & download approvals under Controls > Content Restrictions > Google Play. Select the kind of purchase authorization you wish to grant.

You have the authority to accept or reject requests for material from Google Play, thanks to Google. The family manager receives an email receipt when a transaction is completed through Google Play's billing system. You can manage approvals for recommended apps you download in Google Kids Space separately in the Google Kids Space settings.
