Parent Control: Allow apps to be used without charging the screentime


I am missing a key feature in parent control.

i would like to allow the usage of spotify or learning apps on the cell-phone, without that the screentime is getting charged. If the kid want to listen music on spotify or want to learn with mobile apps, the screentime is getting charged, which was normally planned for free usage like social media, ....

Any chance that such a feature might come soon?

  • Another example for this - my family uses WhatsUp as primary communication channel, but child is blocked to use it when he consumes all screen time. Also specified education apps/web pages would be nice to be 'allowed'. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I have the same concern and it is not the first time it is posted in the forum (there is a similar entry September 2021 :

    The parental control is quite useless without this feature.

    Is there something in roadmap to improve it? Expected date?

    Thank You;
