Protect your family in the digital and physical worlds with Microsoft Family Safety
The new Microsoft Family Safety app will help families protect their loved ones by providing them with useful tools and analytics to build useful online and real-world habits. This is the only application that allows you to manage screen time on Windows 10 PCs, Android devices and the Xbox. It helps keep the peace of mind when the children are away.

Presenter Coach listens to the tone of your voice and, in real time, offers you to make your speech more emotional, while also helping with grammar and giving tips on how to make sentences more literate.
