The tablet runs on Google’s Android operating system, giving it some advanced features such as voice search. It has access to Google’s collection of apps including Chrome and Google Maps. It also has some of the same software as the first hudl such as BlinkBox, allowing the user to purchase or rent films. The Hudl 2 comes with new e-reader software for viewing e-books.
The Hudl 2 is a family tablet. Their dedicated child safety app comes bundled in an attempt to achieve this goal. This app lets a user create a separate account for each user and limits accessible web content based on the user's age range. Other features of the child safety app include being able to control the amount of time users are allowed to use the device each day and the ability to block entire apps from users.
