China is coming between kids and online games, restricting children to playing online games to only three hours per work, continuing the Chinese government’s tech industry crackdown.

A notice from China’s National Press and Publication Administration says that starting September 1st, minors can only play online games between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Fridays, weekends and public holidays. There actually already a limit in place that was set in 2019, but it was more generous, allowing minors to play online games for an hour and a half per day and three hours on public holidays. China’s tech sector crackdown comes amid concerns that those companies may have an outsized influence on society. (Associated Press)
