Facebook first launched Messenger Kids in the US at end of 2017. Recently, the social network opened it up to 70 more countries.
At the time of writing this post, the Philippines is yet not on the list. Of course, it will eventually become available in our country. After all, Filipinos are the world’s top social network users.
Messenger Kids comes with new features to make the app safer for our children, including Supervised Friending, Approved Adults, and Easier Connections.
- In Supervised Friending, kids can now add and accept new contact invitations. Parents are notified if they do with the option to override it.
- Approved Adults allows parents to grant specific people the ability to add their children to groups. The feature is primarily for teachers to use for school activities.
- With Easier Connections, parents can choose to make their child’s name and profile photo visible to select groups.
Messenger Kids is available for download by select countries on the Google Play Store, the App Store, and the Amazon Appstore.
