  • Facebook brings sleep mode to Messenger Kids providing more control to Parents

In the time since its arrival on iOS in December, the app has graduated to Android, but on that same day a report emerged highlighting how numerous "experts" who had vetted the original Messenger Kids app were funded by Facebook. Sleep mode is controlled from the Parent Control center in the parent's Facebook account and the "off times" can be changed at any time. When the app is in Sleep Mode, kids can not send or receive messages or video calls, play with the creative camera or receive notifications.

During the Sleep Mode, if a Child tries to access this Messenger Kids app, he will see a message that the app is in sleep mode and ask him to come later.

Parents provided feedback to Facebook regarding Messenger Kids that controls to make the app inaccessible during times like dinner or bedtime. Kids love the recommended videos in the app-and parents have told us they are also interested in more ways to personalize the app for their specific style. "Once you set the limits, the child will not be able to use the app during those hours", Govindarajan wrote.




Moreover, the child will get a warning 10 minutes before the "sleep mode" activates so that he/she can finish and wind up any ongoing conversations on the app.

Parents can use this feature by enabling this feature from their accounts. You can set different times for weekdays versus weekends.

YouTube Kids was introduced in 2015 for children of preschool age and older, and it says it has more than 11 million weekly viewers. Messenger Kids application is absolutely for free and you can download the app for both, iOS and Android platform for free. As anybody who uses Facebook regularly likely knows, having instant access to your friends and family can be an addictive experience - it's easy to unintentionally spend more time chatting with your pals than doing something more productive. Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment.
