Facebook launches Messenger App for users below the age 13


According to the reports ogre of Social media Facebook on Monday announced the launch of a new version of its popular chat app Messenger named Messenger Kids for children Below The Age Of 13. The new chat app has been designed primarily for children with a number of parental control features bundled in. The app does not require a Facebook account — due to federal law, users under the age of 13 cannot legally sign up for Facebook.

Messenger Kids is a standalone app that lives on kids‘ tablets or smartphones but can be controlled from a parent’s Facebook account. Whether it’s using video chat to talk to grandparents, staying in touch with cousins who live far away, or sending mom a decorated photo while she’s working late to say hi, Messenger Kids opens up a new world of online communication to families. Plus, it’s FUN for kids to use!

In addition to video chat, kids can send photos, videos or text messages to their parent-approved friends and adult relatives, who will receive the messages via their regular Messenger app. A library of kid-appropriate and specially chosen GIFs, frames, stickers, masks and drawing tools lets them decorate content and express their personalities.

Parents are in full control of who their child interacts with on Messenger Kids. Parents can use their main Facebook app to control kids accounts and contacts through the Messenger Kids Controls panel.
