Starting today, parents in India will be able to download the app from the Apple App Store. The app will be available in the Google Play Store by the end of the week.
Messenger Kids is a video chat and messaging app that helps kids connect with friends and family in a fun, parent-controlled space. The company in a press release said that they continue to consult child safety advocates and educators to ensure a service that balances parental control with features that help kids learn how to connect responsibly online.
Messenger Kids is full of features for kids. Once their account is set up by a parent, kids can start a one-on-one or group video chat. The home screen shows them at a glance who they are connected with to, and when those contacts are online. 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.
