Facebook's Messenger Kids is getting a sleep mode

Setting up the account for each child will give parents the option of setting limits to what videos can be displayed and played.

For giving more control to the parents, Facebook has recently launched kids messenger app. Facebook's Messenger app for Kids gives parents the control over who their kids talk to.

Parents have told us that they like how Messenger Kids allows them to fully control the contact list and check in on their child's messaging as they're learning to navigate the digital world.

As far as what happens when sleep mode is activated, the app won't deliver notifications, kids won't be able to send or receive messages, and they won't be able to access the app's camera functionality, either. The new "sleep mode" feature will give the parents the ability to set designated daily "off times" when Messenger Kids will go to sleep. For example, a good use of this feature would be during the study hours or dinner time, etc.

The app is created to be installed on a child's device, with the parent able to control settings from their own Facebook account.

It's simple to use, and while you can go in and adjust the times at any time, you can also just set it and forget it so you don't have to worry about constantly monitoring and changing the controls for the app.


Facebook and Facebook's Messenger Kids app icons are displayed on an iPhone in NY on February 16, 2018.

YouTube Kids was introduced in 2015 for children of preschool age and older, and it says it has more than 11 million weekly viewers. Even if the kid tries to open the app while it in "sleep mode", a message will pop up telling him/her to come back later.

Stay tuned with us to know more of such beneficial innovations of Facebook and other tech leaders of the industry.

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.

What do you think of the idea of Messenger Kids in general?
