Facebook has recently rolled out its new app Messenger for kids to the market. The main aim here is to keep the eye on your children’s activities and save them from predator threats. I am going to list out the pros and cons for this app.

PROS

  • Parents have to install the app to the kid’s phone and kids can chat only with the contacts which parents approve.
  • No phone number is required for sign up.
  • Parents can control the kid’s contact.
  • It’s easy to monitor kid’s messages.
  • The parent can set a use limit for a particular session.
  • Facebook does not display any type of ads or in-app purchases.

CONS

  • Only one child can contact to another child. It does not allow parents to chat with the kids.
  • Few users have complained about the bad call quality.
  • You have to have a mobile device to use this app. It can not be used on chrome book or any browser. Suppose you have two kids then you need two separate devices for them.
  • You can not add multiple kid’s accounts in one device.

These are the my review for the Facebook’s new app “Messenger for kids“.
