Great for not-quite teens 4/5
My 11yo daughter loves being able to talk to friends and family on her device, but I’m not a huge fan of her being able to delete messages or hide things. I feel like this is a great option for kids who are old enough to use a messaging program, but not quite old enough to be trusted to make great decisions 100% of the time. My only request is being able to have multiple parental controllers - our blended family has 3 individuals who should be able to monitor her account.
Why on earth would kids need a messenger app? I downloaded it and checked it out and it seems pretty cool and safe for them, but I mean why do they need to have this? If anything you guys at Facebook should be making better apps for the grownups. I’ve requested an actual FB Lite or at least messenger Lite app for iPhone users and get nothing. That “Friendly” for Facebook app is good, but not good enough. I have an iPhone SE, so it’s not an old or low quality phone, but it does only have 16GB of storage and just the Facebook app alone takes up WAY too much space, add in Messenger and basically all my storage for other things is filled up. Please consider making those “Lite” versions for all phones and stop wasting time on silly apps for kids. Or at least take the size of the already existing apps and cut them way back.

You are just doing it wrong 1/5
Why would you not leave the children alone? Let them experience others physically in real life. Isn’t it right to let the kid interact with the world around, smell, touch, and make memories for the journey of a lifetime? Instead of affecting the kid’s mind at the age they are most vulnerable and make the next generation more dependent on texting and being remote? You are just doing it wrong.
I know, it makes scenes, I want money too, no really I do understand, I don’t blame you for reaching out to get more “hit” on your apps, but please leave the children out of it and maybe, just maybe, their parents are not yet lost their senses to let their kids get addicted to texting, even if they will eventually, but I am wishing some joyful experience for all the kids, enough real memories for them to carry through their entire unreal and digital life.
I ask parents, would you like your children remember texting when they were kids? Or swimming, running, smelling air and... because let me tell you this, this device you are holding will be dominant and will cover all the other memories when they look back.
No way to put in words... 5/5
I love this app it is AMAZING it has everything a kid could possibly want👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

Does not have the option just for calling with no video 4/5
By Popotitos 1
It would be perfect if it had the option to call without video
I love this app 5/5
I like this app because it is like the best thing ever because it is like kids first social media app and I think it’s super safe because your parents have to sign in with their Facebook account and I think they can see everything you do
Would like to be able to respond with stickers 4/5
I really like the idea of this. But I would like to be able to send or respond to my child’s message with stickers. I only have keyboard and keyboard emojis available.
Unsafe fort kids 1/5
Way too eay for children to sign up without parents' knowledge. They just have to setup a fake adult profile then give permission using this to sign up for this app. Kids are much smarter than you give them credit fort. That also means prestigious can do the same process to try to hook up with unsuspecting kids. This app needs to be eliminated.
Super app 5/5
Love the app for the ability to manage contacts for kids!
