Messenger Kids App

A fun, free app that lets kids video call and message parent-approved family and friends from their iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. With Messenger Kids: Parents Have More Control • Parents fully control the contact list making it a safer, more controlled environment of just close friends and family. • Messages don't disappear and can't be hidden in case parents would like to check in. • There are no ads or in-app purchases, and the app is free to download. Kids Have More Fun • Kid-appropriate stickers, GIFs, frames and emojis help kids creatively express themselves. • One-on-one or group video calls come to life with fun, interactive masks. • The feature-filled camera lets kids create videos and decorate photos to share with loved ones. It's Easy to Use • Works on iPad, iPod touch and iPhone on the go or just using a Wi-Fi connection. No phone number is needed. • Parents and approved grown-ups can connect from their Messenger app wherever it's installed. Additional Information • Creating a Messenger Kids account for a child does not create a Facebook account for them. • Parents and guardians use their own Facebook accounts to authorize their kids' Messenger Kids accounts. • Parents control their child’s contact list and can remove contacts at any time. • Kids have the option to report or block contacts and report inappropriate content. If a child submits a report, their parent or guardian will be notified. • We're always working to improve Messenger Kids. If you'd like to share any feedback with us or for more information, visit

  • Awesome app 5/5

    By Pupyprincess101
    I wanted to talk to my mom when she was at work so we used email but we realized that took to long. So we downloaded messenger kids because I wasn’t allowed to have a Facebook account. And let me tell u it is awesome you can video chat your friends and family and you can text them to you can also make groups and earn badges. This app is awesome.

  • Please fix Notifications!! 3/5

    By Kaytay11
    Great App for the kids but annoying that it constantly says to turn on notifications- THEY ARE ON! And the only way to get the notification to stop appearing is to respond to every message even if the person is no longer active
  • Too much control 1/5

    By GRev123
    Really? I do not think parents should have THIS much control over their kids.
  • Everwing 4/5

    By mope ope
    Add the game everwing to kids messanger
  • “Not available in your region” 1/5

    By Ssaeed323
    Says not available in your region but I’m in the US...
  • What about the only children in this world? 4/5

    By girl of fire %100 ❤️
    I have looked at the most recent update and It is great but 1 thing Is weird to me. I have noticed You have sunglasses for big sister little sister big brother etc. i’m perfectly fine with that this is the one thing that concerns me noticed that you have no sunglasses/hats for only children that is weird because you are not letting only children take cool photos
  • Love it 5/5

    By Chloenluke
    We just set up an account today and loving it so far. I accidentally created my first child’s account using my name. Is there anyway I can delete that?
  • Worst app on my phone! 1/5

    By Mommahatesherjob
    This app is the worst app on my phone. My parents downloaded it on my phone and I opened it and saw little monsters. I just older than ten and this app has very immature features. Monsters, animals, GIFs and more. And none of them are for my age. My parents are over protective and I am sick of it. Less childish features, the more I will use this app. Trust me. Anyone over eight wanting to purchase this app, Im warning you, dont get this. Also texting app for kids? They should ask for a trip to the park or go to a trampline park! They dont want to remember their childhood of getting over 2 hours of electronic time.
  • Love this app!!! 5/5

    By Hoping to be Mommy of 4
    My kids can text our family without the worry of sending a text to someone that isn’t approved by me. And the effects are so fun. Highly recommend!!!
  • I LOVE IT BUT PLZ READ!!!! 5/5

    By kfireninja
    This app is amazing!!!! I love it 👍🏼 Could you plz add more colors though for the display. Also plz let us choose the colors separately for the text bubbles and display I wish I could make mine white but it’s not in the color options😄 Thank you for giving us a safer option
  • Not available in my region? 1/5

    By Jane_UnderHill
    This is messed up why is it not available in my region? His is for kids it should be for EVERY Reigon 👎😡
  • Amazing!!! 4/5

    By Paws421
    I love this app so much!! The effects are so much fun!! I am military kid and I had made really good friends and it was pretty hard to move away from them. It feels awesome to be able to call them without having to use my mom's tablet and account. Only one thing that was not entirely good about it, I can't voice call my friends. Because I moved, we have different time zones, sometimes it's a little late for my friend and we used to voice call, but now that we can't I have to turn off my camera and I can't call her as if I were using a real phone, I have to either plug in my earbuds or just keep her on speaker phone and it gets a little anoyying. I really really love this app, but that would just make it a bit better. Also, when I am in a different app, my friends can't see me and I can't see them. If that could change, that would be awesome. Also, this is to people who think that this app is bad for kids, I am 11 and I go outside for hours everyday and I still get in touch with my friends almost every day! I highly recommend this app to kids 4+ especially military, because I know from experience that it cab be heartbreaking to move away from friends and this gives them a chance to stay in touch with them and family!
  • Stopped Working Properly 2/5

    By Applebright
    This was an awesome app for a few days, but all of a sudden, after the message notification appears and then opening the app to chat, the message that has just been sent to my daughter has disappeared. She can only see her friend’s messages as notifications, but not within the actual app. I tried sending chats from me to her and the same things happens, where she can only view her own chat messages, but not those of her contacts. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, using it on two different phones and an iPad, but it still doesn’t work. Too bad!
  • Why Facebook account? 4/5

    By oegamerhq
    What if your parents don’t have Facebook? What do you do? I am an 11 year old boy and don’t get me wrong here, this is a great app and I love using it but why Facebook? But still I love the features and stuff like that. So I’m going with a solid 4 stars. My parents do have Facebook so I’m ok but like why do Facebook? Good app solid 4 stars ps good app😁
  • Messagemazing 5/5

    By Messagemazing
    Awsome game
  • Problems 3/5

    By Kauville
    When do we get new missions because I have waited and still nothing
  • Love it 5/5

    By Amber (German)
    Love it!!!! I love that the parents can “control” the kids cause you don’t want YOUR kids to be talking to the boyfriends,girlfriends,or even some stranger. Well here’s the bad news, half of people’s friends can even go in this. BUT I LOVE IT!!
  • The app is amazing 5/5

    By Maddogmady586
    Wow so amazing
  • Great app 5/5

    By vyyjfuyfyhi
    Really good app for kids to have fun and be safe at the same time ! I highly recommend it ❤️
  • Ogdila 4/5

    By RNygaard
    Of course that would be a “review”. For most, hopefully, this is an app to stay in touch with grandparents or aunts and uncles who aren’t always within a short car ride. It isn’t meant for children searching the internet for chat buddies. Good grief, helicopter parent. That being said, I’m glad this is available for my child to stay in touch and her every evening good nights to distant grandparents. Very easy interface for those of us a bit far behind on technology!
  • 👌👌 5/5

    By 12/24/05
    I wish that you didn't have to get onto the app to text! I wish that you had the icon on the side so whenever someone texted you didn't have to leave the other app you're on! Please update it!! Thanks☺️☺️
  • It doesn't work in Puerto Rico 1/5

    By Hatarz99
    Doesn't work in Puerto Rico
  • Big problem 1/5

    By Brycecool95
    Why don't u let messenger kids have the features like groups and storys
  • Kids can’t add other kids. 5/5

    By Dodgey123
    I got this app because my 7 year-old wants to video chat with her 10 year-old cousin. Both kids have this app, but they cannot add each other because both of their profiles are managed through adult accounts. A feature should be added where children can request to add each other via parental approval.
  • Request 4/5

    By AmyTyee
    Please give authorize in Myanmar 🇲🇲 🙏🙏🙏
  • i am 9 years old 5/5

    By Alyisa charles

  • Great! 5/5

    By Clover 7
    So, this is very helpful and just a great overall a good app. One suggestion is that you could add nicknames that are changeable too? Just wondering.. thanks.
  • Love it 5/5

    By ClintB
    A safe place to let kids text, video chat, and interact. I'm using it to keep in touch with my niece and she uses it to message friends silly picture! Lots of fun. Perfect idea.
  • Do not hit this app 1/5

    By soccergiirl7
    I am a kid righting this so I just won’t to say that this app is a ripoff of Snapchat do not hit it just get Snapchat it has better stuff in all.
  • What about the other parent/parents family? 4/5

    By Taylor189
    So far I love this app. I guess the only complaint I have with this app is that I have to be friends with someone before it will allow me to add them to talk to my child. That’s frustrating for me especially because I don’t get alone with the other parent or the family, but it would be nice she can talk with them. I don’t want to be friends with them on fb.
  • Makes Me Mad 👎🏼😡😡😡😠😡😠😡🤬🤬🤬 1/5

    By Blackraven100
    I’m a kid. And I think that it’s unfair that I have to ask my parents for everything on the internet. I hate having to go through all of the security measures. Like here. Parents get control of everything.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By sprinkled hershey
    This app doesn’t work, it is absolutely horrible and terrible app! I HATE IT!!!
  • Region not available 1/5

    By Manambrym
    Unfortunately after we downloaded this app we found out our region ,the pacific, cannot use it. Lame.
  • Link to add contacts does not work! 1/5

    By Queesa
    I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Would be nice if we could actually get the request to add link to work. Our 4 year old would be thrilled to chat with all her family in Canada! Otherwise, it’s just useless.
  • Disappointing notification 3/5

    By tmcnulty
    I downloaded this for my daughter on her tablet to keep in contact with family but she has no idea when someone is trying to call her. It doesn’t show up like normal messenger where it covers your screen.. all there is is a small ding and a drop down that last 2 seconds...I’ve looked everywhere to see if it can be changed and there is no setting to do so..disappointing.
  • Portrait mode only 3/5

    By xrobotlovex
    It's frustrating that it's locked in portrait mode because my daughters iPad only rests in its case in landscape mode. Her grandparents all live very far away and I love that she can call them when she wants, but the app is not all that user friendly.
  • Misguided approach 1/5

    By Dhefgaming
    If you want your kids spending more time on their phones while selling their data to Facebook then this is a great app.
  • So fun to connect with relatives! 5/5

    By cslowik
    My daughter loves having her own special place to connect with her cousins across the country, and her grandparents.
  • This is just wrong 1/5

    By Name1466
    Younger children are not old enough to navigate the complexities of online relationships, which can lead to misunderstandings and conflicts even among more mature users. They also do not have a fully developed understanding of privacy, including what’s appropriate to share with others and who has access to their conversations, pictures, and videos. At a time when there is mounting concern about how social media use affects adolescents’ wellbeing, it is particularly irresponsible to encourage children as young as preschoolers to start using a Facebook product. Social media use by teens is linked to significantly higher rates of depression, and adolescents who spend an hour a day chatting on social networks report less satisfaction with nearly every aspect of their lives. Eighth graders who use social media for 6-9 hours per week are 47% more likely to report they are unhappy than their peers who use social media less often. This app will increase the amount of time pre-school and elementary age kids spend with digital devices. Already, adolescents report difficulty moderating their own social media use: 78% check their phones at least hourly, and 50% say they feel addicted to their phones. Almost half of parents say that regulating their child’s screen time is a constant battle. Messenger Kids will exacerbate this problem, as the anticipation of friends’ responses will be a powerful incentive for children to check – and stay on – a phone or tablet. Encouraging kids to move their friendships online will interfere with and displace the face-to-face interactions and play that are crucial for building healthy developmental skills, including the ability to read human emotion, delay gratification, and engage with the physical world.
  • So safe and AWESOME!!! 5/5

    By Miss Un1cornia
    I’m a kid and me and my friends have this app!! I love it! It’s wonderful that the parents can control it and see their kids messages!
