Switching profiles - the only issue 3/5
I like the app - I just wish that it didn’t hang up so long when trying to switch between kid profiles. We find it either doesn’t switch or the program hangs mid switch.
Everything else works great.

Really wish parents could delete messages 2/5
I love the app only wish there was a way the parent could delete old messages or any message from the child’s app I love that the kid can’t delete messages just wish the parents could
I am very happy that everything is doing great developers u are amazing
Yay 😀! 5/5
I’m so happy 😀 that this app is so well made! I will say everything I like about it, it keeps me safe, cool 😎 stickers, funny 😆 filters, amazing 😉 gifs, can’t send inappropriate things, and you know who is online! 💬💬💬 There is a new filter almost every 1:00 🕐 am, that makes me happy 😃 because you can get bored 😑 from all the other ones ☝🏻.
These are the things I don’t like about this app, there are some inappropriate stickers and gifs, there are not any more missions after you do five 🖐🏻 of them, and sometimes I don’t get messages 💬 or calls 📱 notifications for a long time.
This app I rate all five stars ✨ just because there are way more good things than bad things on this app. Please 🙏🏻, just some more missions, better notification system, and look 👀 at the stickers closely before putting them on the app.

Messenger kids🙄👎🏽 1/5

More mission needed but lots of fun 5/5
When my mom started letting me text I was all the time but I want more missions
This app is soooo cool cause you can message your parents or kids and you can add emojis and face stuff and it's really cool for sending pictures and now I can talk to my daughter if she is at her friends or even I can face time her thank you so very much for making this app🐤😛
I am downloading it 5/5
By alyssa 1234567
I am downloading the game write now and I think I am going to have a blast
Very impressed 5/5
I am 5th grader and I am very pleased with how you can talk to your friends and how you can just be your self.
Be aware of men!! 1/5
The big issue I found, there was a grown man creating a child account and requested my child! There is no button to report this on my end, only accept or delete the request. This needs a report button! I am so glad it has to be approved by me and she can’t accept it. 😡
This is a great app 4/5
This is very nice for me I have a iPod touch and you can text but this was a lot easier to use than texting also this lets me talk to my friend in Arizona also I love to Video chat people this app is great ps I’m 10 and it is very helpfull
Messaged kids 2/5
You need to make it better because it gets boring after a while
Inappropriate content, parents do read 4/5
This has inappropriate content. I found whilst exploring the app that you can download sticker packs. For example, the sticker pack dance party has someone inappropriately dancing in it. Another has the abbreviation “nsfw,” another inappropriate bit in this app. Please take this into consideration programmers, and take the time to look over ALL stickers. And lastly, another sticker pack has 2 guy otters whom are nuzzling each other noses.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Please help! 1/5
By single mom91
I’ve been trying to get this app on my son’s tablet but it always logs me out and ask me to re-log back in! I have already reset my phone and his tablet and nothing seems to work! I heard this a very good app to use and would love to use it!
Not available in my region 1/5
Tried to authorize my account, but I get a message stating this app is not available in my region. Why not? I have FB Messenger over here. It shouldn’t be downloadable if I can’t use it.
Sleep Mode is Broken 1/5
By GO KNIGHTS!
Once you set the sleep mode time it cannot be changed. Although the settings says I turned off sleep mode, the app still goes into sleep mode. It cannot be turned off or the timing adjusted. The settings can be changed, but the app does not recognize the settings change.
Really cool 5/5
The fonts and filters are amazing
By sunset awesome
I love this app it is only my first day with it and it is my favorite app on my phone!
I don’t understand why my child can send me GIFs but I can’t send them back to him. That is something that should be fixed.
Limited region scope 2/5
Please have this available all across asia. Thanks!
I love this app 5/5
So I love this app bc my iMessage used to not work so I used this app a lot and I had a lot of experience having it so I think it’s ready for a update if you don’t have this app then get it for your kids!!
Love it! Great job! 5/5
I love Messanger Kids, I really do. At first my mom and dad didn’t want me with regular texting and having to get a phone number/email for that. I was anxious to text (for reasons I keep to myself) so I was randomly searching on App Store and found this awesome app!! My mom agreed to let me have it and now I can text. But I do have some suggestions along with this review I’m writing.
-Imagine this: Person 1 just got messanger kids, but wants to text Person 2 who does not have Messanger kids, but has regular texting. So I wish Person 2 could text Person 1 with regular texting, not having to get the actual app. (Basically only one person has to have Messanger kids to text another with regular texting)
-When someone sends a video to you, you have the option to save it to your camera roll.
That’s it! Please consider these suggestions.
P.s.— My mom has a question. How do you put this app to sleep??
Adding friends without adding them to my facebook 4/5
I love love love this app!! My girls are 7 and learning to spell!! This app is great for that! I love that I know every message my daughters send and receive. I LOVE that they can now text family and video chat anytime they want!! I love seeing the messages of my family talking to my girls. The only thing is I really wish I could add ‘strangers’ to my girls’ messenger. Of course they really are not strangers to us but they are not people I have on my facebook. My facebook has kind of become a sanctuary that I don’t always add everyone in my life too. But I still want my daughters to have open communication with them. 🦋
The app is amazing but it’s a little upsetting because my brother tried to challenge me to play basketball games with him. He uses the regular version of messenger but when he challenged me the game would not even pop up. When I click in play it was like I was poking the screen for my excitement
Actual messenger app doesn’t let you send gifs to kids, but the kids have the option to send them
Only works on phone 2/5
This app works great on my iPhone X. But it does not work well with the iPad mini 2 or iPad, both of which my kids primarily use. We thought this was a great option for kids to send pictures make the faces of all the fun stuff that it offers. But the Facebook images from context don’t load and either the other two devices nor do the GIFs or stickers. So unless I let my kids use it on my phone, this app is worthless. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have also done hard restarts on both of the devices. If those could be fixed it would be great as the parental controls are great.
Good idea but can be improved. 2/5
By Sami Family
I really wanted to love this since Facebook Messenger has been so useful to me to communicate with friends-family around the world without who aren’t iPhone users. Anyway, this app would have allowed my kids to send messages to these same family-friends. But I agree with another parent about the lack of push notifications. My kid has missed several video chat requests and messages because there was no notifications. If it weren’t for the app’s badge icon changing numbers, we’d never know about them. Please enable allow push notifications like in regular Facebook Messenger and I may bump up my star rating.
Why not worldwide? 1/5
We recently moved to the USA from Australia. Found this app great for kids to communicate with their <10yo friends here but the app is not available in Australia! It’s a first world country, same level of technology - and in some areas better - but Facebook won’t offer this app in the Australian iTunes Store.
iPod Touch notification needed 3/5
I like but notifications do not work on the iPod Touch. Any support help would be great.
Won’t let me send links 3/5
I love the app it is awesome and very helpful but it will not let me send links to people so if you could please update that is would be very helpful
Notifications Problems 3/5
The app works fine, but there is no way to turn on notifications on if you accidentally click no when you are first asked.
1 star 1/5

THIS IS CRAAAAAAPPPPPP
By kk dounut buns
You would think this bad app but not you get to texted friends and fam that you’re parents divide you can text or FaceTime and can make groups so you can FaceTime more than five people you can hate it all you want but try it first still don’t like it well not my problem
Doesn’t work 1/5
After I log in, it just goes back to the “get started” screen. It’s an endless loop.
So cool 5/5
By hockey girl🏑🥅🏒
I love it so much because you can do photos and call people like friends
Not really cool 5/5
So it’s fun the need more faces on it on the pics they lie to everyone in the hole world who has its they need a unicorn for sure they need the faces that are on the pice that is not cool that they lied to people nobody wants people who lie
It has filters!!! 4/5
By i luv pizza alot!!!!
It’s super fun with the filters! It feels like Snapchat! But safer. When have internet u can still do filters but can’t text.
Also, u can unlock different badges! It’s awesome!
The thing I don’t like is u get different filters from Facebook messanger. But u can still text people from Facebook messagener.
Good for kids 4/5
My 8 year old really enjoys being able to talk to his grandparents whenever he wants, however, I wish there were more controls on a contact level. If you want to “snooze” someone for a day or week or restrict talk time of a certain contact, so I wouldn’t have to take his device away when spending too much time talking to friends.
I don’t know how good this app is because in setting it up on an iPhone SE or a 5s, it won’t let me get past the “Things we want you to know” screen.
Perfect!! But just one thing 5/5
Hi I’m a child who loves this app, and its truly amazing!! I have a very close friend who watched my videos on YouTube. The only way we could chat was between comments and school. also was my close friend had a Samsung and I had a apple, so basically it was impossible to chat. My mom was scrolling through Facebook and found this app. My close friend and I had a playdate and my mom told close friends mom about the app. Her mom downloaded the app and then we could talk to each other! But there’s just one thing that I wish this app had ..........
Sometimes we don’t see our texts or calls for hours or even days! Still love this app sincerely, child
Great for keeping in contact & 1st step to independence 5/5
By Ukulele Mama
Finally an app that lets my kids, on their own, safely be in contact with friends and family. (Especially with older siblings in college or have moved out and away) Also, a great app for parents to always be in contact with their kids (especially older kids with special needs) and let them practice navigating the outside world (go places) on their own, with help if they need it, within arm’s reach. Kids feel safe and secure, and independence, and parents have peace of mind leaving their kid to experience and explore the world. Kudos.
Can’t use it 1/5
Not available in my region?
Deleting messages? 3/5
I couldn’t find a way to erase a message the my daughters Gg sent by mistake. I even removed Gg and then re added her and the message was still there. Is there a way for parents to clear the messages? I finally just made her a new account completely.
I tried to use messenger kids to contact a friend, I couldn’t even finish making my account! I couldn’t finish reading the terms and conditions because it wouldn’t let me continue!
I love it 5/5
By save the animals lives
I could not wait to open the app I was so exited.when I opened the app and did the work I noticed you could face time and call people who you have on Facebook I also saw a button on the left the looked like a face so I pressed it and it was putting filters on me and some of them made me laugh my favorite one was the deer/doe with gold glasses on that looked so cute I wish I could still use the filter and another thing I liked was you could take photos and it would be on your gallery and you could add things to them but the only problem is their needs to be a button to where I can use a photo I already have as my pic so I don’t have to take a photo of something that I don’t want to use cause I have snap photos of things that I would like to use. Other wise this is a great app I would recommend it to every one ages 6 or 7 years and up!
Love this app! 5/5
I go this app for my son and we both love! He gets to send messages he wants and I get to know that it is safe with people and friends I trust. The only draw back is the stickers he can download. He found out I can send Lego and Pixar stickers and he can’t. Is there any way possible that he can have access to the same stickers?
Rip off 1/5
This is a rip off of snap chat. Snap chat can do everything this can and has better rating
I mean why not just give the kid normal messenger
I’m not the kind of person who goes outside so I don’t mind kids staying on it 247 but just use normal messenger if you think about getting this
