Facebook Messenger Kids app gets Sleep Mode

YouTube Kids app gets better parental controls finally

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

Facebook has always remained in question to providing donations or some sort of financial assistance to some of the advisors who have been supportive towards its Messenger Kids app. There is a special control panel available for the Kids app which allows the parents to add and remove contacts to chat with their Children. Now, the Messenger Kids has received a new feature called Sleep Mode. For example, a good use of this feature would be during the study hours or dinner time, etc.

Google announced late Wednesday it will give parents more control over the videos appearing in their account and on their device, by limiting the videos displayed to those reviewed by human being employees.

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.

Beginning this week, parents will be able to select "trusted channels" and topics that their children can access on the app, like "Sesame Workshop" or "learning", that have been curated by people at YouTube Kids and its partners.

Parents are able to access all controls of Messenger Kids via the main Facebook app. They also cannot use the camera, or receive notifications. Child health experts the world over have written to Facebook to withdraw the app designed specifically for children under the age of 13. After tapping on the name of the child, you'll need to tap on "Sleep Mode" in the App Controls.

During the Sleep Mode, if a Child tries to access this Messenger Kids app, he will see a message that the app is in sleep mode and ask him to come later. Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment. Messenger Kids application is absolutely for free and you can download the app for both, iOS and Android platform for free.
