Facebook brings sleep mode to Messenger Kids providing more control to Parents

During sleep mode, they won't be able to receive or send messages, neither will they have access to video calls. Once you set the limits, the child will not be able to use the app during those hours.

Facebook and Facebook's Messenger Kids app icons are displayed on an iPhone in NY on February 16, 2018. Any attempt to open Messenger Kids will be met with a message telling the child the app is in sleep mode and that they should come back later. The app was launched for iOS platform in the December month and soon to the Android platform.

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.

Facebook Messenger Kids was the only app allowing parents to take full control of their Children's online behaviour and tracking down their activities. In addition to sleep mode, parents can add and remove contacts, delete the child's account, or create a new account right from the control panel.

The Google-owned app said in a blog post on Wednesday that parents would also have the option to restrict video recommendations to channels that have been "verified" by YouTube Kids, avoiding the broader sea of content that the app pulls from the main YouTube site through algorithms and other automated processes. It doesn't have numerous features of a regular Facebook account, such as a News Feed, a "like" button, or advertising. The app is there to make the kids more productive and this is how they can improve and build up good idea within their minds. Tap on the child's name, and then on "Sleep Mode" in the App Controls section. For example, you could prevent your kids from using the app after 8pm on weekdays when they should be sleeping or doing their homework. "For those parents who want even more control over the videos and channels in the YouTube Kids app, we're rolling out a feature later this year that will allow parents to specifically handpick every video and channel available to their child in the app".
