Facebook Messenger Kids comes to Android via Google Play

Messenger Kids arrives on Android as latest Facebook controversy

Unlike the main Messenger app, this kids version doesn't require them to have a Facebook account or a mobile number to sign up. It should be available in the Google Play store at some point today.

Potential intentions aside, others have expressed concerns that hooking kids up with their own Messenger app at a young age may have a detrimental effect on development and mental wellbeing. The app was the recent subject of a letter sent to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg from advocacy group Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. Now, their parents, too, can choose to install Messenger Kids. The thinking is that kids aren't ready to be on devices or messaging family and friends, so they shouldn't be doing this at all. The child can not interact with anyone else other than the people approved by his/her parents. From the Messenger Kids section of their profile, they need to add an existing user, and that person will become connected to the child on Messenger Kids.

Since it's for kids after all, you have a lot of kid-appropriate stickers, GIFs, frames, and emojis.

On the other side of the fence, there is no real way to monitor kids' online activities for the less tech-savvy parents.
