Facebook's Messenger Kids app arrives on Amazon Fire tablets

Facebook's Messenger Kids app arrives on Amazon Fire tablets”

Last month, Facebook announced Messenger Kids, a child-friendly version of its messaging app that enables parents to keep a tight grip on their child's digital communications.

Facebook Messenger Kids was launched in December past year.

Facebook Messenger Kids debuted on Android a year ago and it is now available on the Amazon App Store for Fire tablets.

Parents must download the app to their kid's phone, authenticate the device with their own Facebook account, and set up a profile with the child's full name. They don't need a Facebook account at all to use Messenger Kids.

Adult friends and family members can use the regular Facebook Messenger to chat with youngsters on Facebook Messenger Kids, provided the link has been approved by the parents. No new contacts can be added without the parents' approval. Facebook doesn't serve any ads in Messenger Kids. Kids can have group or one-on-one chats with approved contacts with age-appropriate GIFs, emojis, frames, interactive masks, Facebook reactions, and more. There was a big downside at launch, though; Messenger Kids was only available for iOS users. Following this, it's now expanded to Amazon's line of Fire tablets. The app still isn't available on the Google Play Store.
