Facebook introduces ''Sleep Mode'' for parents in Messenger Kids

Facebook Messenger app on phone

Sleep mode offers the same to the parents, where the set off times will make the app inaccessible to kids for the respective time period. When the app is in Sleep Mode, kids can not send or receive messages or video calls, play with the creative camera or receive notifications. 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 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.

Moreover, the child will get a warning 10 minutes before the "sleep mode" activates so that he/she can finish and wind up any ongoing conversations on the app. This ensures that they don't have to constantly monitor or change app controls, giving them the peace of mind for their children. Since the time Facebook launched Messenger Kids for the iOS in December, the social network has been on fire.

According to this new Sleep Mode features, parents can now set the times when their Children are not allowed to use this service.

With a simplified interface, the new feature enables parents to adjust the timings at any time. Google hopes this is another step in the right direction of making YouTube Kids a safe-space for the 11 million children who watch videos in the app every week. You can set different times for weekdays versus weekends. Now Facebook is adding one more.

Parents have told us that they like how Messenger Kids allows them to fully control the contact list and check in on their child's messaging as they're learning to navigate the digital world. Parents can also delete the account or create a new account for the Kids within the same environment. This could be a good time to let them know that you're setting limits for them on Messenger Kids.
