  • Great app but a few suggestions

    By Flyingminimuffin274
    So I’m a kid and I use this app and I like to talk to my friends and play the bunny bridge game a lot but there’s an issue with it that makes me frustrated. The issue is this: in the tutorial it shows you the exact pieces you need and the bunny doesn’t start moving until all the pieces have been placed. When you start the real game, it doesn’t give you all the right pieces and the bunny doesn’t wait until you’ve completed a path. It starts moving after 2 pieces have been placed. I get that it’s a puzzle thing, but the bunny moves really fast and on the first level I played today, I tried placing a piece but it didn’t work, so that’s really frustrating. If you could maybe wait until the path is about halfway completed and if you could set out some more actually useful pieces, that’d be awesome. Also, I was thinking about this recently, last year I did this thing called “let’s look for cool filters” but when I watched the video at the end, I couldn’t hear what I said with most of the filters activated. I don’t know if this is still a problem, but anyways, there’s one more thing I wanted to discuss. There was this ADORABLE shark filter and I named him Leonard (pronounced Len-ird) and I haven’t seen him since! Please please please please PLEASE BRING LEONARD BACK Thank you, A kid who uses this app
  • Great app but I have a few ideas.

    By lexi is a dog
    This is a great app for parents AND kids, but a few tips. 1. Spamming. I get about a million different things a minute and when I’m trying to get schoolwork done I just get so upset because of course I wanna talk to my friends but school is important too. I think there should be a Do Not Disturb option and a way to tell someone if their spamming like if you choose send to all groups AND individual friends or family just simply give a kind reminder to not spam. 2. A color wheel instead of just a couple different colors to decorate your app so if you like a certain shade of a color you can choose. 3. More time for videos. What if I have something that I wanna show my friends and family but it’s more than a minute? What am I supposed to do? Send a bunch of videos? THAT’S SPAMMING! 4. Keep filters and games. I’ve had a lot of fun with games and filters in the past that have gotten taken away😔:( so if you could keep filters and games in the future it would mean SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much to me. So please try to at least one of those things if you can. That would mean A LOT to me if you did. And thank you SOOOOO much for reading my review you don’t know how much it means to me. Sorry this review is so long. Okay my fingers are officially dead. Byeeee ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜XD
  • This is great but just a few problems

    By bad.bxtch.neia
    I’m 11 and I personally think this app is GREAT! Some problems are when people spam me! I would just be doing homework or something and my sister would constantly send random videos and stuff!😒I would block them but that is just plain rude.😬There should DEFINITELY be a Do not Disturb button! Another problem is saving pictures or videos with stickers or text! Whenever I save a picture or a video with something written on it or a sticker, it doesn’t save the written thing! That just gets me mad! I would want to show my friends at school instead of just opening up the app and scrolling and looking for the video I sent! I also think that the videos you can take should be longer than 1 minute! Let’s say I wanted to make something creative! I would only have 1 minute to do that! THATS JUST CRAZY! ☹️Besides all of those things, I KNOW that messenger kids is a great app for parents who know that they should be able to know and control who and what their kids do when it comes to texting and calling! Thanks for reading my review! It literally means a LOT❤️ (my fingers are about to fall asleep!😂)
  • Please take away the video update

    By lolpksnsnhsbhsjwhhsj
    Hi got Messenger kids like two months ago and it was so fun please I only ask you one thing take away the video update now you can only take a video for 15 seconds I don’t know if that’s just going on with me but I like to take videos with filters and now I can only do it for 15 seconds so please I’m begging you fix that and why don’t you bring like when it was Halloween we didn’t get a Halloween pet and then now it’s close to Thanksgiving and we didn’t get a Thanksgiving pet or like a Christmas pet I’ll give you examples of different pets at the end but anyways take away the video update because I love to make videos and it’s not working it’s only running it for 15 seconds and it’s going way too fast so if you read this please you just need to fix one thing I am literally have nothing else to complain the app is really fun it’s really secure and I can text my friends The pets I was suggesting for Halloween maybe like a pumpkin or a skeleton or a ghost or witch and for Thanksgiving a turkey and for Christmas maybe a reindeer or arctic reindeer or a polar bear anyways doesn’t my suggestion just please pick that video update I don’t like it at all, Love ❤️ kk Kailia
  • My kids love this.. but literally NO boundaries

    By Newtonka
    I have had this app for ONE day and my phone is nonstop blowing up. I have turned all notifications off (which I’d rather not have to do) However. There is not any type of a silent mode or an option to not contact the kids at a certain time. Even with zero notifications my phone keeps going off with all of the phone calls coming in from my child’s friends. Like 10x/minute. It is way too much. I have found myself logging on asking my daughters friends to please respect that it is bedtime. There needs to be some boundaries on this app! Like there should be a “do not disturb” option and also a function that requires parents permission for FaceTiming. Giving them access to chat at any time with friends is a complete invasion of privacy. My daughter respects it once I catch on that she’s FaceTiming.. but I should be able to allow the time frame when she has access to do it period. Already had a “moment” where I had to raise my voice and she’s literally FaceTiming with a friend.. who is in front of her parents.. and they heard everything. Beyond uncomfortable knowing that our privacy is invaded by kids that are just doing what the app allows them to get away with. More boundaries please or this thing is getting deleted. It is overwhelming after day 1.
  • I love this app! It’s amazing!!

    By GalaxyAngel2233314
    I really like this app. It’s very well organized I think. Honestly it’s just so amazing because it’s so safe. My mom got this app for me during quarantine since a lot of my friends didn’t have phones to text or call with. They all had iPads or Computers. So when I first got this app I was pretty enthusiastic! I mean I think it’s a safe way for kids and friends to text and still talk during wierd times. I think the parent controls are amazing. I think the parent controls are so important for safety that this is an app that kids and there friends are safe. Also, my friend sent me this screen shot if the new update were you can share a song with your friends and make a video. Even though I updated this app cleared it and restarted my phone I could not find this feature. I searched it up on the internet but nothing helped. So please can you do something or tru and put something about on the internet because it really seems interesting and I would hate to miss out! But that’s really all I think this app is amazing it has some twinks but not everything is perfect. Overall this app is great! (My fingers are now officially dead btw)
  • Contacts list parents can see is faulty

    By sjdim
    First of all, it’s not easy figuring out how to delete contacts or add new ones once you have finished initial set up. When I finally figured it out (I had to google it, after I tried downloading the app directly onto my phone to see it I could access parental controls that way), finding out that you access this control from you Facebook account, the contact lists for my two kids were not showing all their contacts. I know this because there were a few relatives I was specifically looking for to delete (not for bad reasons on their part, but just because my kids were bugging them a lot), and they show up on the app for my kids, but not for me to delete from my end. I had to go out of the parental controls for each of my kids and then back in again several times and each time a new contact that previously had not shown up, showed up. It’s really weird. And even still on one of my kids accounts, from my end, it says she does not have her dad as a contact, but I know she does as she messages him all the time on there. This issue needs to be fixed ASAP!
  • Very good, but needs improvement.

    By Noahkittypotter
    I have been using this app since I was 7. It has been fun for me. I can talk to my friends, use fun filters, and send stickers and gifs. However, I don’t appreciate the fact that when new filters come, old ones go away. Also with the missions, for three years it has said to come back later for more. Although It can be good in some ways, I hate when my app goes to sleep. My mom will not change it and it has been horrible. For example, last week I had an unseen text. For three days straight, I couldn’t see my message because of this. On the way to school, my app was still sleeping, when I finish homework, my app is sleeping again. I suggest that maybe this app should have sleeping limits, or no sleeping at all. For a last complaint, blocking. One time my friend wanted to know what happened when she blocked someone. She blocked me and then when she unblocked me, we still couldn’t talk to each other. This app has some flaws, but can be good in many ways. I hope you will agree with me and try to fix these, but also keep up the good work!
  • Messenger kids is awesome

    By dd pops
    I am 7 years old and my friend had it and I told my mom I want it And she put it on the computer then I used it so much like every day and one of my other friends got it on their phone so I asked my mom if I could get it on my phone so I got it onMy phone and then she got on the iPad and I told my mom you don’t have to put it on everything and she laughed but I love messenger kids so much I’m probably going to have a virtual birthday party on there because my birthday soon get messenger kids and have fun with sending your friends photos with funny filters maybe put stickers on it and color on it call your friends and use the filters and play the games and there’s new filters every week and send them stickers and all that stuff you can do so much you can even have this little pet thing on there and grow it and I’ve already had three so far and it’s been like six or a few months so hopefully you have fun doing all the creative stuff doing this and the person who made messenger kids it’s great because I love messenger kids
  • It’s annoying, slow, boring and pretty babyish,

    By poopanimoji🕸
    It’s a pretty good app as a 10 year old I use it to connect to friends and family, I got it in like... February, and recently it’s been very buggy, every update comes with a bug and it annoying since this app updates constantly, it’s very buggy and frustrating, sometimes when I’m calling someone, it randomly crashes and hangs up, and most calls your screen is black so we have to call just a few million times 😒,and also why do we ONLY have video chat sometimes I just want to call, not have a video chat, oh and the “be creative” part is mostly fake and a scam, because when you edit a pic with filters and stickers it takes away most of it and messes it up, and the stickers are lame so I only use emojis, and it seems that the creators are pretty lazy, it’s like they never take the time to test the app. Oh and don’t get me started on how babyish this is, the filters are so dumb, and the games UGH so lame and boring, Oh and I saw a review about Facebook kids, and that idea is amazing! But this app is horrible already and clearly lazy so your VERY precious time cannot be used on Facebook kids This app needs major improvements and fixes, and make it funner, and please add just a normal call like why only video chat?
