FB Messenger Kids App gets New Sleep Mode feature

Facebook has revealed that it has introduced a Sleep Mode in its Messenger Kids that will allow parents to set predetermined "off times" for the app on a child's device.

When app is in Sleep Mode, Kids cannot send
or receive messages or video calls, play with the creative camera or receive notifications. If they try to open the app, they'll see a message telling them that it's in sleep mode and to come back later.

Tarunya Govindarajan, Product Manager at Facebook has posted on his blog post as " Parents told us they would like controls that make the app inaccessible at a certain time, like during dinner, homework time or bedtime. We took this feedback to heart and built a feature that gives that level of control to parents"

Know How Messager Kids's Sleep Mode Works :- 

Go to the Messenger Kids controls in the main Facebook app. Tap on the child's name, and then on Sleep Mode in the App Controls' section. Now, set the times you want the app to turn off for your child.

You can set different times for weekdays versus weekends. Once you set the limits, the child will not be able to use the app during those hours. Parents can access all of their controls from the Messenger Kids controls in the main Facebook app.

"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 post added.
