After watching the queen’s gambit I wanted to play chess and chess kid rules

No Friends. No Support

My downloaded version of the app looks different than the one they show screenshots for on their Help pages. For example, there is no Friends tab or obvious ability to add friends on the app. Friends feature only available on website. A social media person keeps telling me to address issues to their support email but no one follows up. Only one stars for the lessons and playing with a bot. I will change my rating when my issue has been addressed or resolved.
