Good but some recommendations

Hi, I love using kids messenger to talk to all my friends and over all it’s an AMAZING APP. If you are a parent reading this just let your kids get it. It’s amazing I am a kid but I know about all the parent controls and they are really good. You get to choose who your kid gets to talk to and everything but back to my point, I don’t really like the newest update. When I got onto it it the appearance wasn’t as fun as usual. Like, your contacts were not in little bubbles any more and it looked like plain old boring messages. I think you should put in the settings to be able to choose the appearance. Also in the updated version (like I have) you don’t get to choose your emoji. When I first saw that I was so excited to see what it did and I liked it. But, when I got the updated version it didn’t have that option. Maybe like my other idea you can put an option in the settings if you want to be able to choose your emoji or not. Another thing is it gave me an option to see my friends contacts. That is kind of creepy like you are spying on who your friends talk to. I mean they do have to option to share it with you but still it’s kind of creepy. My last suggestion, say your friend has another friend that they want you to meet it only lets you make group calls or group chats if they are your contact too. There has been ATON of times that happened to me can you add that please?

Thank you so much for reading this.✨✨✨

Messenger kids is AMAZING but please a few recommendations

Hello I have been using Messenger Kids for about a year now and I absolutely love it! It has so many fun games and stickers I also really love the filters. But I do have a few recommendations and a glitch as well. There is one glitch that happens to me quite a bit is sometimes if I send a thumbs up another one appears under it and wont go away. Other than that most glitches have been fixed. I wish there was a shop like one where you could use the points you earn in games to buy stickers filters or like special emojis for your picture. I also wish that there was a multiplayer mode where you could get on and play a game with your friend at the same time is them like for instance send them a link to this game in messenger and play at the same time with them like race them or see who can hit the most orbs or jump higher on frog leap something like that but at the same time. I also wish that in the video maker where you can add songs and fiters i wish you could hear audio too so if i talked you could hear it. I also wish there was more than fifteen seconds for the videos. One last thing is if you could like have a weekly vote for everyone using messenger for a new filter or game and then the one with the most votes would be added. If you added those on i would ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!! Anyways your app is great keep up the good work.

Hi There Plz Read!😜😄😀

Hi! I have been using Messenger Kids for about a year. So far it has been great. I love it! I love that I can talk to my friends especially during the summer. I love this app I will tell you why in this review I will also tell you what I don’t like and what I would want you to add. So I like this app because I can keep in touch and chat with my friends. I have been wanting social media and I finally found something! I was so happy when I finally got it because my parents always have to think about getting me an app and I was so happy the day I got it! I love the games you put on there there very fun. I especially love Nugget Hero. Me and my friends were looking for another social media app but we couldn’t find one! So we made a group “Instagram Kids” I love that I can make group chats. Now the bad stuff. I don’t like how you take away the games that are fun! You took away a whole bunch of games but then you put them back it doesn’t make sense! I also don’t like how you don’t block out rude words like the F word or like Stupid, Idiot, and Shut up. Me and my friends got in a fight my friend told me to SHUT UP! We are now Ex Besties. Ok last thing some recommendations for the app. Make more games I want to play more stuff! Make more filters! And also Make a “Remove Friend Button” for everyone my friends have it but I don’t! Thank you for you time and have a great Night/Morning/Evening.
