Good app but lots of errors

I love messenger kids yet there are a lot of things that bug me with the app... So, when you and your friend are in a call and you end up disconnecting and those beeps come on... Rip my ears... that sound is so annoying and it bugs me so much what I think would be better is if you could chose what the sound could be! Like you can chose what sound you hear on a timer. My second reason is when your friends call you and you can’t answer... so when I’m in the middle of class and you have your phone is in your backpack and you hear ringing!!! Then you have to mute ur phone and get back to class! Can you please set something up like... A school button! Like You can set up a time from the beginning of school to the end of school or a shut off all notifications button in messenger.. this would help a lot. Next, the colors you can set for your backround. This is not really a problem it is just a suggestion. The colors you can chose in my opinion are very limited and I would Ive for you to add more variety of colors to pick from like they don’t have a baby blue, A dark teal, A peach ish color, you know what I mean. Next swearing or bad words... A lot of typos are made and sometimes these words can be innopropriate. For example one time I was trying to send ship and it ended up being a swear... if you could add restrictions and maybe add tags to swears or never end up sending the message that would make many people feel more comfortable I believe. Thank you!

Awesome app but I have a few suggestions

This is an awesome app! I am a 11 year old and my parents are all about online safety. They got me this app so I could chat safely with my friends from school and my family, and just WOW! Messenger kids is amazing!
I can text, and video call with my friends and family, safely, all while my parents are monitoring what I’m doing WHILE I’m doing it. I love that it is FREE and totally safe!! But I also have a suggestion. So it’d be amazing if you guys could make a Facebook Kids app. Itd be just like Facebook, except with all the parental controls. Facebook Kids and Messenger Kids could connect, like Facebook and Messenger do, and basically you can post whatever you want, create you profile, and you can post like people do on Facebook. But only your friends can see your posts and profile. You are only viewable to your friends that you are friends with on the messenger kids app. You also get notified whenever one of your friends posts, or whenever one of them like or comment or share your post. I think that in the parental control setting in Facebook, there should be an option to let kids see adults post, the ones that actually have Facebook. Because adults sometimes posts things that kids shouldn’t see. But the adults that are friends with the kid, can still see there posts. Thank you for putting your time and effort into making messenger kids, and I hope you at least consider my idea. 💖💖

I like this but just a few small problems

This app is amazing and as a nine year old I think there are some small things that bothers me.
1)so my friend spams at me a lot when I’m in class and every time I decline her call she calls again like ten more times. I would block her but I personally think it’s cruel to do that. Hopefully you find a way to stop people from spamming?
2) I actually just realized this but when I go to the emojis in the back there are flags put in well alphabetical order :l so when I went to the back I couldn’t find the US flag .... is that supposed to be lile that!?? Like I thought the creator of Facebook,messenger,and messenger kids lives in America unless I’ve gotten in wrong and I’m overreacting ........
Anyways besides those then I think this app is amazing ,I really hope other people are having better experience than me also if your having trouble changing your text color here’s the solution. Firs t you got to the very top and you see your profile thing right? So you press that and one of them will say decorate app and press that and choose the color ( sadly there aren’t much colors) and yeah that all thank you for reading my review ;) have a nice day
( also I had to write this twice because for some reason it deleted half of this so please be grateful that I did this my hands are sore or there dead now XD)
