Facebook today launched a major update to Messenger Kids, its messaging app designed for kids 13 and under. While the original app simply gave parents control over who their kids could chat with, the new Parent Dashboard lets parents monitor everything except the text of messages themselves. Parents can now view a log of all photos and videos sent and received, along with delete and report options. Parents can also see "who your child is chatting with, whether they are video chatting or sending messages and how frequently those conversations happened over the past 30 days." Parents can also download a full copy of their child's information, including full message content; the child will be alerted to this action with a notification in the Messenger Kids app. Facebook also added remote device logout and improved information on who a child has blocked and/or reported.
