Meta has announced that its Messenger Kids app will release three new beta versions of products for children and their families later this year.

The app is more eye-friendly in dark mode. Sound effects have also been added to the voice message. In addition to the ability to play from the discussion topic.

"We hope that these new features in the Messenger Kids app will help increase creativity, encourage play, and help children develop closer relationships with friends and family," the company said.

Dark mode was one of the most anticipated features of Messenger when it was launched in early 2019.

The company said we're excited to introduce Dark Mode in Messenger Kids on iOS mobile devices (Android to be released later).

Dark mode reduces phone glare, which is useful in low light and provides lower brightness while maintaining contrast and vibrancy.

Kids can turn on the dark mode by going to the app settings and selecting 'Dark Mode'.

You can also turn this feature on or off, or use the phone's settings to automatically change the design of the app to match the phone's settings.

With voicemails growing in popularity, kids using iOS mobile apps will, over the coming weeks, have the option to add sound effects to voicemails before sending them (Android launching later).

Users can tap and hold the voice microphone icon to record your message, then choose from five different options to change their voice to that of a robot, ghost, gorilla, or other mouse.

After you record an audio message, you will be presented with five options to edit it before sending it.

Kids Messenger can play games directly from the chat

In addition to these two new functions, the app is also adapting its gameplay functions so that kids can start an integrated game for two people from chatting using the orange console icon in the lower right corner.

Others, such as "Keeping Pets", are for single players. But there are plenty of games for two people like chess, zeros, crosses and daily graffiti.

To make it easier, the app allows kids to start a two-person game from a conversation on a mobile device.

These were previously hidden in a separate "Explore" tab. This change applies to iOS first, then to Android.
