Facebook’s Messenger Kids app is now available on Fire tablets

Last month, Facebook introduced Messenger Kids on iOS — which allows children under the age of 13 to safely communicate through text, video chat, and more, with friends and family. On Wednesday, January 10, the app officially launched on Fire tablets and will soon be available from the Amazon Appstore in the U.S.

As parents allow their kids to use tablets and smartphones more frequently, the stand-alone app serves to provide a safe and fun user experience. Parents still have control over how their children use the app, while kids can take advantage of the features available.

With Messenger Kids, parents are in charge of approving specific contacts to video chat with through the Kids Controls panel located in their Facebook app. Approved contacts will automatically show up on the home screen, which shows whether the contacts are online or not.

Kids can also send text messages, videos, and photos to older relatives and friends as long as those contacts are approved by parents as well. Adults are able to receive the message through their regular Messenger app.

While kids are unable to add anyone themselves through the app, they can block whomever they choose, which hides the child from the blocked person. Both parents and children are also able to report anything that makes them feel uncomfortable using the child’s Messenger Kids account. Facebook will then notify a parent through Messenger about the issue.

One difference between Messenger Kids and other third-party messaging apps is the approval process. For two children to connect, parents from both parties must approve it beforehand. That way, there is even more control over the contact list and who their child is interacting with.

Similar to the filters on Instagram and Snapchat, kids can decorate their conversations with masks, emojis, and sound effects. There is also a library of kid-friendly frames, stickers, GIFs, and drawing tools to choose from.

While parents can set up the app on their child’s iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, the device can only be authenticated via their own Facebook username and password. To finish the process, all that is needed is the child’s name and the account is all set up.

Radio station stops playing Kodak Black Songs over insensitive comments after Nipsey’s Longtime Partner

Published

Reports say that an LA-based radio station would no longer bump Kodak Black songs after he made a highly insensitive comment about Lauren London, Nipsey Hussle’s longtime partner.

He said he wanted to begin a relationship with her when she moved on from Nipsey Hussle in a video that started circulating on Saturday. These were his words.

“Lauren London that’s baby, though. She about to be out here single. She’s finna be a whole widow out here,”. “I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and (expletive) for (Nipsey).”

“I ain’t trying to shoot (my shot) at her.” he added. “I’m saying, listen. She can do two, three years. I’ll try to be like the friend if you need to holla or a shoulder to lean on. She can call my line.”

Hussle was shot and killed at his Los Angeles clothing store March 31. The rapper was well-known and celebrated for his humanitarian efforts. He and Lauren shared a son together in addition to creating a blended family with their children from past relationships.

The suspected gunman, Eric Holder, has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday. He also pleaded not guilty to two attempted murder charges.

In response to Black’s Instagram Live comments, Power 106 FM DJ Justin Credible said his station will not play his music.

“We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black,” Credible tweeted Saturday. “With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music.”

Rappers The Game and T.I. also called out Black for his comments.

The Shade Room reported The Game told Black and others who had negative things to say about Hussle to keep his name and London’s name out their mouths.

“Hey, Kodak Black: You outta pocket. … Fix that (expletive). Quickly, expeditiously,” T.I. said in an Instagram video. “You outta pocket. Ain’t nobody else gon say it. … If I see you, I’ma say it to your face. You outta pocket… Get your (expletive) self together.”

Black made another Instagram Live video in response, saying, “Man, listen. I said what I said. Y’all tryin’ to misconstrue what I said (…) don’t give a (expletive) what y’all talkin’ about,” he said. “T.I., man, I don’t care. I’m in Georgia right now. I don’t care.”

The Shade Room reported Black ended up apologizing early Sunday.

“If I disrespected you Lauren London, in any shape or form, I’m sorry, even though I didn’t,” he said. “And rest in peace to dude. Y’all already know what I said. I said dude encouraged me to do (expletive) for the community. But, anyhow, my bad to them two. But, like, for all you other people like trying to fake act like y’all little boy-ing me on the internet or checking me on the internet, if that’s how y’all feel, that’s how y’all wanna feel, I got a whole tour … I’m in Georgia right now and tomorrow I’ll be in Norfolk, Virginia, like wherever y’all see me, if that’s how y’all feel, that’s how y’all feel.”

Black has his own things to be concerned about. The Associated Press reported that he is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct after a woman claimed he raped her after a concert in 2016.
