Facebook’s stand-alone Messenger Kids application is now available in 74 more countries, and three new opt-in features were added to help parents connect their kids with their friends.

Global head of safety Antigone Davis said in a Newsroom post, “With schools closed and people physically distancing, parents are turning to technology more than ever to help their kids connect with friends and family, and looking to do so in a parent-controlled way. To help, we’re starting to roll out Messenger Kids to more countries and we’re adding new opt-in features for parents to help them connect their kids with their friends.
