Facebook introduces ''Sleep Mode'' for parents in Messenger Kids

YouTube Kids was designed as a safe haven of sorts for kids, where the videos available on the platform were supposed to be filtered and reviewed to make sure that they are safe for children. "Parents told us they would like controls that make the app inaccessible at a certain time, like during dinner, homework time or bedtime".

Facebook launched the messaging app aimed at kids under 13 in December.

To access this functionality now, parents will simply need to visit the Messenger Kids settings section in the main Facebook app.

Heat put on ice as 76ers advance
On Tuesday night, the Philadelphia 76ers took down the Miami Heat by a final score of 104-91 en route to a 4-1 series win. If talented young players like Joel Embiid , Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz stayed healthy, it seemed like a possibility.

Facebook Messenger Kids was the only app allowing parents to take full control of their Children's online behaviour and tracking down their activities. Parents can control sleep mode from the Parent Control centre through their own regular Facebook accounts.

It's simple to use, and while you can go in and adjust the times at any time, you can also just set it and forget it so you don't have to worry about constantly monitoring and changing the controls for the app. After tapping on the name of the child, you'll need to tap on "Sleep Mode" in the App Controls. A parent can set the chat app to go to sleep automatically only once per day, choosing a different time slot fro say, weekdays and weekends.

Facebook and Facebook's Messenger Kids app icons are displayed on an iPhone in NY on February 16, 2018.

Apple Working On Powerful AR/VR Headset
Startup Pimax successfully funded a Kickstarter for the world's first 8K VR headset, but has yet to ship any product to backers. This processor would work as a brain of the headset and the headset would be controlled by the built-in processor itself.

When active, sleep mode prevents kids from sending or receiving messages or video calls and from playing with the creative camera or receiving notifications.

If your kid attempts to access the app during blocked hours, they'll receive a simple message telling them to come back at the appropriate time to access Messenger Kids again. Alongside using the sleep mode, they can add and remove contacts and even delete and create accounts from the control panel.

Stay tuned with us to know more of such beneficial innovations of Facebook and other tech leaders of the industry.

Armenia's parliament sets date for prime minister vote
At the same time, Pashinyan voiced a specific demand: negotiations with Karapetyan should be held in the presence of journalists. It's unclear who will take over as prime minister since opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan most likely won't have enough votes.
