In addition there are also Kindness Stickers are made specifically to be an inspiration for children to always do good.
This new sticker can be used after the user updates the Facebook Messenger Kids app.
Furthermore, Messenger Kids will have a new feature called Appreciation Mission, but it has not been released officially yet.
This feature is an interactive guide that encourages children to discover and express appreciation for their friends and family.
Outside of the new features already and will be released, Facebook says it will continue to strengthen the Messenger Kids app.

M Translations works in the same way as translator features that already exist on Facebook.
If an English speaking user receives a message in Spanish, Messenger will automatically translate it. That is, this feature can translate English into Spanish, and vice versa.
Unfortunately, there is no information about the exact date of the launch of this language translator feature. The US and Mexico will certainly be the first to taste it, but Facebook will also release it for various other countries thereafter.
