Working on the Growth team on Messenger Kids to make and support the app that is fun and safe for kids and easy for parents to manage
Messenger Kids is a free video messaging and chat app for kids offering more parental controls and fun for kids.
I worked at the Growth Team of Messenger Kids; I supported the product design and the development of fun and safe-to-use products.
1. Messenger Kids | 'Kids You May Know' feature
Kids You May Know feature is a suggestion unit that shows friends of friends that the user might know. Based on the mutual friends, kids would be able to expand their connection easier.
2. Emoji Status
Emoji Status feature is designed to be an ice breaker for kids who don't know how to start a conversation with friends. This version enables kids to customize their emojis to show their status.
3. Help Kids Connect
Help Kids Connect feature is the new setting to give kids options to share their info with possible connections so the user can be discovered by friends more easily.
The new version of Messenger Kids plans to have emoji and text status that allows kids to reply to friends' status. I designed the status and reply features.
Documentation sample for the stakeholders, XFN partners, and the designer who will take over the project later.
Presentation sample to brief the project to the wider organization and get approval for further development.

Title: EMOJI STATUS
Kids have a hard time breaking the ice with a friend on messenger kids. The team tested emoji status that displays emoji as a status on the chat window. The reactivation and retention had significant growth. However, there are design problems that were not addressed, so I am assigned to improve the Emoji Status' flow and design.
