KidiCom™ Chat is a new messaging service launched with the KidiBuzz™ 3 system. You can now share short video clips with fun effects between approved contacts using the KidiBuzz™ 3 system or KidiCom™ Chat smartphone app. You can also share text, voice, photos, and drawings with approved contacts who have the earlier KidiConnect™ app on their KidiBuzz™ or KidiBuzz™ G2. Video messages and certain emoji and icons will not be visible to users with the earlier app version and we encourage all adults to use the newer KidiCom™ Chat app. We've reorganized the user interface and made many other improvements.
