Games and music and more After using Tango for a bit I could see the appeal.During a video chat you can send cute animations, you can play games while chatting, and can share music using Spotify right within the app.This is true with Tango, so you might urge your teen to make sure they are not sharing personal information here.There is a spot to include birthday (month and date) and gender but you can leave those blank.It takes two to Tango, but with the Tango app you can tango with up to 50 people at once.Tango is a messaging app, similar to popular apps like Kik and Whats App.There are filters you can add to enhance the photos you send, and filters to add cool effects during a video chat.While adults might just want a quick way to communicate via text, teens and young adults would likely spend more time hanging out with each over the app using the fun add-ins.

Parents, if your kids are using Tango you may want to ensure these settings are in place.Most were tame, but I did see a bit of nudity and a nice young gentleman with his middle finger in the air.As with other social networking sites and apps, certain information in your profile is always public, such as your name or username and profile picture.This looks to be mostly young men and women, and includes a filter if you only want to see men or only want to see women (which makes it seem like a “let’s hook up” sort of app).This is an “anything goes” kind of area – nothing to stop teens from clicking through the profiles – since they are public – to view the many selfies posted by Tango users.As always you’ll want to discuss with your kids that with any app or website: Tango does have a “block user” feature if it comes to that.
