EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- These days, more parents are away from their children. Business travel is increasing as well. Parents want to stay connected in ways beyond just simple conversations. Being able to play together when far apart has always been a challenge. Especially with younger children, web rooms where a parent and child might play a game together comes with risks of strangers, advertising, and unsecured connections.
Recently coming online, Distant Family is a web site providing safe and secure video chat and games for parents and children. Residing at https://distant.family, Distant Family requires no downloads or apps, but connects parents with their children directly through their browsers. The site allows the distant parent to invite their child to join them for a video chat. Within the chat environment, family members can chat and enjoy games and activities together.
Distant Family was created with child safety in mind. There are no public rooms, no ads to children, no friends, no strangers, and a chat room only exists when a parent occupies it. When the parent creates a room they send the room id to their child using an offline method, such as a text message or phone call. With help from their attending parent, a child can access the room and verify themselves by taking their picture or entering a code.
Once the connection between browsers is complete, the fun begins. Features include:
Secured/encrypted video conversations
No ads to children
Room name reservation with subscription
2-player, child-oriented games
Video animation overlays
Save camera snapshots
Text message windows
