Best Multiplayer Apps for Kids

These apps allow kids to create shared experiences over playing apps.

Exploring apps and games with others is a fun way to play together. Frequently, two or more people bond when playing a game -- they may discuss strategy, rules, or surprising elements. With the apps on this rec list, kids can play with a sibling, a friend, a parent, or other adult. By playing with others, children learn about winning, losing, and even cooperating together for a joint goal.

For children under age 13, the safest way to play with others is to do so on the same device. We do not advocate playing online games with strangers if there is a possibility of the stranger communicating with your young child.

This list is filled with huddle games -- games where players huddle around a device to play the game.
