What It Is:
Dubsmash is a video creation app that allows your video (your face) to be dubbed over with audio from a movie, internet soundbite, or famous song.
Who is on it?:
This app is increasing in popularity among most age ranges, from kids to middle-aged adults.
Would My Child Want It?:
It’s pretty fun for kids to seem like they are saying or singing something that’s dubbed over their voice. It can be super entertaining for them.
Where Can It Be Used?:
it’s an app, so it can be used anywhere with cell or wifi service.
What Should I Watch Out For?:
Not too much to watch out for except they could “dub” themselves to a song or lyric that’s inappropriate and could share that online, never being able to get it back or erase it. Some songs do use language that isn’t appropriate for kids.
What Are The Positives?:
It’s pretty fun and funny for kids and parents to do this together.
What Are The Negatives?:
Language in the songs can be inappropriate for some kids, and you may not want to expose your kids to certain genres of music.
What We Think:
it’s fun, just watch for certain songs.
