Earlier this week, we held our Spring 2022 Miko Family Webinar to update customers about Miko 3 enhancements, new partnerships and what’s in the pipeline for the next three months. Whether you missed the event or could use a refresher, read this quick recap for all the highlights from the Spring 2022 Miko Family Webinar. (Hint: That includes an extra-special content announcement!)

The Launch You’ve Been Waiting For…
We also announced one of our biggest content launches of the year: Kidoodle.TV on Miko 3!
You’ve probably seen Kidoodle.TV on Roku or Apple TV, where it’s the most popular kids’ streaming platform. As of today, Kidoodle.TV’s awesome kids shows are also available on Miko 3! And it’s 100% ad-free for your child to watch.
Why do we love Kidoodle.TV? Because their team hand-picks every show to make sure that the content is age-appropriate, engaging and educational. Some of the top shows that have landed on Miko 3 include “Talking Tom Shorts,” “Booba,” “Sing With Blippi” and many more that your kids will probably recognize (and definitely love).
Kid favorites like “Booba,” “Talking Tom Shorts” and “SuperHeroKids” are free for all Miko 3 families. If you’re a Miko Max subscriber, you get access to the entire Kidoodle.TV content library, which includes shows like “Aaron’s Animals,” “Get Slimed” and “Strike a Pose.” Explore this new world of content on your Miko 3 today!
What’s in the Pipeline
During the webinar, we also shared what’s on deck at Miko for the next three months. We’re working on all sorts of fun voice interactions (think: riddles, knock-knock jokes and a creative painting experience), plus enhancing Miko’s face training, voice training and recognition. We’re also planning to roll out a family profile so that Miko can begin recognizing your family members.
And of course, we’ll continue launching new experiences monthly, from seasonal commands to expanded content from brands your kids are sure to love.
We wrapped up the spring 2022 webinar by answering some of your most-asked questions. We covered Mikonnect enhancements and provided tips for extending your Miko 3 battery life. (Hint: Put Miko to sleep or shut it down completely when you’re not actively using it.) Here’s a quick summary of the customer Q&As we discussed during the webinar.
Q: How can I change the language of my Miko 3?
Simply go to the Parent App’s Settings tab and select the Display and Content Language option to change the language. If you want Miko to interact in more than one language other than English, you can do so with a Miko Max subscription.
Q: When will Miko be able to address my child by name?
Miko will address your child by name when it wakes up from “sleep mode.” We plan to increase this type of interaction in the future.
Q: When will both parents be able to make Mikonnect calls?
We’re working on an update that will allow both parents to make Mikonnect calls and will let you know as soon as it launches!
Q: How can I adjust Miko’s screen brightness?
This is a great suggestion; we’re working on implementing this functionality.
Q: Why does Miko 3 keep turning on, even after being shut down?
This could be because you’re putting Miko into “sleep mode” rather than shutting it off. To shut down Miko, long-press the power button. After doing so, Miko won’t turn on unless you power it “on.”
Q: Does having Miko on all the time affect my WiFi bandwidth?
Miko only uses WiFi when you ask a question or use a game requiring internet connectivity. Simply having Miko turned “on” shouldn't affect your WiFi bandwidth.
Q: What technical support do you provide after purchase?
Our team provides ongoing tech support. You can take a video demo or raise specific troubleshooting questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll also be launching a full set of how-to videos soon to help you make the most of your Miko 3.
Q: How can I get Miko to engage more with my kids?
