Kik is a social media messenger app that has been running for a few years now. SMS is so last century, Kik is the new way to communicate! The de intent was to make Kik better looking, simpler to work with, and faster to use and communicate. There is also an element of privacy built into it, too, as you create a username rather than share your cellphone .
This works both for you and against you as anyone can use the app with the same anonymity. Kik also has another trick up its sleeve. It is a mini internet within an app. Kik has its own apps, own web browser, own video and music player and other neat tricks. So you can listen to music while chatting, watch videos, look at memes, check out Reddit, play games, and more. All from within Kik. To use Kik you will obviously have to download a copy of the app for your device and install it.
Get it here for iPhone and here for Android. You can use it on a Windows desktop or a Mac, too, but that requires some pretty specialized software and is outside the scope of this article. Just focus on your mobile device for now. To share media, you will need to allow Kik to access your images and video. You can also send other content by tapping the little square icon to the right above the chat box.
You can then send stickers, video links, Sketches, memes, and your web history. All social media apps depend on you having people to talk to in order to work. Kik is no different. You can search by username or phone contacts, or you can use a Kik code. The system will not search by real name, nickname, phone , or address. It will only search using Kik usernames. This is good for privacy, but it does make finding people slightly more difficult than it needs to be.
As mentioned, Kik will only search by username. You either have to know it in advance or get it from your friends by normal SMS, , or however you feel like getting the info from them. One strong feature of Kik is the ability to group chat. You can gather up to 9 people at once into a group and chat, share media, or whatever else strikes your collective fancy. Another neat feature of Kik is the kikbot. This is a literal bot who can answer many basic questions about Kik and even hold a conversation with you should nobody you know be online.
Although there is no reason why you would want a bot in a group chat anyway, as you have real people to talk to. Kik is a pretty good messaging app that does a lot of things well. On the downside, it is harder than it should be to find other users and requires you to share usernames by other means in order to connect. But even that downside is balance out by the privacy it allows you, and once you do connect with someone, it is easy to communicate entirely within Kik.
