The best part of Kik is that it is available for iPhone, Android smartphones, and also for Windows Phone OS powered smartphones. It clearly means that all of your smartphone using friends can be found using the Kik and thus, you can have the experience it wants to deliver.
It doesn’t work like WhatsApp work and it ensures a privacy feature for you. This special privacy feature can be helpful and also a disaster.
It is helpful in the sense that no one can message you or add you using the phone number, which is known to almost everyone. The other person needs to know the unique username you have kept.
But, on the other hand, if anyone guesses your username or somehow know it, then you can get a lot of spams. I have seen a lot of people complaining of the same. So, never share your Kik username publicly or anyone you don’t know.
Once you are out of this user name dilemma and want to use the features to help you send texts for free, get started with this application. After starting, creating a new account is simple and any 2015 internet aware person can do it.
Once you are logged in, all your contacts who are also using Kik will be automatically listed at your end and you can pick any of them to begin using the services offered by this messenger. You are allowed to share texts, images, GIFs, videos, voice notes, etc.
Unfortunately, Kik doesn’t allow sharing real-time location with any user which is a limitation. But, I am sure the developers are working to implement and bring this very handful feature.
The rest, everything is over. No other thing is inside to distract you from the conversation you can continue doing and that’s what makes Kik a powerful player.
You are always focused on the conversations which are the main reason why you use messaging applications. Because of the high standard privacy feature, it can be your choice if you prefer keeping your profile hidden from the public.
The only thing left which I didn’t share is the user interface. I must say, it is pretty fair in looks and functions as it supposed to. Also, there is nothing inside which can hurt the user experience this app has earned through its fast services and extra privacy features.

Your messages are notified when they are delivered, sent and read. Unfortunately, you can’t turn off this feature which is the worst wrong part of Kik. They need to provide an option, just like iMessage.
Before starting with the exact process, and to ensure that you don’t meet any issues, you need to check few prerequisite. These things are to be matched with the computer or laptop you want to use for this installation.
- The system should have enough storage in C Drive and also as primary memory i.e. the RAM. The free storage in HDD/SSD should be around 5-10GB (always keep this much free) and RAM should be at least 4GB.
- Next and last, the display monitor attached to the system should have HD resolution and the system itself should be running on HD standard of the graphic drive. Also, make sure the driver is updated to newer version.
If your system is compatible with these requirements, you are 100% confident to go ahead and you will not find any problem or error. But, I don’t recommend to proceed ahead if your system is old enough to stay incompatible here.
