Reviews From google play store

Don't like how there are ads in the app now since KIK was bought. Would love to see it become ad free again. The ads are ruining the chat experience


I love this app but it has a few bugs. I have the note 8 and both mine and my bfs call option has disappeared on us. But I love the chat bubbles that let you text well you call. Kinda sucks that you cant text multiple people if in a call. It has easy texting features and you can change the color of chats. I have been on this app 3 almost 4 years and it gets better some bugs are annoying but I still love this app.


I have used this app for YEARS. The app is extremely reliable and the video chat option is the only option that has had a consistently decent connection. The app is has nevrr never shut down on me suddenly like Facebook message. Plus the GIF option is my all time favorite so many amazing random options the search bar on that is great! In the past week however I have had an issue where the video chat option has completely disappeared how do I make this option reappear?


Has slowly but surely become once of the worst apps for chatting with friends and meeting new people. I've had this app for over 7 years. It used to be a great platform to meet new people, chat, and make friends. Now it is infested with perverts and spam bots. The Meet New People function doesn't work anymore. Kin is no longer an actual thing and it will not let you purchase anything with it. I have emailed Kik Support numerous times about the multitude of issues, and received no response.


The fact that thiis app has been around for quite some time and some people have made best friends but have no other way of communicating but on here with this app, Yet no one would know that it would be shut down unless they read up on it. That in itself leaves little to be said and/or desired by any of the makings kik or anything to do with the makers of; and what will be developed and put forth in the future. Disappointed after years of loyalty.


I used to love this app. unfortunately it's stopped working. I never get notifications that I have a message, yes my notifications is on, except every once in a while. sometimes the messages don't even get delivered. they say they were delivered but on the other persons messages there's nothing. I have been using this app for years. we loved having the new video feature. still sucks that I don't get notifications anymore. really disappointed.


My video chat button is gone. So is my friends. Can't video chat now. Went through help, troubleshooting, reinstalled, etc. Nothing works and when I email support, the reply is we can't reply to individual emails, go to the help section online. We'll that does no good. Where did the button go?


Good and simple interface. Good for those to don't wanna give their phone numbers to strangers and yet want to stay connected. But, Team Kik I have two worries about this app. 1) When we will be getting voice calling option? 2) Why don't you enable sending moving gifs from phone gallery too? These two features are much needed to make it a workable app. Please the solution or work on these.


There has to be a way to add a feature where if you get a new phone, you can retrieve your kik messages, pictures's and videos instead of them auto deleting when you sign in from your new device! This would be a great app if not for that. And there is the occasional message that doesnt go through so the friend your messaging becomes clueless as to what your talking about..


I loved the experience I had with the app. I will miss it once it is gone. It is supposedly leaving on Oct. 19th of 2019. I made so many friends and found the love of my life with the app. I also lost the love of my life because of the app. But other than that, the app is overall good and has taught me that everyone needs a friend that they may not know personally to talk about their problems that are embarassing. I will miss this app so much.


After installing the application, it works fine for a day and then the bugs start to come up. I can't send messages and even when i log off and try to log in again, it doesn't let me. I simply have to reinstall it again. I hope the support team would come up with a solution to this. Thank you Device : Samsung S9+


Since apparently Kik is going to stay alive, an issue needs to be addressed. The chat history storing up and collecting to the point where Kik goes over 1GB of phone storage used up is unnecessary when chats have messages dissapearing automatically. Rather than focusing on how many devices one can use, I suggest there should be an alternative for storage. Where less space on phones are being used. It would help those who have trouble with Storage, less users would be deleting Kik for storage.


I have used this app for years because it's the only one that has always been reliable. I have many friends who I only have on kik. If it really is shutting down over Kin than I'd like to propose an alternative. I remember older versions of kik where kin wasn't a thing, and if possible perhaps you could change the app back while figuring out the whole kin situation. Anything is better than shutting it down completely. I know I can't be the only one who will lose friends who are temp inactive.


What disappoints me is the end of Kik, wether it's true or not, after years with this app, i would've expected better then Kik being shutdown. Instead of shutting it down, increase security CORRECTLY, even if there have been problems with the people that use the app, it also brings people together to make friends. No other app could compare to Kik's greatness, it is truly a unique app, but very very very depressing to see it go.


Sad to hear this app is going away soon. Definitely one of my favorite chat apps. made a lot of friends through this app in conjunction with reddit forums or kik websites. Hope one day this can be brought back somehow whenever this does shutdown. And to the close to 80 staff who ran this app as best as they can. Thank you we all appreciate you truly.


Good when it doesn't crash. I updated my phone to the newly releases Android 10 on my Pixel 2. I then installed kik and it randomly crashes and logs me off. I lose all chat history. Don't know if Android 10 is the issue since I didn't have Kik installed before. Waiting for an update... Update The crash issue has been identified and fixed. It's all good now.


With Android 10, just like 9, the notification at the top does nothing when you click to go to the app. When will this be fixed? Every other app works. Now with 10 the app opens but uts just a blank screen. You need to fix these things. Its been over a year now since things have not worked. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app already. IT'S YOUR ISSUE! FUX IT!


I like this app, but here lately it's been a real pain in the @$$ to use. The app itself will open it when I go to a conversation within the app it will not open. It just goes to a black screen. I've closed the app and have uninstalled and reinstalled it every time it happens and it will work fine for a few days and then do the same thing. It's getting really annoying. thanks. And the most recent "update" made things worse in my opinion.


What a pathetic support system! KIK has been playing up for months now. Messages won't go through properly. Sometimes they just sit as sent for ages. Sometimes they show as delivered, but have not arrived. Most times a message will not come through until you actually open the app and message ribbon. Then other times, you can have an instant conversation just fine. I am not the only one who is having these issues, so it is not my Internet connection. We're ALL using other messaging apps more.


I have used this app on and off for a few years. It has disappointed me to find out the app is shutting down. I've met a lot of friends on here and it is a easy to use app. Being a long term user myself I know many people are very broken about the app shutting down. I give 5 stars because it is an app I use more then facebook


Recently lost the video chat feature. Very disappointed. //Previously my conversation with one person was partially deleted, but other conversations go back more than a year... is there a way to get it back? what does it look like to a person if you block them? will it show that your message was just sent and not delivered or read? tried to use initial greeting to contact for help but only got a bot response :(


I will rate higher if you change the way to get chat themes or properly fix the Kin Marketplace. Everytime I try to open it up, I see the message about no offers today. It's been like that for months. Edit: It's fixed, but realizing you're the oldest person in the group and they throw tantrums then boot you from the group, I'd say it's time to move on now. Kik was interesting while it lasted, but no one talks with it anymore.


This app would be above average if I had to load it from a floppy disc. On Windows 95. The camera is complete garbage... there is a delay of approximately 3-5 seconds between "shutter" and actually capturing the image. Sadistforyou should check out this new app called Snapchat and envision a better way of life... such as being able to lock the video camera's record button 'on'.


At first the app was so good. But nowadays i am facing many problems.meet new people option doesn't working. I can't purchase anything by my kin wallet


Update from last review a year ago. The app consistantly fails or takes forever to send messages. Theyve removed facetime and the led color feature. And the app is way more buggy then it used to be. This app needs to change something fast because its slowly getting worse


this app is okay but it keeps deleting my conversations and I have to make sure that I save or download any pictures or videos that are sent to me because after a while I can't view them or see them. Very frustrating when I go to use this app and my conversations have disappeared! a message comes up saying " Nothing yet", even though I have just finished having a conversation with someone. This needs to be fixed!


The notifications are not working right. When I get messages the notification doesn't come through until hours later & that's usually after someone has sent me several messages over the span of 6 hours. Fix the problem.


I have used this app for years and never had a problem it was great but within the last couple months it has been getting worse and worse. Wont let my messages go through and wont notify me when I have a message. I have checked all of my settings and notifications are on and some of my friends have been having the same problem with theirs.


This app uses permissions in the background, such as your camera and microphone, even when you're not using them in the app, or even the app itself. Very suspicious as to why the app needs to use the camera when you don't even have the app open. I gave it two stars because it at least does what it advertises, albeit while secretly and improperly using your camera and microphone.


Amazing app!!! So hurt their getting rid of it in so many chats thats pretty active and no other apps can even compare please please dont get rid of kik!! Helos pass my time with my loads of friends now they are getting rid of it everyones scattering to find new apps and now we are losing touch!!!!😭😭💔💔


Good overall, but there's one major irritant. The Kin purchase has stopped working completely the last couple of months or so. What do I do with the Kin balance in my account now? It's absolutely worthless! Other than that one maddening obstacle, your app is a winner!


I typically love this app... however, lately when I've been added into chat rooms no matter what there is the issue with sharing gifs that give the error message that you can only share emojis, gifs, and stickers... why would I be getting this message when sharing a gif??? doesnt make sense??? its happening to all users and not just me. I've had people I've added into my rooms have the same issue. this needs to be fixed. once fixed I will adjust my rating and review.


Its good for messaging friends and joining groups but sucks when it comes to creating public groups, first of all you need a tag for your group but only 1 group can have a certain tag? How am I supposed to make a group if the tag is taken. For example #talk or #friends, I cant use either of these because another groups tag is that, what if I want my group to be about friends or talking? I also think you should be able to have a description for your group if you have the chance to make one.


So many glitches on this app and more bots than people. Used to be good but not anymore. Such a shame. I cant change my pfp witnout the app crashing, other ppls pfp keep dissapearing, blocked ppl keep somehow becoming unblocked and i have to reblock them, themes to chat rooms keep disappearing. Andd sorts of stuff like this and its ridiculous because nothing gets done about it...ever!


Unprofessional runners who don't know what to do with their app, if you want a RELIABLE and actually fun app to talk on, get discord, it takes WAY less room, and is EXPONENTIALLY more fun and innovative. This thing took up a whole gigabyte of storage before I deleted it (because they said they were taking down the app with hardly any notice :/) after me and my friends went to discord, we talked more and can play together too!


Kik was great when I first got it, but now I regularly experience issues. A few months ago, video chat crashed for multiple users, and customer service didn't even care. Today, I had more than an hour delay on messages, which has happened several times in the past. It's good enough, but be prepared to get frustrated a lot.


its very good App but i am finding it difficult to log in. Every time it shows " its taking long time to log in please try after some time. today i tried and logged in but now in evening messages are not being delivered. Same problem continues. Any body from technical tem can resolve this matter?


Ive used this app for years and its come a long way however theres still things that need work. It wont let me create a public group an error keeps coming up. I would like to be able to filter my chats so I can keep my group chats in a seperate place than my 1 on 1 chats. Just a little bit more care in making this app user friendly and not giving us more emojis.


Constant use of camera in the bacground. WHY OH WHY??? that crashed the rating for 3 to 1 Slows my phone a bit. My issues are with the gallery. 1) cropping of the pics in the album mode and in the text field. 2) not able to select more then one pic from the album view or preciew them 3) constant box to sync my phone contacts 4) no dark theme


Kik is a wonderful app, with its group feature one of the best out there to connect strangers with similar interests. It is the best social app to connect with unknown people. The Bots are good too. The major thing you have to add is an option for sending pdf s and voicemails. The only other thing which needs to be addressed, are the bugs. It needs better net connection, doesn't work in slower ones. And it crashes many a times. Though overall, I still wish Kik to grow more. Good Luck!


I've had this app for many years. And Im disappointed with the fact that they took off all the old ways to meet people and replaced it with groups you can join. From my experience, that's done nothing but make it a lot more difficult. It has even caused a lot of problems between people on the app. Quite frankly, this app isn't worth a download anymore.


This app is missing a lot of features that every other messenger have. It's also become very buggy since Android 9. The internal browser is terrible You cannot copy and paste links when they're in a message with no other text before or after it. The notifications have been broken with the notification tray for months. No quick reply in the notification tray. Group admin features are lacking. I've slowly been using it less and less. I only use it for communicating and not giving out my #


I've used this app before and it has been an amazing experience itself, but now whenever I try to log in, heck even make an account, it freezes up my phone and doesn't let me enter. Please resolve this issue


I've met people here, friends to. All these scares of it shutting down, only for people to keep saying that its really going this time :/. This is the best app ill ever have, and there is nothing that can replace it, so y'all better stay online for a long, long time because this app is more than just an app, this app is Kik, a safe place sometimes, other times its a home, maybe a family, or local get together coordinator. Point is we would all be sad if it went, because its the best ever. 😁


I've had this app since it came out in 2010. It had its ups and downs, put it has became one of my primary forms of messaging people. So sad to see it getting shut down as I now have to find a new app to use. Hopefully they can make another app like this one, if not it's been a good run.


I really wish you wasn't going to shut this app down. I have used it for years now. From the first day it came out. I have friends that we talk on Kik because it's easy. Even family in the service that I can talk to easy with this app. There is many people asking for the owner to please not shut it down. ☹️😟😣😔 Please. No one really cares about kin coin. Please listen to the ones who use this. Sale it to someone who will keep it running. Not give it up. It was your dream at one time.


I gave this app 3 stars because I forgot my password and so I had to change it. When I changed it and logged back in I lost all of my messages and I also don't get notified when I have a message until I go into the app itself. Plus when I log into the app on one device it logs me out of the app on another device. These issues need to be fixed then I will rate it higher.


Well it used to be five stars until they took the video chat away from group chats. My friends and I have been using it to video chat, because some of us live in different states, and they decided to take that away, so we had to go to another server because kik can not provide that feature for some reason anymore.


Super unhappy to hear this app is going away. I hope someone fills the gap in this market. It's the best way to talk to people. I use it daily with family and friends and like hit more than texting. I will miss you Kik! Thank you to everyone who kept this app running well for the last five plus years. I loved it.


Server is always down you can't chat with anyone cause the server is always down on 09/25 it was up and working about 4 hours the rest of the time it was down ever since they added Kik friends finder to server the service has sucked been trying all day trying to chat with friends the system is down only download app if you don't want to chat with friends


Although this app is nice for anonymous chat it lacks few things. Like when i have Kin more than enough to add or start chat or with more friends i get blocked or banned i mean why? Is it like Facebook or what? For adding people here i get banned, well if that so then why do we get so many kins we can't even spend it on any specific thing rather than buying some not so cool themes or spending it on buying few chats. It sucks. KiK change this banned/ blocked feature


It's a fast messaging app. I enjoy talking to new people and the new features that have been added are great such as the interests options for your profile. Although i wish they'd add "cg/l" or "ddlg/mdlb" option in the topics for the "meet new people" chat bot.


Wow I hadn't a clue this app was closing for good. It always worked wonderfully for myself, almost 6 years on this app, I was introduced to it buy a guy i grew really close with, one of the greatest romantic,friendship, connections of my lifetime. Sadly he moved on to better things but I will forever be grateful to this app for bringing me great profound memories and convenience. It seems so surreal that the app is vanishing, bittersweet but thank you Kik, you were good, you were vedy vedy good.


I have been Kik user for sometime now,loved the app.but today i found out that i cant live video call anyone anymore!ca you please give me an explanation as to why this has happend?its not just with me its happend to others too....that is the reason for my 3 stars!


Very disappointed in the lack of communication and the fact that I wouldn't have known the chat was shutting down if someone hadnt told me. The choice to focus on kin is an unfortunate one and frankly, a slap in the face to kik users everwhere. I will be uninstalling once i get the last of my contacts migrated elswhere.


Unable to login from few months Some issue in this app. Showing error like its taking longer than usual Try later


Need to put video back on not to mention you also need to fix the messages that way when you log out you will still be able to go where you left off instead of having to do all over again because that gets frustrating


Why video chat is not working in Kik. Is there any chance of restoration of it. Otherwise we exit from the app. In 4G era only texting is not at all satisfactory. Dear, Kik developers do you restore video chat option??? Kindly lemme know. Many users all over the world are looking for and waiting for it.


Ive used this app for over 4 years now, used to be the best thing for a game chat for me without giving away my phone number, super sad to see it shut down. Thank you to whoever kept it running for so long, have lots of great memories of people over the time i used it 😊


Great app, but my video call button just went missing out of nowhere. I can't find it anymore, and when someone calls me I can't even see the bubble or answer it.


Though great for chatting with my friends no matter what I do it's not allowing me to join any groups even non full ones. I logged out, I uninstalled and reinstalled but still cannot Please fix this.


sign in problem.. i can sign in its saying i have poor internet connection but my YouTube is working fine at 720p i havent got any response and i installed it again today but it is showing some kind of error and i cant sign up nor login. i wanted to give 0 star for wasting my data and time but 0 star isnt allowed...sad.


I spent a lot of time on Kik. When everyone else moved on I quickly moved on too, occasionally I would download the app again and see what's new but it didn't take long for me to lose interest, I downloaded it again hoping people I use to stay up late on school nights would I haven't spoken to in years would do the same but no luck. Kik was a great app and like club penguin it's sad seeing them go


Tried using the "meet new people" feature and got repeatedly reported by trolls for no reason. Tried customer service and the literally sent me an email saying "we don't actually answer and questions through the email service we provided to submit your questions." It an app ruined by the people who use it and offers no support from the developers.


I and my friends love this app but some features have been taken off we really enjoy using like group video chat and one on one video chat. Most of my friends work or live outta town and we loved being able to see each other


So i used to get the quizzes and surveys to earn kins but lately (like from a month or 2 ago) they ain't sending me any surveys or quizzes. If you guys can fix it it would be pretty good. Thanks.


video chat has not worked in a few weeks now......10/10/19... video button disappeared for not reason. Read through all the help center followed all suggestions and nothing. Looks like it is a dead app now.


Good App to make friends..esp with the 'Meet Someone' option. It sometimes hang though, the messages dont deliver even when the recipient is online; and then the timer runs out! Lack some chat features like reply/quote messages, sharing GIFs from phone memory. Would give a better rating on further enhancements.


I absolutely love this app but the one thing that bothers me is that everytime I go to a different device or re-log in. My conversations are deleted. Could the makers please fix this small bug? Thank you


Video chat not an option... I can't figure out why this app is not giving me the option to video chat... where the camera is supposed to be in the top right corner, there is nothing. I have all permissions granted. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️


The future of this app and it's functionality is obscure. Suddenly, video chat is no more, without warning or explanation. Keep us informed! Please, and thank you.


I would live to rate Kik higher but the ongoing issue of the app kicking me out and having to log back in and losing all of my conversations is too much for me to give more than one star. I even downloaded it on my tablet and when I went to go sign in it logged me out of my phone and when I signed back in on my phone it logged me out of my tablet. And of course it deleted all of my conversations. I do not understand why. Fix this issue and I may change my review.


Kik is taking up more than 37GB of internal storage on my phone. I've tried several different things to fix it, but nothing has worked. I've tried to find help for this problem, but nothing in the Kik help Center addresses this problem. And emailing the help/support Center was absolutely no help either...


there's no way for me to submit a bug report and emailing your support just got me a reply to use the play store....so I guess this is the only option: If I clear kik from my multitasking on my pixel 2xl running Android 9, notifications still come in but tapping them will not open the app. Nothing happens when I tap the notification. If the Kik app is open, it works fine. I have just about every other popular messaging app that any number of people use on my phone and none of them behave like this. Telegram, fb messenger, Google messages, Hangouts, WhatsApp, Instagram, discord, Tumblr, LinkedIn, outlook, etc. There must be a way for you guys to fix this. Please look into it. I'd just like to tap notifications and read the messages like everything else on my phone.


This is the best Messenging app, the only problem is that you can't sign in to your account on other devices all at once. It automatically signs out from your other device. It's great besides that problem.


Overall a good app, until I try to change my picture. It'll just freeze and stay on that page. I've had to uninstall it a lof of times.


Please don't shut down kik... yes, it has a few issues but it's way better than any other ones out there. I use it more than any app and it breaks my heart to hear it go, goner be hard finding an chat app like kik even if I mange to find one it won't be the same....So, please.... don't shut it down, thank you. 😭 💔


Can no longer send pictures or messages. I had cleard the app cache, logged off, reset my phone and still wont work


The app is shutting down soon...so I wouldn't bother downloading it. It was good while it lasted though. I guess WhatsApp and Viber will have a few more downloads over the coming months. Lol


this app is not even letting me sign in. the 1st experience itself became bad. keeping on showing loading in username and email section. when I click sign in inbetween this loading after finishing every blanks they say there is an error, check u r connection. If I didn't had any proper connection how will I download this app??


After this update i cant post anything no videos no pics nothing..........dont know why......? When i try to post somthing kik app always crash........pls fix this as soon as possibale........pls fix this I have real me 3 pro phone with 25 gb free space


I love the app just fine up until they took the video camera feature away yesterday. Now it's no different from any of the couple hundred other messaging apps. So what the point?


I used this app for talking to my friends. Until I realized how unsafe it can be. There are Bots that are fun to use, but also bots that ask for pictures of you or personal information. I don't think that kik is an 100% safe messaging app. But I think using it in general is fun. Thanks for reading!


Basic functionality is missing, such as selecting multiple messages (for example to delete or copy text or share). Extremely dissapointing. Also, the UI doesn't even allow easy customising. I don't see how this app enjoys popularity given its awkward and poor usage options.


Dear kik team, I have an issue with the app, the messages are delayed and i do t know why. I close the app and rekpen it change from wifi to data and voce versa Uninstall and reinstall the app and the problem seems to happen from server side So kindly check if there is a bug or server issue Thank you


What is going on with this application all of the cameras have disappeared so we can no longer video very unhappy 😡


Takes ages for messages to go through. I only use it to message one person. You could be waiting ages for your message to be delivered. Bad server.


This app is amazing although I could always make video calls on kik and now suddenly my video chat icon is gone. I can't make video chats at all now if someone could help or the company can check it would super appreciate it and take it five stars. Even if anyone can help me I'd super appreciate it


I am kinda upset that they took away the live video chat feature. I used it a lot to video chat with my friends on my android phone. I hope that they will bring this feature back in the next update.


This app should be 18+; there are so many paedophiles. Other than that, it's a great app for making friends, joining groups, learning languages and other cool things... It's good but such a disappointment that there are so many nonces. Would be nice to have: secure messaging, being able to keep conversations rather than all being deleted, verification when joining the app (even with a captcha)


Love hate relationship I've meet some amazing people off of Kik! But they have problems with the purchase of talking to more people! You play the games to get the Kin points to talk to more people, but the purchase never goes through. It's way safer than giving out your actual phone number, or your snapchat. It is DEFINITELY NOT for children. There is alot of perverts. Stay safe.


Literally hate your verification process nowadays claiming that to prove whether user is a bot or not. Seriously!? What a waste of time doing stupid verification process over and over again. Moreover there are more bots than real people who needs to be verified. It would be great if you could remove the verification process asap. If we delete the app and download it after few days, whole chat history gets deleted. What sort of social media platform is this?


I love this app and always will its always been my go to app with messages and i can talk to amazing people. Apparently its shutting down soon and were all upset, dont concentrate on kin and make so many people lose friends and contacts


Fun way to make new teenage friends - if people around you happen to be using it. Isn't as popular and widespread as other options. Still an excellent way to pass the time with friends from across the world.


Wow. To verify against spam you have to do this ridiculous puzzle with Gray animals that you can barely tell what they are let alone get them into the right position. Ridiculous. Change the verification puzzle asap


i would have given it a 5 but there is a problem there is a verification to see if the person using it is a real person or a robot the thing is that there are 20 steps and that is not right its actually a waste of time because i wanted to chat with my friends and i couldnt because of the 20 step verification. if i take more than 5 seconds to answer it, it would restart me all over again.if j were you i wouldnt use this app.😡😡hate it


Chats with friends reset randomly and a few bugs exist where it asks you to chat with someone that you were previously chatting with. Also can't search for direct people. The layout is ugly too. I recommend other social media sites over this one.


Loved this app for years. Theres nothing like it. Its nasty that it's being taken down so the creator can focus on kin and avoid a lawsuit. Clearly cares solely about revenue rather than the users. Totally sucks.


Trying to login to my account and it makes me go through a TWENTY STEP verification. My phone screens messed up so i can barley see whats even happening. Im supposed to put the animal thats infront of the other animals upright and thats hard to do with white lines going horizontally across you entire screen.


The app is great but the video chat disappeared have no clue how to get it back tried almost everything the help section told me still nothing wish someone would help!! (Galaxy 10s user)
