, lets you instantly and conveniently connect with your friends via real-time messaging. But this is just the beginning. Kik is turning your smartphone into your passport to the world. Are you ready for the ride?
Kik Messenger can be downloaded Android devices and it is now available worldwide! Similar to BBM, you can now message your overseas friends while avoiding carrier fees by using your data plan. Since we have removed the SMS messaging capabilities only people who have the Kik Messenger application can receive Kik messages.
Kik Messenger uses data to send messages so any roaming data charges from your carrier would apply. It helps to use WIFI whenever possible but Kik also works on 2G and 3G networks.
Email addresses are now used to set up Kik Messenger accounts, rather than an SMS verification system. To sign up for Kik Messenger you set up your name and email address. You must also choose a username - which is fixed and cannot be changed. Your email address will be used for things like password recovery.
Kik Messenger is 100% free to download and your phone carrier will never charge you for messages sent or received. Kik Messenger uses data to send and receive your messages so your standard data rates apply. Each Kik message that is sent uses a very small amount of data, less than 1 KB per message.
