What's New in Version 12.1.0
Do you like pizza, sports, or games? Now you can share your interests on your profile and make new friends
Kik has gotten a LOT better over the past few updates! So many bugs that made kik quite insufferable have basically faded out of existence (at least on my device). I quite like the new interests feature, though I would like to make a suggestion. If possible, people could enter their own interests in the text field, so that fans of similar shows could find one another and such. I feel like it would be a great touch and allow the kik profile to be more personalized than just name, photo, and emoji status. Alternatively, you could swap the interest bubbles with a short-in-character-limit bio section? Nothing too long, maybe about the length of a tweet! The only complaint i have (as with any messaging service) is the bots. They have become quite frequent, and find their way often into group chats. I know that these bots are difficult to weed out half the time, but any efforts to control them, I’m all for.
I love it but...
This app is amazing helps me really interact with my friends and school members. Love the features but I wish you can change a certain emoji when you put an emoji status. Hoping for an update that can also change the background to a picture you would like, also with hope one day, that the creators can also put anime stickers or emojis, since the app has cartoon emojis and stickers. That’s just an opinion from someone, who watches anime like Fairy Tail, Naruto, Attack on Titans and etc. Other than that this app is great and amazing to use. Thanks for the app!!
This new update nearly completely ruined the app. I haven’t noticed others having this issue but, most of my open chats have moved to “New Chats. This wouldn’t be a big issue if I could just hit “Start Chatting” but, it’s non-responsive. I thought if I deleted the conversation and tried starting a new chat with the person via their user name it would work... nope. Still can’t use “Start chatting.”
There is no longer a list of contacts when I go to “Find People.” I found that useful even though I’d have some group randoms there from time to time that I had to delete.
Also, I tried blocking a person to remove them from the “New Chats” list since the chat was blank and wouldn’t let me slide to delete it... and they never appeared on the block list.
I was dwindling down my use of the app already. So, no big deal. If this isn’t resolved quickly, I’ll probably just delete it.
If it is, I’ll re-rate the app.. Even if I don’t go back to using.
Sure got me through so boring days though.
I’m conflicted. Greatest app on Earth with a terribly glitchy update? 😂
