What's New in Version 8.2.0
• So long sidebar! Access your favorite webpages through the web button
• We've heard you loud and clear. Now you can choose from 22 different chat bubble colors
So I like the new colors for chat bubbles, but I'm still not completely satisfied. I think that it's still not individualized as much as it could be. First I think that there should be a color scale for you to choose a color of the bubbles and an option for how intense you want it and you should be able to choose wether or not you want white or black text. I also think that the color you choose should show up on other peoples screens and to distinguish yours when your scrolling though the chat in a hurry trying to find something your personal bubble could be highlighted. You could also line the photo of the person with the chat bubble color. But also keep the standard so people don't have to try to get those old colors of the chat bubbles. I also think that group chats should have bios. For example "welcome to our group...". I also think that the side games and apps should be alittle more stable. There should also be a mute all chats button because sometimes I want to mute one chat and sometimes I just want no messages alerting me for an hour. Kik is a great app and has made communication fun and easy for me and my friends and I honestly use it more than my actual texts, but I do think there is more room for individuality and colorful fun. My three stars is for the update, not the app the app deserves 4 and a half stars because I have had little problems with kik.
Okay, I've been using Kik for 3 years and I don't see any problem with it. I just have a few suggestions.
1) There should be a "Log Out" button. Instead of "resetting" Kik and all your messages are erased, there should be a log out button to simply log out and save precious kiks.
2) I think there should be an option to make your profile picture a video. For instance, we all use profile pictures, so why not use videos? When someone clicks on your profile to enlarge your picture, instead they will see the video you put instead of a picture. The duration could be as long as you want.
3) Group chats. Nice update. But there are people who don't even talk in chats and that's not fair to those who actually want to talk to people in that chat. It's not fair if I go to group "#food" and it's full but only 10 of those people talk. I think you should have like a week to reply to the group chat or you will be automatically removed by Kik. I didn't see the point of everyone wanting new chat colors, but whatever. I'm fine with the app, just the few suggestions up top. Please, don't add video calling. The app is getting bigger and bigger and taking up storage. Soooo, just a few suggestions. :D ✌️
I love how Kik is starting to allow us to customize it to our own.. But there can be some improvement.... I think many people would like to have it to where you are allowed to have your own background, for example.. I'm pretty sure people don't like the blain white background. Maybe you should have it to where you can pick your own colored background with a color mixer or preset colors. Or even put personal images as the background.. Kinda like an improved wallpaper. Also with the chat bubbles you should have some more colors and once again a color mixer. And you can have an app in the Kik Browser to where there is custom made ones and you can upload very own colors. One last thing.. You should be able to rename the Kik contact names and have a multi, color changing chat bubble that goes through all 16.8 billion colors of the color spectrum. Honestly this app is going to explode and everyone is going to use it!
