Kik launches Jam music community on its mobile messenger app

If you’re a big fan of music, you may want to download Kik Messenger as today the Canadian messaging company announced that it was rolling out a pilot of its Jam music community that it says is “built around the world’s best bands and artists.”

While the initial launch is being limited to a “few hundred thousand people” as Kik tweaks the service and makes any necessary changes, users should find quite a bit of content to digest.

“Fans can find profiles of their favorite artists by searching for their names on the homepage of the Jam site,” Kik said of the launch. “Each profile functions as a Kik site that can be shared with friends. The sites host photos, videos, artist bios, and links to buy merchandise and tickets to upcoming shows.”

Jam was inspired, in part, by the success of a similar project Kik ran for One Direction way back in 2013. 1.3 million people checked in to the band’s Kik profile according to Kik while the site was only available for a short time.

Kik hasn’t said when an official launch will take place, but stay tuned to TruTower and follow us on our social networks to be kept informed of any new developments.
