Kik Messenger, messaging apps, chatting app

It’s been a couple of months since we’ve received a major update to Kik Messenger, but today, we received an update for both iOS and Android versions of the app.

On Android only (the iOS update was released earlier), circular profile pictures have made a jump from Apple to Android per user requests. This change, while seemingly minor, gives the app a nicer overall look than the previous square pictures could provide.

you can now share your Kik profile on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter

On both iOS and Android, you can now easily share your Kik profile on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter rather than having to take a screenshot or manually share your username another way.

Finally, and again on both operating systems, you can chat with your favorite brands on the application similar to Tango’s recently launched channels as well as BBM’s Channels feature.

The new update is now available in Google Play and iTunes.
