Kik Messenger has really been changing its look on Android lately. Back in July iOS-inspired circular profile pics made their rounds with an update, and now another part of the UI is getting a little tweaking today.

In particular, as you can see in the above screenshots, the new update tweaks how photos sent (and received) look to you and your friends. On the left, you see the old UI prior to today’s update. On the right, you see the new look and feel, which makes the application look a little sleeker and more modern.

The new update also includes the usual round of bug fixes and performance improvements, but as is usually the case, these weren’t broken down individually, so were probably very minor.

Lately, Kik has been expanding beyond messaging into content via its Kik Cards, much like WeChat, Tango, and others have been. Most recently, the company launched a Kik Card for The Giver. The company also partnered with Glympse to provide its users with location-sharing features.

The new Kik update can be obtained via Google Play Store.
