The Kik messaging app will remain “alive” thanks to the acquisition by MediaLab


We have almost been able to say goodbye to the Kik messaging appbut thanks to the fact that it has been acquired by MediaLab, it will continue to be alive and kicking in the different app stores such as the Google Play Store.

In fact, its developer announced these weeks ago that he would end up closing the messaging app to focus on his Kin cryptocurrency. It must also be said that thanks to the community of users who are fans of this app, their cries and desperation have been heard by the MediaLab company.

MediaLab has purchased the app and has published a note in which he maintains that Kik will continue with us. But yes, count on the fact that some of the lost features and the introduction of advertising in the app will be recovered.

we talked about that the original Kik development team has disappeared and it is MediaLab that is going to bring its own people to continue developing this app which, in a category as difficult as messaging, still has its market share.

The goal of this new team is to get Kik is a faster, more optimized app with fewer bugs, while introducing changes such as the increase in chat groups and the ability to remove administrators who are not active. Fortunately, they have been open to ideas and feedback from the user community for possible implementation.

Video chat and third-party bots will disappear because they are not optimized enough. Of course, the Ragebot group management tool will continue to be alive for the time being. So Kik will live on thanks to a company called MediaLab and that it has enough reputation for us to take this messaging app that has been on the verge of disappearing into account from now on.
