If you want to install and use the Kik app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Kik in the search bar and press Search. Click on Kik application icon. A window of Kik on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Love it (but I don’t like the new updates)

    Ok so I’ve had Kik since 2 years back, it was awesome and worked amazing at that time. So I got a new phone and forgot about it and probably half a year later I got it again, it was great when I opened the app. It worked perfectly and I didn’t have any problems. So as time gone by I noticed a few bugs, example: I own a group so I’m the owner, sometimes when I open the app and a bot joins I try to remove it but it doesn’t give me the option so when I view the members, there’s two of me. The one that’s owner and the one that’s a member. So I ask the members if they see two of me in the members and they say no. I tried closing the app and reopening it but it never works so I just wait it out and let my admins do it for me. The update that I hated is when someone leaves a group chat, you can’t private message them. That update annoyed me a lot because I made some friends in some chats but they left but I can never get in touch with them unless I had them in my contacts which I do not. I’m only see that the bugs happen in the group chats. I really hope they fix them because I love this app!

    Troubleshooting with the app has completely crashed for me an my friend almost, and it’s become very annoying. Our messages will get stuck on Sent and it’s a gamble if they will arrive or not to the chat, and half of the messages never display Delivered and that’s also a gamble for if they actually arrived or not. We’ll get notification sounds for new messages and once we open that chat that we guessed it “arrived” in, it’s not there most of the time and we have to send the message again. I’ve tried doing what the help articles for Connection troubleshooting and Red Recipients along with the Notifications article which are all the same thing, but they’ve done literally nothing. The only noticeable difference was at the beginning whenever one of my messages displayed Delivered, but it never happened again and it appeared to only have worked for the first two minutes. I’ve had to redownload the app as well, which didn’t work in the slightest either. I can’t keep turning my phone on and off every two minutes in the hopes that my messages will actually reach my friends. Please make an effort into fixing this.
  • The Ban System

    By Steven Awesome Man
    Let me start off by saying I am writing this not for my sake but for my girlfriends sake. I have been a member of kik for almost five years. I have always loved the app and enjoyed it a lot. My girlfriend, however, told me about the ban system set in place. I believe the perma ban system you have set up where if you prove there is wrong doing you can lose your account is acceptable. I do not, however, believe that the temporary ban system in place is fair. My girlfriend is an admin of a group chat and is worried because someone is falsely reporting them because their friend was removed from the group because they were rude to others. One of the admins has already received a temporary ban due to these false reports and quite frankly I don’t believe it is fair that they did. I believe a better system for temporary bans should be in place to prevent innocent people to be banned. Thank you for reading this and I really do enjoy the app but I strongly believe that to make the app even better the temporary ban system needs to be changed.

    Video chat isn't working again... It was fixed for a little, then it happened again. Furthermore, now Kik doesn't show "Camera" under pictures that I've taken on Kik. Problem #1: I have been trying to start a video chat over and over, and it keeps saying "Failed to Join Video Chat" because of some "Problem Connecting to Network." Except my network is still perfectly fine. It's letting me send messages in a fraction of a second, so why does Kik suddenly say that my network connection is bad only when I want to start a video chat? The video chat feature was working perfectly fine yesterday, so why isn't it working now? Furthermore, why is it saying that there's something wrong with my own personal network? That's not right. Please fix this, because I'm positive that it's not my network that's acting up - it's the Kik app that's acting up. As for the while camera photo thing, this is brand new to me. I've never had this issue in the past, but ever since today's update, it's happening to me. I was reading up on the update history of Kik and it says this was fixed in the past, but guess what? It's happening again and it needs to be fixed again...

  • Seriously Need an Update...Still

    By Sparkybarr
    I love kik. Its very useful. However, it tends to crash a lot or just be white. I think its weird and kinda stupid how the profile picture has to be like a particular to fit in the circle. Thats really annoying and none of my pictures measure up to that, so it’d be cool if that was changed.

    I’ve been on Kik for almost 5 years. I can no longer meet new people since I don’t have the little blue earth icon. It’s completely disappeared. Please tell me how I can meet new people.

    How de hell did u guys ask someone to confirm he is not a robot with those confusing images of what I have no idea about. You guys are sick for that You should do something about that When you are to confirm you are not robot is more easier than the one you guys have in your app
  • Meet new people chat is messed up...

    By cory.grayj
    I got this app about two years ago and I love it! I’ve met a bunch of new friends and met people who really “understand” me and things I go through. The only complaint I have with the app is the “meet new people” section of the app. You really only get the meet like 15 people before it gives you an 8-20 HOUR cool down. It’s really dumb and I don’t quite understand what the point of it is... pls change it kik!
  • One major disappointment

    It works on the ipad, but it logs out from the phone app when you switch, and then all the convo is lost. I’ve looked for a way to see if it’s archived, but I can’t find anything. If anyone knows anything, I’ve love to hear it.
  • Needs to adjust DPI for the XS Max

    By Magnanimous24
    The app is wonderful, but the DPI update for the XS Max should’ve been out already. It’s odd typing when the keyboard is so huge. Please update. Thanks.

    This app works fine. You can join a meth group, hire a hooker or make a friend who also enjoys beastiality.
