Since its release back in 2010, the Kik messaging application has been a popular choice for both iOS and Android users. Unlike other messaging services, Kik allows mobile users to remain anonymous by not requiring them to provide a legitimate phone number. Another great aspect, though, is that users can access their Kik profile on a PC. Here's how users can download and use Kik messages on PC.
1. Use Kik on Computer by Chrome Extension
If you're someone that uses Google Chrome a lot, then you may benefit from installing the Kik chrome extension. All you need to do is open up the Chrome browser and follow the steps as below:
Step 1. Open Chrome Web Store(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions) and type in the search bar 'Kik Messenger'.
Step 2. The correct one should be at the top of the results, and you can click 'ADD TO CHROME'.
Step 3. Select 'Add Extension' to install. Then you can log in and chat with your friends on Kik.
2. Download Kik App on Computer using BlueStacks
The Kik app is only available to iOS and Android users, which means the PC version is also only designed for those users. Therefore, a great way to get the full Kik app on your PC is to download some external software which imitates those operating systems, such as BlueStacks. BlueStacks is a piece of software that emulates a mobile device, and essentially turns your PC into an iOS or Android device so you can run mobile apps. This is how you do it:
Step 1. Google BlueStacks Emulator, and download the software from their official website.
Step 2. Once the download is complete, open the .EXE file to kick start the installation.
Step 3. When that's finished, type 'Kik for PC' or 'KIK Messenger' in the search bar within BlueStacks.
Step 4. Click on Install and then start using Kik on your PC.
3. Download Kik App from Windows Store
Well, this method could be controversial because it doesn't work for all users. We have tested this but it only works for several Windows computers, which probably is relevant with Windows version. But if it works, then it is the simplest way - it can be completed in just a couple of clicks from the start menu from your Windows computer. So, that's worth a try. See how to do this:
Step 1. Bring up the start menu, type in 'store' in the search bar or just find the icon.
Step 2. Once you're in the Microsoft Store, you can again use the search bar, to type in 'Kik Messenger'.
Step 3. When the correct one pops up, click on it to commence the download.
However, if you just need your Kik messages and you're the type of person that cherishes simplicity and don't want to go through the above methods, why not let the iMyFone D-Port Pro tool retrieve your Kik messages for you?
