Users who want to download and use Kik on their laptops need to go to the Kik website, select a download suited to their operating system and then get contact information from friends to begin messaging. The system is very simple and only requires account names in order to connect two chatting parties, making it easy to get started talking.
Downloading Kik is simple. The program is small and is ready to use as soon as user settings are established and the download is complete.
- Download Kik
- Configure settings
- Establish contacts and chat
The user must first download Kik and wait for the download process to complete. Once that is complete, the program will automatically begin installation, which can be confirmed or denied by the user. Installation takes only a few minutes.
During the installation process the user can configure general settings, such as when Kik boots up, what sounds it produces and what information it is allowed to access. These settings can be changed at any time, and users can simply select to use all default options during the installation process in order to save time.
Once Kik is installed and configured, all users need are contacts. Other Kik users have distinct addresses which, once acquired, let users contact them and chat.
