Kik has recently introduced Bots inside the app. Now don’t be alarmed. It isn’t like an apocalyptic doomsday. In fact, it is pretty cool.
With the advancement in natural language processing, technology has been increasingly familiarising itself to us by receiving instructions from speech and text. Raspberry Pi developers have been indulging in it often. And we all know about Siri and Cortana. This is the next step!
Bots have been developed to cater information as required to the user. You can choose which bots to interact with. And no need to download anything for it either; all of the bots are accessible in the same interface of chats. Isn’t that just perfect?
What can you do with Bots? Almost everything you’d want to. Chat with them to get information about brands, products and events. The bots are really fun to use. Open a chat with any of them and you can talk to them like you would with a normal person. Bots can read your language and understand what information you’re looking for. And they provide you the information needed in a matter of seconds. Much faster than Googling, I say.
Bots can also do a lot more for you. You can even play games using them (and not the lame kind where the person guesses the number you’re thinking). Apart from that, you can receive makeup tips, funny videos, Gifs and a plethora of other entertainment and information.
The technology has been replicated in Facebook as well. It was almost a race between the two on who will reveal their bots before. After speculations surfaced in early January this year about the inclusion of bot services in the apps themselves, we have been waiting with bated breath. Kik seems to have made the first place. However, let’s see what Facebook’s bots hold and how they figure next to KIK.
KIK messenger is a very popular app in North America and due to this reason, the company has been very specific when it comes to avoiding such matters. However sometimes some kind of glitches does happen! This one is pretty cool. This popular app is available for all the devices, android, ios and even PC. You can download its Android version from play store and iOS version from iOS store. For PC Version, head over to this article and download KIK for PC.
Meanwhile, the app is gaining great popularity in most areas of the world especially India, America and Canada, which have been the hubs of app users. The team plans to expand its presence in Australia, United & some parts of New Zealand where they have been setting up their office base!
