WhatsApp vs Kik: Which Is The Best Messaging App?
Whatsapp and Kik both are regarded as the most convenient way to communicate with each other. Both are text messaging app that replaced the traditional SMS service of texting.
With both of them being downloaded by millions of people across the globe, they have their own unique features to offer to their customers. In this article, I will compare these two apps and will find out, in what ways one is better than the other.
User Base-WhatsApp has a larger user base than the Kik App. This means that it is easy for you to connect with the people on WhatsApp as they are already using it. According to recent statistics, about 1.5 billion people are using WhatsApp today. So When you use an app that has a huge user base you are saved from the pain of inviting users to the app.
Phone Number verification
Users can keep their identity anonymous on Kik that be both an advantage or a disadvantage. Some people tend to feel more comfortable to keep their identity anonymous while expressing themselves but this anonymity has a lot of concerns when it comes to cases of teens being becoming victims to the online predators. WhatsApp is relatively safe to use as you cannot contact someone unless you have their phone number.
Integrated Web Browser
The inbuilt browser is in the first of its type in any messaging app. The inbuilt browser provides you with the option of sharing website content with your friends without leaving the chat. WhatsApp does not have this feature and it is very unlikely that they will inculcate it.
