Everything You Need To Know About Kik Groups

Once you have found kik usernames you are ready to start joining and making your own Kik groups.

What are Kik Groups?

Kik groups is one of the best ways to keep track of and talk to all of your friends at once. There are two types of groups: public and private. Private groups you have control over who can join.

Private Groups

In private groups you can:

  • Send photos
  • Send videos
  • Send GIFs
  • Video Chat

Private groups can only be joined by invitation, group link, or scanning the group kik code. You can find out more about kik codes here.

How many friends can join my Kik group?

There is a limit of 50 people per kik group. This includes yourself, so 49 people technically.

Public Groups

For safety reasons, on March 30th 2017, Kik made some change regarding public groups. The reason was because Kik users have to feel safe and respected when using Kik. Kik is making user safety their top priority.

The changes include:

  • Only being able to send Kik smileys stickers and GIFs for the first 24 hours that you join a public group
  • If you are banned from multiple groups, then they put in a filter which will prevent you form joining any new groups for 48 hours.
  • Public groups are also restricted in the sense that you can only join so many in a 24 hour period

Are public groups visible to everyone?

Anyone with Kik can join the group as long as they are not breaking the 50 user limit. With public groups, you do not have control over who can join your group. If you want the ability to control your Kik group then you must create a private group.

Why would I join a public group?

Public groups allow users to meet friends which have the same interests as you.

How can I join a Kik group?

To join a Kik group you can do so by scanning a kik code, tapping the group link, or by invite. In addition to this, if the group is public, then you can join it by search.

If you have a Kik code and you want to join the group, just pull down from the top of the main chat. This should open the scanner screen. After that just point the devices camera at the Kik code. You should automatically join the group.

If instead you want to search and join a public group then:

  • Open up the main chat list and press the + icon
  • Then tap the Public Groups Icon
  • Start searching for topics your interested in
  • When you find a Kik group that you like tap it and click Join

Note: You cannot switch a public group to a private group

The only way to do so would be to create a new private group and add everyone that was in it from the public group.
