Kik Chat Picture Messaging | It’s Here!
14 February 2011
Kik chat now supports picture messaging (as long as you’ve got the latest beta..) This feature will make it’s way into the next kik update, which should arrive in the next few days – provided apple sticks to their typical (terribly slow) schedule for pushing app updates through.
The first version of these new picture messaging features allows users to take a picture from within a chat. They are able to decide whether they like the picture, or they want a retake, and then they can insert it into their chat – all very seamless.
We don’t have the ability to select pictures we took previously, but I’m sure that feature is coming. Even if it isn’t.. who cares – it’s kind of cool to know that all the pictures you receive were actually taken right then.
Once you send or receive a picture message, you can click it in the conversation to view it full screen
Along with the new picture messaging features come a few new settings for your kik display picture. You will now be able to view the full size display pictures of all your contacts.
