Alternative for BlueStacks to use Kik application

We all love Kik online messenger, with its attractive chat interface, chat bots that get you entertainment along with utility and a pioneering camera-chat integration. I cannot think of an app like Kik that integrates so many features in one easy interface.


That said, the app is not available for Windows PCs, and it is a major let down. The way out suggested has been to use an Android Emulator like BlueStacks. But as not all people are fond of the app, I supposed I could write a short post of other ways to use Kik app on your Windows PC.


  1. Using a different Android Emulator

    BlueStacks has several alternatives that can help you access Kik on PC. Some of them are Andy, Droid4x and ARC Welder. If you want a completely online option that doesn’t require you to download any software, go for ManyMo. ManyMo is a completely online emulator that you can access on your favorite Web browser. The service, however, is not free like the offline options available.

  2. Emulate a different OS

    If you’re not too fond of Android, you might prefer to emulate a different smartphone OS, like iOS. Try out software like iPadian or Air iPhone Emulator. iOS emulators are also likely to be free. Android isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so these alternatives are welcome. I personally recommend giving iPadian a try.

  3. Invest in a cheap, Kik enabled device

    This could be a last recourse, and I don’t know if you’ll be that desperate to use Kik. But in case you have money in your piggy bank, you can consider buying a device which can run Kik messenger. A Blackberry with BB OS 10.2.1 or above could be a good option. A cheap Android could do the trick too.


Hopefully this leaves you with at least one viable option to try out. Do tell me which one you like, and how the option turns out for you.
