Hi, I am Meenal. I'm a travel enthusiast, a movie buff and a cricket fan all wrapped in one. I love to capture moments through my words. Writing is my happy space, it has been a great way of putting all my thoughts out and feel liberated.


  1. Absolutely frustrating that messages aren’t happening in real time. Sending and receiving issues for 3 days. Don’t know who is getting my messages or when. Deadlines are being missed.

  2. I am unable to receive messages from anyone new. I can receive messages from whoever I was already chatting with but if someone new try’s to message me it shows I have a notification and new message but when I open the app it isn’t there and the notifications will not go away

  3. I have an iPhone and I am having the same issues that Josh said above. Show I have notification, but no where in the app can i see any new messages.

  4. Not sure if messages are actually being sent, even though it says Sent…and also the app image shows there is one message, but when I open the app, there are no messages? This has been happening for about a week or more now…

    • Footnote to my post –
      The app notification for one message will not go away either…no messages, and all this started after the last update to the app. I’m on iphone.

  5. @Kik please let’s find something to do bout this issue on ground my Kik isn’t working at all,I can’t text nor receive new chat I don’t know what’s wrong pls find a solution to it

  6. I’m not recieving messages from new people. And I know some people with the same proble. I can say because of that the app is usless. The point is to connect na meet new people….
