OTTAWA – August 18, 2016 – Kwilt, the maker of the Kwilt Personal Photo Platform, announced today the availability of the Kwilt Photo BOT for Kik Messenger.
Because an image is worth a thousand words, today, messaging platforms allow users to share photos in their chats. However, these photos have to be local to the smartphone’s photo gallery, leaving many more interesting photos stored on social networks, in the cloud or at home out of reach. With the Kwilt BOT for Kik, this limitation does no longer apply and users can now source photos from anywhere and from anytime and insert them seamlessly into their Kik conversations.
“As messaging platforms open up to dedicated apps and BOTs, hundreds of millions of active users are eagerly looking for new features to enhance their preferred chat apps’ experience” said Marc- Antoine Benglia, CEO of Kwilt Inc. “Our Personal Photo BOT for Kik Messenger is the perfect Kwilt platform extension in this fast growing ecosystem at the crossroads of social messaging and personal media.”
BOTs are rapidly evolving as vehicles to enrich messaging platforms and photos are the right media for consumers to illustrate their stories. The Kwilt BOT for Kik is an amazing example of the way the Kwilt Photo Platform can be leveraged in specific applications that can benefit from accessing users’ photos. Developers themselves can also use the Kwilt API and SDKs to create BOTs and add-ons for all sorts of environments.
Kwilt BOT for Kik Messenger is available immediately for free from the Kik BOT shop on iOS and Android and online at https://bots.kik.com/#/kwilt.
Founded in 2014 with offices in San Francisco, California, and Ottawa, Canada, Kwilt, an award-winning digital media solutions innovator, gives consumers direct access, on multiple platforms, to all their digital photos wherever they are stored—at home, on their mobile, in the cloud or on social networks in real-time through its unique photo platform.
