You can find two types of groups on Kik and those are private groups and public ones.

If you want to talk with your friends and have control over who is joining the group, then private ones are the way to go. You and your friends can exchange messages, photos, gifs, and you can also video chat with each other. You can join a group by getting an invitation, scanning a code, or by a group link.

For both types of groups, private and public, there is a limit of 50 people per one group. When it comes to public groups, you can join them as long there is a space available. Public groups are a great option to meet people with the same interests. When you join a group, keep in mind that you can only send gifs and smileys in the first 24 hours.
