Kick the latest streaming platform to arrive on the scene entered the mobile space last month. The Kick Mobile app was launched after being announced by streamer and backer Tyler "Trainwreck" Niknam. Kick Mobile is currently available for both Android and iOS users and comes with an advantage over Twitch. Here is all you need to know about the Kick Mobile App. 

Kick Mobile app launch details

Before the Kick Mobile app was officially launched, streamer Trainwreck announced the launch date and created some hype around it. The Kick Mobile app was launched for the Apple App Store on 26th March 2023 while the Google Play Store version was available 31st March 2023. Download the app by heading to this link on the Play Store or by searching for ‘Kick Streaming’. Click here for a link to the Apple App Store. Once it is downloaded you can run the app on your device by logging in with your account details. 

Since its release, the app has crossed over 100,000 downloads. The app is 35.2 MB for Apple devices and 40 MB for Android devices. The app is available for devices with Android 5.0 and above while for Apple devices:

  • iPhone: Requires iOS 13.0 or later.

  • iPad: Requires iPadOS 13.0 or later.

  • iPod touch: Requires iOS 13.0 or later.

  • Mac: Requires macOS 11.0 or later and a Mac with Apple M1 chip or later.

Kick Mobile bypasses transaction tax

Both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store charge a 30% transaction fee. Apps like Twitch compensate for this with higher sub prices on their mobile apps charging users a higher fee on mobile than on the website. When Kick was launched on the Apple App Store, fans noticed that Kick did not charge users the additional fees. Kick bypasses the fees by making you add a payment method inside the app.

Kick has been gaining hype and popularity thanks to its most vocal proponent Trainwrecks, and its loose rules and regulations for content like gambling. The platform promises a “more lenient view on creation, opinion, and content,” as Kick aims to “bridge the gap between creators and the Kick service, putting them first”. With several banned streamers on Twitch making their way to the platform, Kick streaming is definitely making waves, some have raised doubts about the ownership, gambling and cryptocurrency links.
