Kik Bot API vs Microsoft Bot Framework: What are the differences?
What is Kik Bot API? Build a bot and get direct access to more than 275 million registered users. On Kik’s chat platform, developers can build, grow, and (soon) monetize for a highly engaged teen audience. About 40 percent of U.S. teens use Kik. There’s nothing to download, no icons to add to the homescreen, and no memory hogging. And on Kik, your bot could have direct access to more than 275 million registered users.
What is Microsoft Bot Framework? Connect intelligent bots that interact via text/sms, Skype, Slack, Office 365 mail and other popular services. The Microsoft Bot Framework provides just what you need to build and connect intelligent bots that interact naturally wherever your users are talking, from text/sms to Skype, Slack, Office 365 mail and other popular services.
