After its first few months offering dozens of chatbots, Kik says users have caught on and exchanged nearly 2 billion messages with brands, entertainment companies and publishers on the platform.

According to statistics released today by the Canadian messaging app, users have exchanged 1.8 billion messages with the more than 20,000 bots created by developers since Kik first opened the floodgates in April. The momentum could be good news for brands on the platform hoping to build engagement with fans.
