The intention is to use the new funds to expand globally, raising awareness to increase market share, particularly in Kika Technologies key markets — the U.S., Europe, Brazil, and Mexico. The keyboard app has features including swipe gesture control, GIF and emoji sharing, natural language prediction, and support for plugins.

Investor Zhu Ye, CEO of Zeus Interactive, said it was the “detail and passion the engineers and the entire Kika team have for users and making the perfect experience for users,” that made the company standout. The app launched back in 2016, and is available through the Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore. There is also an iOS version in development.
