VK is the official app of this Russian-origin social media platform that, although it started in 2006 as a response to the dominance of Facebook, now offers many more features that are typical of many other social media platforms. With this app, you will find practically everything you could want from a social media platform: a powerful instant messaging tool, a video platform, an AI assistant, and a tab that looks very similar to TikTok.

Your account in seconds

You must enter an email address or phone number to create a VK user account. Whichever option you choose, you will have to verify your identity manually. You must also select a secure password incorporating uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols. The best part? Once you have a user profile, you can log in with a password, using your phone or even a QR code. Privacy and security are among the most important pillars of this social media platform.

Much more than Russian Facebook

Some people believe VK is simply a Russian version of Facebook. While this was true before 2010, VK now offers many more features. From the Home screen, you can post all kinds of things for your friends and acquaintances: you can upload photos, videos, text, audio, links, etc. From your Feed, you can see what all your friends are doing and interact with them, leaving comments and reactions. The For You tab, on the other hand, shows you posts that the app thinks will interest you.

Integrated instant messaging

What makes VK very interesting is that it allows you to send direct messages to any social media platform user. And not only that. You can also create private groups with multiple users to share images or audio messages. When sending text messages, you can even set them to self-destruct after one minute. This way, if you want to send sensitive information to a friend, you can do so in the safest possible way.

Short and long videos

VK will offer two very interesting tabs: Clips and Videos. In the first tab, you will have a sort of TikTok or Instagram feed, where you can scroll almost infinitely through short videos. Just as with these other social media platforms, as you watch videos, the algorithm will better curate the content that you like. In the second tab, Videos, you will find long videos, like you might see on YouTube. You can watch movie trailers, long tutorials, and much more here. In total, hours and hours of entertainment await you here.

Marusya, a dedicated voice assistant

Another key feature of VK is Marusya, an AI voice assistant that allows you to carry out quick queries using the microphone of your Android device. Just tap the screen and ask any question, and within seconds, Marusya will answer you. This powerful voice assistant is next to communities, stickers, or livestreams in the Hub tab.

A complete social media platform

Download the VK APK if you're looking for a social media platform that encompasses almost everything you could need on a modern Android device. The app will have news, videos, entertainment, instant messaging, and more. This social network is huge, with over 120 million registered users worldwide contributing quality content daily.
