Can anyone tell me the difference between "kalau" and "jika"? Are they interchangeable?

Can anyone tell me the difference between "kalau" and "jika"? Are they interchangeable?

"kalau" and "jika" are synonyms.
"kalau" is less formal.
They have the same meaning ==> if, when (conditional when).

See the first definition of these words in KBBI:

https://kbbi.web.id/kalau

kalau/ka·lau/ p
1 kata penghubung untuk menandai syarat:
-- keluar, harus minta izin dulu;
2 seandainya:
-- ia tidak mau membayar utangnya, apa yang akan kauperbuat;
3 bagi; adapun:
-- saya, perkara itu mudah saja memecahkannya;

https://kbbi.web.id/jika

jika/ji·ka/ p
kata penghubung untuk menandai syarat (janji);
kalau: -- hari tidak hujan, saya akan datang;

The first definitions of both wordfs are identical:
kata penghubung untuk menandai syarat.
conjunction word to mark the condition/requirement.
