Hike launches free voice calling to Android users

Hike Messenger today announced the launch of free voice calling to Android users over 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi networks in over 200 countries.

Hike said it will add Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows by the end of Q1 2015.

The launch of the free Hike-to-Hike users follows the acquisition of free calling app Zip Phone last month.

Hike calls are optimized to consume very little data, giving its users more calling minutes per MB of data.

Hike brings free calling


“While building free hike calls, we kept two things in mind. Firstly, India is a very cost sensitive market and as a result we’ve ensured that our service is extremely efficient on data. It means our users can pack in more minutes per MB when calling on hike. Secondly, we’ve made hike’s free calling service available globally in over 200+ countries,” said Kavin Bharti Mittal, founder and CEO, hike messenger.

Launched in December 2012, hike has over 35 million users – mainly Indians — in August, 2014. The company has raised $86 million from Tiger Global and BSB till date.
