Posted On: 2017-06-21

Hike Messenger recently launched a brand new feature of 'Hike Wallet' version Hike 5.0 to send and receive money in the easiest manner. This update will allow users free and instant money transfer as the update offers Bank-to-Bank support via UPI enabling a Wallet to Wallet function for non-bank users. 

Additionally, Hike also introduced a beautifully designed envelope where users can insert/transfer money into and send to their friends called ‘Blue Packets.’ A user can choose from over ten different crafted envelopes, added with a personalized message which can be forwarded to friends or family during special occasions. Users can also avail easy recharge options and can pay postpaid bills too.

Founder and CEO of Hike Messenger, Kavin Bharti Mittal said, "Hike 5.0 is the biggest update we've released in the history of Hike. We've worked closely with over 100 of our top hikers to build 5.0. It's been built by our users for our users. With App themes, Night theme and Magic Selfie, Hike 5.0 is packed with some incredibly personal touches that are meant to delight our users. With Hike 5.0 you can personalize your Hike world.”

Hike also announced a reduction in its app size to just 25MB despite adding all the features. The app will now support 128-bit SSL encryption that ensures that communication across the air and wire networks is completely encrypted. The app also includes a 'Night' theme, which will allow users to save their battery at night reducing the glare coming off the screen. The update also supports the 'Magic Selfie' feature.

 "Over the last six months, we've been working to bring a brand new experience to our users with one question in mind - How do we take all the things that users love about Hike and make it even better? Hike 5.0 is our most ambitious step in that direction till date," added Kavin Bharti Mittal
