Hike may soon offer voice calling before Whatsapp

Hike has over 35 million users and is available for Android, Windows, BlackBerry, iOS, and Symbian operating based devices.

Cross platform messenger service provider, Hike may soon offer voice calling facility via its app even when there is a hullabaloo over such services by telecom operators. Hike has actually acquired free voice calling Zip Phone, a US based company offering voice calling service via its app.

Hike’s rival, Whatsapp is reportedly all set to launch voice calling service via its messaging app. Such services are not new at all; infact many messaging applications like Line and Viber are already offering voice calling via its apps.

Launched in December 2012, Hike has over 35 million users and it is said to have over 90 per cent of its users under the age of 25 and residing in India. Currently, it is available for Android, Windows, BlackBerry, iOS, and Symbian operating based devices.
