Hike Messenger has introduced new free group voice calling service allowing up to 100 people in a call. The group voice calling can be initiated with a click of a single button once inside a group chat. Hike is introducing the feature on Android and will roll out to iOS and Windows Phone later this year.
Once inside an existing group chat, users can tap on the Hike call button to start using the feature. Hike calls every member of the group and the moment a person gets connected, the call starts. This is similar to conference calls but over Internet protocol.
“Many of us at hike were quite frustrated by how hard it is to make a Group Call today. Adding someone to an already existing call is extremely tedious and even starting a conference call is quite a painful process. Today we’re going to change that with the introduction of Group Calls on Hike. Now with the tap of a single button, you can connect up to 100 people in one call,” said Kavin Bharti Mittal, Founder and CEO, hike messenger.
Hike had recently introduced 4.0 update with over 10 new features. With the launch of group calling feature, hike has dropped the beta tag on VoIP feature. Group calling on hike has been aimed at students and families who love to chat in groups.
