Positives


Good application for Messaging with a lot of stickers. Ability to send document files along with audio and video files. Better than WhatsApp in this regard. Hidden mode for private chat. Membership of the Groups can be as big as 500 as compared to 50 in WhatsApp.

Negatives


Daily Message from Hike. The quality of the photos send through hike reduced as the file size is decreased.


Bottom Line

A better messenger app than WhatsApp. Groups with up to 500 members, better voice calls, free sms if the receiver is not online (only within India), regional sticker, ability to send documents along with photos, video and audio. Definitely better than WhatsApp. Sadly, it is not as aggressively marketed as WhatsApp because Hike is an Indian company and there is no support from giants like FB.
