Hike Messenger has announced the launch of Hike 5.0, that offers new features like app themes, night mode and magic selfie.
The new update (Hike 5.0) will allow free and instant bank-to-bank transfer via unified payments interface (UPI) as well as recharge right from the app, Hike Messenger founder and CEO Kavin Bharti Mittal told reporters here. It's not clear if Hike has tied-up with certain telcos for this, and if so then which telcos, or if it will work irrespective of the user's network provider.
Hike introduced their version 5.0 on Tuesday with integration for bank-to-bank and peer-to-peer payment options.
Packets: A Blue Packet is simply a beautifully designed envelope that users can insert money into and send to their friends. "Hike 5.0 is our most ambitious step in that direction till date", he added.
Immediately on opening Hike 5.0, one can notice the new, slick look and feel. The Magic Selfie feature in Hike 5.0 uses machine learning technology to smoothen user's skin and make it radiant. We believe we can make that experience fun and also a new form of messaging. UPI, stands for Unified Payments Interface, launched by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) in August previous year to accelerate the adoption of digital payments in the country. We believe so. That's the idea.
Having pipped Whatsapp that is also working on foraying into digital payment services later this year, the homebred messaging platform has set a target of becoming the leading messaging and payment app in the country.
"We have also introduced something called "blue packets" which brings expressions such as thank you, flying kiss to money... We're really excited about the possibilities with this and can't wait to see how people use it".
