Send free SMS messages

Hike Sticker Chat—also known as Hike News & Content—is a free Indian chat and instant messaging app developed by Hike Private Limited for mobile. It enables you to chat for free with any other user of the service. You can find many remarkable similarities of this application to other social features such as WeChatWhatsApp, and Line.

What does Hike Sticker Chat do?

Hike Sticker Chat allows you to save the cost of sending SMS by exchanging free messages with anyone else who has the app installed, regardless of what smartphone platform you are using. It can even send SMS messages for free to someone—though this service only works in India.

Here, besides just chatting via instant messaging, you can attach images, video, audio, and voice messages to your conversations. There's also an option for sharing your location with the person you're chatting with. A group chatting feature is included, too.

Hike Sticker Chat includes a wide selection of fun emoticons that you can add to your chats, which are grouped into three different types of characters. For the privacy-conscious users, it also offers a handy "Hidden Mode", which allows you to hide chats that you want to keep private and you can set passwords to protect them further. 

Is Hike Sticker Chat safe to use?

With this messenger tool, you can guarantee that you are safe and secure as it encrypts your personal data with a roughly military-grade class encryption.  It consists of a 128-bit advanced encryption standard (AES) and 2048-bit RSA. Moreover, all files uploaded to the platform are backed up with the app's built-in cloud service

The setup process is as simple as possible, just like in other chat messaging tools such as Viber. You only need to enter your phone number and you'll be sent an activation code via SMS immediately. Enter this into the field provided and you're good to go.

You can easily view all your friends on here by tapping the Contacts button. This will pull up a list of people from your phone contacts book who have Hike Sticker Chat—as well as allowing you to invite friends who don't have this app installed yet.

Is Hike Sticker Chat better than WhatsApp?

Ultimately, Hike Sticker Chat is very similar to WhatsApp. It shares almost all of the same features—though it could be said that WhatsApp is a bit more polished. It doesn't have the customization options of WhatsApp, which allows you to change the background image of the chat window. WhatsApp has a more varied range of emoticons, too. Nevertheless, the user interface of this messaging app still looks great.  This is a fast and easy platform to virtually chat free-of-charge with your buddies. 

Significant improvements have been made to Hike's messaging, making it faster on GPRS and 2G networks.

Hike Sticker Chat is also continuing to be streamlined to make it less resource intensive, allowing better performance on low-end Android devices.
