Hike messenger has been updated to version 184.108.40.206 that delivers a smoother experience. The update fixes long message load times, with the crew at Hike stating, "we are pretty sure we have broken the speed record with this update."
Here's the changelog for the update:
Super Fast Loading of Messages: Have you ever experienced this? You receive a notification for a new hike message, you tap on it, hike opens, and then the waiting begins. Seconds seem like minutes. The message don't immediately show up inside hike. If you can relate to this, then this update is specially made for you! We are super happy to announce that the wait is now officially over! You have to experience it to believe it. Trust us!
New Sticker Packs: To celebrate the above victory we are throwing in 7 new sticker packs! You will be happy to know that the new sticker shop is over 75% complete! The wait is just a little longer before you have all the stickers to choose from.
Hike is constantly gaining traction in South-East Asian countries thanks to features such as hidden chats, ability to send text messages to offline contacts and regional stickers. Let us know what you guys think of the messaging platform in the comments.
Thanks for the tips Ishan, Shiba and Anindya!
