Hike Messenger has introduced wallet service through its latest app update. With UPI support enabled in Hike 5.0, users can now do free and instant bank-to-bank transfers with their friends.

The key features of Hike Wallet are:

With Unified Payments Interface (UPI) support enabled in Hike 5.0, users can now do free and instant bank-to-bank transfers with their friends. What’s exciting is that this works even if their friends aren't on Hike.

For those who don’t actively use a bank account, Hike still allows you to send and receive money with your friends through the Wallet.

A Blue Packet is simply a beautifully designed envelope that users can insert money into and send to their friends. Users can choose from over 10 different beautifully crafted envelopes and also add a personalised message to it to celebrate those special occasions. A Blue Packet can be sent to an individual or even a group of friends. If you give Blue Packets to a group of your friends, you can have a little fun and select how many people in the group should get it. It works on a first come first serve basis and a Blue Packet when sent expires in 24 hours!

With the new Hike 5.0, users can now recharge their phones and pay their postpaid bill right from the app. This removes the need to have one more app just for paying mobile bills, thereby saving space on their phone and removing the need for them to add yet another app.

“Over the last 6 months, we’ve been working to bring a brand new experience to our users with one question in mind – How do we take all the things that users love about Hike and make it even better? Hike 5.0 is our most ambitious step in that direction till date,” said Kavin Bharti Mittal, Founder and CEO, Hike Messenger.

Hike has introduced personalisation with ‘App Themes’. And if you’re staying up late and chatting in darkness, Hike has dedicated a theme - the ‘Night’ theme.
