Hike has launched the new version of the app and the biggest update of Hike 5.0 is Hike Wallet,
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.
Wallet to Wallet: 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.
(Btw, Tencent's packets are red in color)
Kavin adds: “With Blue Packets, we’re going to change the way people send and receive money. We believe we can make that experience fun and also a new form of messaging. Can money be the new Sticker? We believe so. That’s the idea. Our users celebrate so many special moments in their lives. It could be from a simple Thank You or Congratulations to a Happy Birthday. We hope with Blue Packets we can give our users a new avenue to express themselves. We’re really excited about the possibilities with this and can’t wait to see how people use it”.
From the PR: A nifty addition to Hike 5.0 is the all new ‘Magic Selfie’ feature. With just a tap, using Machine Learning techniques, Hike’s camera now smoothens your skin and makes it radiant from any angle, making every single picture of yours count.
