Free Group Calling Launched By Hike Messenger

Hike Messenger, headed by Kavin Mittal, son of Bharti Enterprises chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal, on Friday launched free group calling where users can connect up to 100 people.

The calling feature, which will work over 4G and Wi-Fi to begin with, is available only on Android but will also be available on Windows and iOS by the end of the year, the company said in a statement.

“With the introduction of group calling, Hike has also dropped the beta tag on VoIP (voice over internet), officially rolling out the feature. Now, with the tap of a single button, you can connect up to 100 people in one call. It’s that simple. No more pins, no more dial-in numbers and no more putting people on hold. Making a group call has never been this easy,” hike messenger founder and CEO Kavin Bharti Mittal said.

Hike was launched in December 2012 and has over 35 million users. It has raised $86 million from Tiger Global and BSB till date.
