Hike Messenger Is Going to Shut Down
Hike has decided to shut down its messenger service on January 6, 2021, and is giving users till January 14 to migrate their data to other platforms. CEO Kavin Mittal did not give a specific reason for the shutdown but tweeted that the network effects of global messaging services are too strong for India to maintain its own messenger.
Hike messenger is an app that connects users through a social network. In December, it set a daily messaging record of one billion messages shared, and in January, it noticed a record of 40 billion messages shared monthly. As a messaging startup, harmony within the team is just as important as acquiring users. In a study by CB Insights, 42% of failed messaging startups suffered from poor team harmony. Vibe by Hike has a promise of safety to keep users safe. This is apparent in the statement that it will not accept creepy or fake accounts.
Vibe By Hike Messenger is a free mobile messaging app for Android and iOS. It lets users text their contacts, send stickers and attach files. In addition, it has audio and video calling capabilities. The app is available on Google Play and the iOS Play store.
Hike, the parent company of the popular instant messaging app, is bringing its game features to the mobile version. It will soon be integrating HikeMoji, or animated avatars, into both Rush and Vibe. Kavin Bharti Mittal, the company’s founder, has hinted that the company will move away from a single-app strategy to a multi-app strategy.
The company’s latest app, a byte sized game called Rush, is launching today on the App Store and is soon being released for Android users. Hike Messenger first came out in December 2012 and was once regarded as a potential competitor to global messaging services. By the end of March 2019, it had over two million weekly active users spent more than a third of their time on the app each day. The company aims to turn its messaging service into a business by 2020.

Facebook blocked ads
Hike messenger is a messaging app that lets users leave private messages and share them with friends. It has a user base of 70 million in India and handles over 30 billion messages a month. The app was launched in December 2012 and has recently been targeted by Facebook, which also owns WhatsApp. Last month, WhatsApp blocked links to Telegram for users. The links were not treated as hyperlinks, and the block was confined to the Android version. Users on iOS and the web are not affected by the block.
Hike, which offers free messaging, claims that Facebook has blocked its ads. Facebook offers an option to send people to the website of the relevant product, but Hike has been blocked from using this option. The company believes the problem is a technical glitch, but has written to Facebook to seek a solution. Facebook has not publicly replied to Hike’s allegations but has denied blocking advertisements for the messaging app.
Lack of funding
Lack of funding has become an issue for Hike Messenger. While it’s popular in India, the company’s user base has stagnated and the product is unprofitable. It has been backed by investors with deep pockets but that money can’t sustain the product for long, especially with its comparatively small user base.
Hike Messenger was founded by Kavin Bharti Mittal, the son of Airtel founder Sunil Bharti Mittal. It was founded in December 2012 and received $21 million in funding from Bharti Softbank and $65 million from Tiger Global. It later received investments from other investors, including Tencent Holdings and Foxconn Technology Group.
