Everything is changing globally. With the advent of technology you can find that the number of messenger Apps available for Android and iOS have increased to a good extent. Now Hike Messenger App has become the most downloaded App not only on Google Play Store, but also on iOS App Store. Becoming the top downloaded free App is a big achievement which Hike messenger has got. This success and popularity of Hike Messenger will definitely increase the competition among the messenger Apps in India.
I’m really happy with the success and increasing popularity of Hike Messenger, as this App is developed by an Indian company. Hike Messenger is developed by Bharti SoftBank, and with the huge success company must be very happy.
Getting More Downloads than WhatsApp is a Big Achievement
WhatsApp Messenger is one of the most used messenger Apps worldwide. It is really nice to see that Hike is giving very good competition to WhatsApp in India. Previously WhatsApp seemed to be getting the most downloads, but now you can see Hike App listed before WhatsApp in the category of ‘Top Free in Android Apps’.
Daily 3,00,000 people are downloading Hike messenger which is really a very big number. It’ll be interesting to see whether Hike messenger will keep getting more popular. WhatsApp was purchased by Facebook a few months ago, and now it’ll be interesting to see that which steps will be taken by Facebook for making WhatsApp again get on the top of Charts of free downloaded Apps.
Big Role has been played by Marketing Campaigns
Marketing has become one of the most important things for promoting any product. Marketing is one of the reasons which has made Hike messenger get such huge number of downloads.
$14 Million funding received by Hike App is one of the reasons which has improved Hike messenger and good amount has been spent also for the marketing campaigns.

Features of Hike App which May Impress You
Hike Messenger App has improved a lot, and you can find many new features have been provided. Some of the features of Hike Messenger which I really like are as follows

Improvement has been done for those who’re using 2G and low-end smartphones
According to me, this is definitely one of the reasons which has given Hike Messenger get so much success recently in India.

I am not using any of the messenger as of now. I have used whatsapp and it was nice. Hike messengers are definitely good and there have been many adverts circulating in all the media.
The advert revolved around showcasing hike as a teen thing and so does many might be gong for it.
The impressive feature is definitely the usage of the application on the 2G data, as me myself use 2G data most of the times.
Cheers to Hike. Anyway, I found this article on Kingged.
