2015 has begun with a bang. After our first ever acquisition of Zip Phone. a free calling app earlier this January; we’re excited to roll out free hike calls!

Today we’re introducing hike calls to over 90% of our user base starting with Android. Here’s what we’ve packed in:

  • Free hike to hike calls over 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi
  • Call friends in 200+ countries
  • Optimized for low bandwidth networks

While building free hike calls, we kept two things in mind. Firstly, India is a very cost sensitive market and as a result we’ve ensured that our service is extremely efficient on data. It means our users can pack in many more minutes per MB when calling on hike. Secondly, we’ve made hike’s free calling service available globally in over 200+ countries. Hikers from India can now speak with their loved ones in India and across the world for free.

We’re still in beta which means we’re just getting started. Expect us to move quickly and launch a number of improvements over the next few months including an iOS and Windows Phone version by the end of this quarter.
