Hike adds new features to groups

New Delhi, Dec 14 : Indian instant messaging platform Hike on Thursday added new social features for groups that are built inside the application.

"Our new features will make sharing much easier within the group and raise the fun and productivity quotient.

We believe that this could be a key driver for groups to come together," Vishwanath Ramarao, CTO, Hike Messenger, said in a statement.

One such feature is "vote" that will let the user create a poll within the group chat with a single tap.

The "bill split" feature allows the users to share bills with their friends on the group via Hike Wallet.

At present, Hike -- a joint venture between Bharti Enterprises and SoftBank Corp -- is handling over 10 billion messages and three billion stickers per month.
