    I've been using Hike and it was working fine in sri lanka. I reset the account and trying to register again. It's giving error " Some error has occurred. Please try again after sometime." I waited for one hour, two hours, three hours still I am getting same error. I uninstalled and re-installed Hike but getting same error. Can someone please help?

    Lots of problems have come up. If I try to use it's camera, app shuts down. Same if I try to select a photo from the Gallery, from within the chat. Have to go to Gallery and share it into Hike. Now unable to tag & reply to a msg in the chat. It's a nice app, but pls remove these annoying problems. Make it work normally.

  3. Ayanava De-avatar

    Even though the app provides a fun way of chatting using a great collection of stickers the app itself hangs a lot. Even if I have a proper Internet connection messages do not get sent or received as fast as it is supposed to. Nudging makes it even slower. The info screen for someone takes ages to load, pictures don't scroll easily. Overall performance is poor. The 2 stars are solely because of the stickers and not for the app itself. I am using the most recent release just fyi.

  4. Kishan Panchal-avatar

    I started using this app 6 years back. It was working amazingly. But I am facing issues since last 1 month. The messages dont get deliver to recipient even the internet service are working well. It shows "Send Free SMS. the recipient is offline". Even the app is up to date. This is very irritating. If this continues then I am back to WhatsApp. Also cannot find Hike on playstore through search bar. Please resolve at earliest.

  5. Rathorr RR-avatar

    Hello Development Team , Unable to login or access hike. I am using my alternate number for hike which is in a different mobile although I receive the code on that number but there is no use of it since the primary phone on which hike is installed keeps on rotating post putting my alternate number and does not move to next step to verify the number. Not sure what to be done to fix this

  6. Safvan Rex-avatar

    It was working nicely. But now it's too delay and takes time to deliver the msg. And I can't send my chat to email. It's always hang when I trying to search my old msgs. Please do needful

    I have been using this app for about 4 years.It is one of my favourite apps.But I dont know for the past 5 days I didnt get my explore bar.Please respond to my problem.I chevked my settings .I am having the latest version only.The app 's name is Hike news and content.But the truth is It does not provide you news and contents??? It is their responsibility to provide a proper solution for this.

  17. Divya Dabal-avatar

    Messages don't received and sent inspite of full network connection it's working too slow please fix the bug Network connection itna Accha hone k bawajood bhi itna late receive hora h msg hike is all good but this problem is occurring max all the time creating problems

  18. fiby cj-avatar

    My timeline is set for only one person. But yesterday onwards from some unknown can see my timeline updates. How it is possible. I really trusted this Hike app but. Now am really sad. Please sir its urgent. Some of them are hacked my account. Because unknown nos are seeing my timeline. But its setted to see one person

  19. Aditya Pandia-avatar

    Everything was fine until for some reason the developers introduced the Explore chat feature. It stuffs my feed with notifications i could care less about. If you provide a feature, sometimes it's better to also provide an option to block it. However, there isn't such an option with Explore. All I'm asking for is an option to somehow disable the Explore feature. Otherwise this app deserves better grading.

  20. Amith Raj-avatar

    A big problem with the hidden chat software. It's so easy to surpass by following a simple procedure. If the person who's chat is hidden, sends you a link and you open it, then lock your phone, reopen it after a while and click the back button, it goes back to the chat, unhidden. The problem here is, I'm locking the phone. So when I click the back button, it's not supposed to go directly into the chat. If I hadn't locked my phone and clicked the back button, it's a different story. Please check this and send an update. Not good at all...

  21. Keesha Siri-avatar

    I used Hike messenger for four years (for instant messaging, free phone to phone sms and mainly "caller" feature). In previous versions, there is an "caller" feature available that shows the calling person's name when I get a phone call (not hike call) and there is an exclusive option in hike settings to turn it on/off. Now after recent updates (version 5.14.7 and after), I couldn't find it anywhere in the settings. Reported the issue, no help. Now, no choice other than uninstalling :/

  22. rohan RATHOD-avatar

    The worst part is the app has one number one account policy. Even if you delete your account with a no and install hike with same no everything is restored back as if nothing happened. It is such a foolish idea to make it one number one account app if you can't provide that also. Highly disappointed. Was a user since last 5 years. I want to ask if a person want to change his no then how's he going to change it fearlessly? He knows if someone else get the same no and he or she installs hike with that no, all the history of the previous person is visible to this new guy.

  23. DIKSHA JANGIR-avatar

    I'm giving you guys 2 stars only because you removed the games like teen patti, solitaire, etc from hike. I would like to suggest you that please add the games feature again so that we can play them. I don't like the games in game of the day....!! Besides this I'm happy with other things. But I want you guys to add the game feature again.

  24. AR Docs-avatar

    It's a good app, that I can recommend my friends... From past 2-3 years I'm using it.... But whenever a new update arrives an old feature is removed that was greatly working and now-a-days I'm facing problem in hike i.e., I'm not able to send files... It is showing "could not upload file, check network settings" error, but I'm on WiFi.... Please check this error and give me good results... As soon as possible... - A friendly user of hike.

    When am send to photos and images through hike apps to other users, upload on time automatically reduced photo file size with less clarity. Can be possible to set limit for less than 10mb files without loose. Because many friends say to me. Very less Clarity with files also. May you rectify as soon as possible. Note : can to be provide to options for settings for files size and high clarity.

  26. A Google user-avatar

    I stopped using hike just because its complicated. Its always disturbing. I like that old version which was simple with timeline and chats. There was no such things that someone else could send friend requests. Its like a mini facebook now and no more simple hike! I have uninstalled thats why. But I used to like the old version very much. Once upon a time hike was the most used app!

  27. Umaraju S-avatar

    this app so good for few feature,but boy this app is full of bugs, i just found few like, chat theme doesn't change for my friend when i change in my chat, search messages feature doesn't work for the second time, and while you Search the messages become empty, and few messages won't be delivered or missed without our notice, there are more man, fix them folks

  28. A Google user-avatar

    I love this app. More safe but has to work it out on video and voice calling lots of drawbacks on video calling. if you are not in the app you won't know who is call or even a notification. after accepting the video call when u shorten the screen can see the other face but we don't notice ours and sometimes when call is running suddenly the video screen will disappears.

  29. ayesha khan-avatar

    I really, really love Hike but lately the app has been very glitchy. Messages don't get delivered inspite of good network. Please look into this and do whatever needs to be done?

  30. Bharat Ladhani-avatar

    I m unable to see any video in the discover part of this app and even any friend updates video it is also as same as other videos..no video gets played

  31. Sandeep Pandey-avatar

    This is really cool app. I have been using hike for almost 2 years. But, lately I found that News Stories section has gone for a toss. The stories are taking too long to load and many a time, swipe doesn't work at all. I think you people are trying to put tooo many things in one go. Make it like insta does, where we need a separate boomerang app to enable Boomerang feature. Likewise.

    I am hating this application now, every alternate day it says Hike daily is not available and that robot Natasha who would provide Hike services she just disappeared I don't know how and why, I just don't understand why is this happening I had also reported about other issues on Hike but there is no reply from your team. I hope you see my review here and reply back or atleast get the issue fixed. -Thank you

    This is a great app for texting. I'm using it for more than 3 years. But there are certain features that I liked about the pervious versions like Hike direct. I personally don't like the explore. It was nice when hike daily, news and games were separate. Now, I don't find games at all and even if the settings are changed in news, it still shows only news about the entertainment industry; no good useful news shown. That's a real disappointment. Hope certain features will be changed in future.

  34. Abid Baig-avatar

    Vediocalls not working other person cant see me,,, clicking photo through hike is not working. .. Feeling to uninstall if same repeats.. I'm a user from past 4yrs .. Fix the bugs n give us new update as its been 6months no updates for hike

  35. A Google user-avatar

    I have been using hike for the past 3 years or so. i loved it at the beginning but now it seems impossible to even use the app. My friends can't get my friend reqs and i cant see their's. My explore page doesn't work on either of my phones. It has gone downhill with the introduction of new fads with have accelerated its decline.

  36. A Google user-avatar

    old version was good. use to love this app(Indian) with daily hike news update (regional)stickers. but with new version my older deleted posts nd every profile updates are back. and there is no option to delete them again. and this is annoying. because if we upload or change something we deserve authority to delete or remove that from timeline and profile which seems quite impossible with new hike so i am deleting this app now. disappointed💔

  37. A Google user-avatar

    well this was the best msging app for me, but I'm facing some problems, like, when I'm having an audio call with someone(no matter who call, same problem persists) can't get out of the app, i mean when i have to google something while on the call it starts reconnecting until i go back to hike again, which is quite frustrating. Which has now made me use an substitute for calling. Other features like gifs, and other things are great. Please fix this, a huge lover of hike app. God Bless :)

  38. apoorva gupta-avatar

    its the good app. but there is small problems occuring while using hike first of all when the message or any notification comes it doesn't show on the screen of the phone. when i go back to hike and open it it gives the notification after opening it .. this is really annoying secondly . it must have the option of deleting the message before the receiver reads it just like as whtsap have.

  39. Rahaf Rayan-avatar

    I can't able to unsnd the messages...I wnt update bring new option delete for every one as in whtsapp...and very disappointed sometimes I can't get notifications until I open the app..please solve this as early as possible

    I am hike user from last 3 to 4 years but after some intervals repeatedly facing problem of not receiving any messages and notification untill app is not open. I registered this issue to hike support 4 to 5 times but not got any single response. I more creating problem and irritating me if this problem repeat again one more time i will uninstall hike.

  42. Rupali Chahar-avatar

    I have downloaded your new hike 6.0 but i am unable to get media from hike into my gallery. I have tried a tons of time... plz help this out . And another problem is most of time i did not get notification of messages...and when i open the chat i saw a lots of messages. And even sometimes i didn't even receives messages and when i send a message then all those messages from other person are immediately received. These are some tiny problems otherwise I just love hike so much even more.

  43. A Google user-avatar

    I have been using hike since years and never had a single problem but recently hike has disappointed me. Sometimes message does not get delivered even in high speed internet. sometimes message is received while it shows read by me to the sender. And the worst- Despite having backup all the data lost.. I am just highly disappointed.. I never want to leave hike but how can continue to ise hike like this?

  44. A Google user-avatar

    Dear team hike, I am not able to change the mobile number with which I created my account. I added an old number that I seriously don't use now. But now I want to change my mobile number. The app doesn't allow me to change my mobile number. This is very important to me to change number due to privacy issues. I request team hike to look into the matter asap and get a solution over it. I have already reported this issue in help and faq option in settings menu. Hoping a satisfactory reply. With thanks, Hrishikesh deshmukh.

  45. A Google user-avatar

    According its a number one social Media messaging app.I will give five stars but it should made a new feature i.e.swipe to message feature like WhatsApp. Another thing it Should give a small icon for no of photos sent or received at a time like WhatsApp, because if i send a 50 photos then to see recent chats i have to slide down the screen very much. This two features should be made within it.

  46. Visal Varghese-avatar

    It's not fair to say that Hike our Country's own app has not matured enough to implement the voice note playing via Phone's earpiece. Don't you guys think it's necessary for an application? Haven't you ever thought of playing or hearing voice notes when you don't have a earphone, which were sent by your friends when you are surrounded with many people or crowd? Wouldn't it be awkward to play loud? Please think about it.

  47. Preethi Gowda-avatar

    I don't understand why the logout option there, if we logout it just exit from the app.( same process if we uninstalling app )we have from the enter phono number, and setting/control and also we have to restore the data if we want backup, ideally if we logged out it should just show offline to other, but it work like we we exit from the app than logout , make that fix then I could give 5 start.

  48. Mithun sharma-avatar

    Lack of clear vision. You are just changing hike every 5-6 months. You don't even know what you want to provide to your users. That why hike is not able to capture that much popularity even after having so much good features. And according to me main issue is that you change hike UI frequently. Since the launch of FB WHATSAPP AND INSTAGRAM they have not changed their basic features they are just improving their app and you are just changing your app frequently.

  49. Kshitij Dhiman-avatar

    videos on hike stories start playing automatically. without hike being even active on the screen. that is videos starts playing while i am using other apps . first two times i didnt even know where the sound was coming from. EDIT 28/1/19 : right now the app is not misbehaving. its working as desired. rating increased from 1to 4

  50. Neerav Rana-avatar

    Worst experience in calling. If you call someone and go back to home, there is no short cut to go back to call. There is another bug if you do video call at the same time you can do voice call also and if you disconnect the video call the voice call will still be going but you won't hear anything. This is a very bad bug. Look into it.

    I am here with a complaint that hike is now not at all working properly . though our net signal is good messages are not being send and sometimes messages delivery is too much delayed . soo many times I have faced this problem . And emojis are also not updated as whatsapp . Due to these reasons I am giving just 2 stars. Fix the problem if you want me to give 5 stars

  52. apurav anand-avatar

    While messaging in video call, video call appears in one corner but with some glitch in network video call lost then how to start that again, before the update video call time used to show in notifications n we were able to restore the video call...how can we do that now? Fix this issue or we will have to remove hike

    Hi. hike Team a very old user of Hike. Probably since the time it has launched. Over the period I had to uninstall it due to some purpose. But now since I'm getting back to be APP, after being patient enough thrice for over 7 hrs just for my contacts to get synced and my open, it just oñmove ahead of that option. It just won't install the app completely and this is unacceptable. Hike Team, please help me out with this bug and help me install the app so that I become a happy user of Hike as I was previously. Thank You

    This app has a very poor backup system. We should be allowed to choose what to backup. We should be able to delete files from the existing backups. Only the last backup should be saved. When we restore from the backup all the things get recoved from all of our backups which we have created from the begining. This recovers the useless files which we don't need anymore. It become very difficult to access necessary message from the bulk messages.

    Hike is no doubt my favourite. So much better than whatsapp!! But, lately something is wrong with it. For the past 3 months i am unable to see the last seen on my friend although he hasnt hidden it from me. Moreover, i can't even see him online when we are actually chatting!! It's really bugging me. Please do something and fix this problem.

  57. pulokesh ghosh-avatar

    ofcourse I have been using it for over 2 years, and hike 5.0 has been one of the coolest apps to be ever used, just the explore part that got included is a little complicated to understand, since it is actually a medium for chatting not kind of a social media platform... Nonetheless I am a great fan of this app as so many of my stories are associated with it, afterall...

  58. Rasagna K-avatar

    initially the app was so good.... I've been using it for 3 years and i didn't face any issues but all of a sudden from the past 2 months my hike isn't working properly am not receiving any notification even when the message is sent by the other person. once i login there are messages which first popped in but then now even that notification am not receiving . it's like when i wanna check something i login n there are messages . please check this out . it is very dissappointing .

  59. Dileep Kumar-avatar

    Why is app not showing any notifications until I open the app myself. It doesn't happen to me only but to all my friends as well. Please fix it immediately

  60. Sri Ram-avatar

    I ❤️ hike more than any messaging apps, bcoz of its user interface, stickers and every bit,but I miss onething which I would like to add. It would be good, if you guys add Swipe to reply for specific texts. Please do consider this and update it in the next release. ❤️

  61. Balaji Murthy-avatar

    Whenever I start using a message pops, "Something went wrong! Retry". Even upon pressing "Retry", the app doesn't open. I am facing this problem. Please resolve.

  62. akhtar raza-avatar

    Well hike is Best messenger application No doubt but When I use for some contacts hidden mode feature and after Resenting or Removeing those contacts from hide mode the application says the Entire Conversation or Chat will automatically get Erressd or deleted... And I don't want to use hidden feature any more and never want to delete the last 10?😢 month chat.. Soo any body help.me out with this problem.

  63. MOHAN S.M-avatar

    Hi team, I hope you are keeping good. I would like to give a feedback on the new hike messenger. I would like give feedback in relation to the conversation screen (home) . I personally feel little difficult to differentiate between a group conversation and an individual chat. Some i have to scroll once or twice to find the conversation i need to open. It would be better if you provide individual screen for group chat or differentiate with any colour modifications.

    Will make it 5 only if they bring the online games back which were awesome... And! why I can't select the peoples for viewing timeline.. in that there is option who should not see...

  66. Rishika Pandey-avatar

    A complete package is what I'll call this app!! The privacy features were illecebrous, you can play offline games and there's a lot of more things that this app provides... And then there's Natasha! The best thing ever! Kudos to Kavin and team Hike coz I loved it!! 😊 –Been its user since 2014

    I have been using the app since very long time and this is the first time I feel like commenting about app mainly because of a minor advice. All the features are just fine, connectivity,call quality etc. But please add finger print unlock or face unlock for hidden chats. Saves a lot of work. Please

  68. A Google user-avatar

    i think we are not use certain feature in the app they should be removed like e-payment, bank ... even timeline is also not required.... now the app have become complex ... n user find bit difficult to get through... Id's, setting everything has to be as simple as possible....... Add no in contact refresh it n chat ..... id's are use less create n other types unwanted plz remove it

  69. A Google user-avatar

    I love hike but there is one major bug which bothers me. To view any contacts info, after clicking one their name in the chat window. It takes a lot of time to open person information window. And sometimes it also hangs during that process such that i have to restart the app. Please fix this bug

  70. uday umesh-avatar

    I was a very big fan of hike. But today, I bought a new phone and I've been trying from the past 2 hours to restore by old backup into my new phone. Everytime, I install and try to restore, it says something went wrong and then does not restore my chats at all...Fed up of trying to restore the old chats. I have tried backing up again from my old phone (probably 50 times), transferred the backup files to my new device and tried restoring from phone backup (probably 10 times) and also tried restoring from the cloud (probably 20 times). And all I get is nothing. Those chats are very important to me and I am unable to restore them into my now phone. 😭😭😭

  71. Siddhesh Zanj-avatar

    This app is very very slow. The last scene status doesn't change when the person is online sometimes and vice versa. Even if the person has left the chat it shows online. Most of the times it's very slow. Whatsapp is way better. Please fix this bug

  72. Mritunjay Kumar-avatar

    worst performance in terms of backup and restore. if you are taking backup and uninstalling your hike, please don't expect that you'll get all your chat back. it's better to use WhatsApp Messenger only. At least they give gou the surity, you won't lose you information.(via GoogleDrive) Dear Team Hike, stop treating us like a kid. please Go and check you mailbox you will get all the mail communication ( more than 2)Which is still unanswered from your end. rgds Mritunjay

    No doubt Hike is a great app. Competing with whatsapp is a big deal. But with all the new functions, all the facebook like timelines and all that, it has lost its simplicity. I would absolutely love this app when it launches the web app...like whatsapp, wechat and facebook messenger where I can use this on phone and PC at the same time.

  74. ananda varman-avatar

    chat theme got moved while typing...please get back it normal.. emojis are slightly bigger when it is send alone. But too small if it is send along with a text, please fix back as before it is. I also don't get notification unless i get into the app, i hate this problem. Consider my request and clear these problems as soon as possible...by a regular hike user...

    Is there a possiblity to switch hike from one device to other device, having same chats and all? I have tried this using phone backup. I have backedup my hike account, copied to SD card and inserted SD card on the other phone, then pasted my backup to new phone device. My new phone is able to recognize my hike account but it failed to restore chats. Its popping up, 'Something went wrong while restoring chats' . Could you please explain why is it happening and how to restore chats in New phone?

  77. Aditya Jain-avatar

    Too many bugs... Many times messages are not notified neither are displayed on the home of app where all chat heads appear;our last sent message appears. When you open the chat head you come to know that there was some message from the party. Also may abrupt unexpected app crash.

  78. Ojas Joshi-avatar

    Too many notifications from this app... And sometimes it happens like, the hike msg rings and we think that it is the msg from somebody which is expected.... But it is a notification many a times... So plz fix it... I don't think these many notifications are really needed... We check hike 100s of times a day... So plz take a action on it..

  79. Videh Nandini-avatar

    It is a really great app and I love everything about it. And I am really glad you did not change the emojis. The only issue is that it keeps stopping and whenever someone sends a message then I do not get the notification even though the notification setting is on. Otherwise it's a really nice app.

  80. Shavi Suri-avatar

    Everything is working fine now. Now we got Hike cloud , i asked about it. Only one thing More i need, then i will complete my rating to five stars. Telegram saves every message to cloud instantly without any backup thing.It's really great. we can open account with direct uninstall and without doing backup. It's really really great.Please see this feature. If u will implement it, Hike will be best and advanced app ever. believe me. and no doubt,Hike always better than Whatsapp with all cool stuff

  81. B.g. 9897-avatar

    Problem with messages notification it only notify when i open my app. Give some solution.

  82. Shyam R-avatar

    i could not restore any of my messages. i tried restoring from cloud,it downloaded all media files.And i manually copy pasted my old backup folder and resetting my account.although it shows restoring from device storage it is not restoring a single chat.very dissapointing. I will change my rating if i get a solution for my chat restoring problem.

  83. Mohan K Reddy-avatar

    Why can't I change the mobile number for my hike account. Whatsapp and telegram are allowing to change numbers 'n' number of times. Why can't you. I don't understand. If that's taken care of I'll give 5 stars happily. 'Explore' is not at all opening. Always showing 'upgrading-try again later' this upgrading is irritating.

  84. Armaan-avatar

    Till last month, I was really happy with Hike. I think it can become the best messenger and News App. But since a couple of days, the explore section has become worst. Useless stories which don’t open. Sometimes stories like who kissed whom pop-up. I don’t want to see vulgar content. Please correct that.

    There is a bug: if hike is open and recieve a phone call or make a phone call or play the game during that time(after hangup the call or after closing the game)..all video feeds play(start) at a time automatically even if hike is minimized or videos are mute..videos are not stopping until hike is directly closed from the taskbar

  86. Doll Gurl-avatar

    its a great app...i just love it...but i changed my number..and i dont want to lose my old chat history .. please help me... add option "change your phone number" as soon as possible.. if i lose my chats, i'll never use your app .. never ever.. 😑 so please hurry up.. my chats are soooo precious to me

    recently from few days I noticed that i was getting notification of news but couldn't able to open and read, but today i have found that explore option has been removed. May I know will I be getting news feed still or is there any alternative of it in recent version or update. If you have completly remove the news feed please do not take such decision. We like that feature of Hike and because of that feature it makes hike different from other messenger app. So cud u pls provide news feed back.

  88. A Google user-avatar

    I never find enough words to say how lovely hike is! Has bunch of amazing features, among which the news feed and daily inspirational quotes are some of my faves..💟 the timeline is also back 😊 Only the 'explore' sometimes keeps showing "upgrading" & takes time when tried to open, hope the team fixes this quickly..Oh and I loved the much earlier fonts of hike daily quotes much more...😅😊 Lots of love though, keep getting better..🌟💓

  89. Shikhar Kumar-avatar

    This is meant for the hike team and developers. I am not able to swipe news in the news section and not able to view the other pages. This has been the problem since the last update. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars because the app deserves it, please solve the problem and I would give it 5/5.

    Not safe.. In end to end encryption only sender and reciver can read,access to data, but in 128bit,2048 company server can read and save our data, messages. We can take screen screenshots of messages, no selfdistructive messages (timing), we can forward vulnerable data(images,photos,message). It must not autobackup, it must not save any data in server, it must give end to end encription, it must prevent forward option,screen shot in hide chat, it must enable self distructive messages and timing.

    Hey hike team i have a request to you kindly make hike user friendly means just keep it a massenger only masseging features are quite good such as hide options but it hangs again and again sometime it's so hard to chat on it. Please work on it Do not add extra money transfer type features if u are adding these features then make it more stable. Thank you

  93. Omi-avatar

    I had given 1 star, only to grab the attention of hike team.. can you introduce a feature like.. you will able to see the person's mood depending on the emojis used by that person during the last 24 hrs. Classify all emoji into Happy, Sad, neutral like something and depending on these emojies used, show that they the person is happy, sad,etc. Hope, Hike team will bring such update in it's next version.

  94. Sushil Malla-avatar

    Used to be the best. But nowadays video lags too much. Notification is slow. Message delivery slow. It was best when it was simple. It would be great if you improve the quality parallel to your new features.

    this app is much better to Whatsapp .... it has much more option than whatsapp say the discover, bill spliting, groups limit etc... but the only problem is people dont want to use Hike... i dont know maybe ... they see whatsapp m7ch simplar than hike... as it includes adding the friend and much more.... but over all this app a great .... so i suggest you to just improve the no. of users..... get some idea ... let your works use their brain .... find something intresting so that people use hike instead of that damn Whatsapp .... hope you listen it and work on it too .... Thank you

    Guys, pls work on personalising notifications. Like the on WhatsApp. I'm not asking you to copy it, but the feature can be developed in a more pronounced way. Where each of the contacts can be personalised with an individual notification. That would be way better. It's because there are a lot of notifications popping up while using the app, like news, scores, jokes and so on. Those are less prioritised when you're in a meeting and someone who actually wants to convey a message. Hope you can rectify this issue. Thanks.
