The News Minute | January 29, 2015 | 8:10 am IST Home-grown chat application firm Hike Messenger has rolled out free voice-calling Hike Calls, a company statement said on Wednesday. The introduction of this feature will allow its users to call each other for free, over 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi and across the globe in over 200 countries. The introduction of such calls has come within a month of its first acquisition of a free calling app - Zip Phone. "While building free hike calls, we kept two things in mind. Firstly, India is a very cost-sensitive market and as a result we√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘve ensured that our service is extremely efficient on data. It means our users can pack in more minutes per MB when calling on hike,√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě Kavin Bharti Mittal, founder and chief executive officer, Hike Messenger said. √Ę‚ā¨ŇďSecondly, we√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘve made Hike√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs free calling service available globally in over 200 countries,√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě he added. The free Hike calling feature has been launched in beta on Android, which contributes to over 90 percent of Hike√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs user base. The iOS and Windows versions are slated for release by the end of this quarter. Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
