Hike Group chat features

Additionally, Hike also lets its users create huge groups with up to 1000 members.
It is a great feature for school and college friends to decide anything with the whole group’s consent. Hike users can easily create a poll within the group chat with the Vote microapp making it easier to express opinions and preferences with just a simple tap.
Checklists, Events with Reminders
Sometimes there are so many things to do for everyone so you can create a Checklist to make sure nothing is missed out, in any event, your group is organizing. Users can also set the reminders for events and the inbuilt calendar exclusive to your group chat will remind you to get ready.
Another important feature is the ‘Bill Split’ that allows the group members to share their bills with friends. So, if someone in the group book those movie tickets or reserve tables for dinner and later split the bill within the group. Just calculate everyone’s share and receive money via Hike Wallet.
Additionally, there is this fun feature for playing Teen Patti within the Group. Group members can play right from the group chat from anywhere with other group members.
On the launch of these new social features, Vishwanath Ramarao, CTO, Hike Messenger, said,
