App Round-up: Hike gets voice-calls, Reverie launches Swalekh keyboard & CoPilot GPS adds offline India maps

Hike gets voice-calls on Android

Hike Messenger has added voice-calling support in its Android version. In a recently released app update, the messenger quietly added this functionality. The Hike users can now call their contacts free of cost, but voice-calling is only limited to Android right now, so you won’t be able call users on other platforms.

To use the feature, open ‘Menu’ in the conversation window and tap ‘Call’.

Originally introduced in December 2012, Hike Messenger has over 35 million users.
