Hello friends, today I’m going to tell you how to download and install hike messenger on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows XP. Hike Messenger was initially developed for android but by doing some tweaks on our Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC we can easily install hike messenger on computer.
Hike messenger is India’s first ever cross-platform instant messaging service that uses Internet for communication. In addition to text messaging, users can send each other stickers, emoticons, images, videos, audios, files (.doc, .pdf etc), voice messages and contacts. Another amazing feature of Hike chat messenger is that it allows you to share your location with your contacts.
Hike messenger is available for Android, iOS, Windows, Blackberry and Symbian Operating systems.
What we actually going to do is that we will create a virtual android environment within our Windows computer by using some software and then we will download and install the hike chat messenger on laptop or pc.
You might think that why we’re creating android virtual environment and not iOS or Blackberry.
This is because Android is the most used OS for smartphones around the world and many free and paid software are available on the Internet that makes our task easy in making a virtual android environment.
Also, there is no such ready-made script or software available for other operating systems like iOS, Blackberry OS, Symbian etc on the Internet. If you want to create a virtual iOS or virtual blackberry environment on your computer, then you need to write some scripts yourself which is a much harder job.
So, to make your work easy we’re going to use some free software that could easily be found online to help you download and install hike chat messenger on your Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 or Mac
