If we make a list of popular applications among Indian users, then Hike is surely going to find its place and that too on a top position. Considering its popularity, I thought that a lot of people will be looking to download Hike Messenger for PC and use it online without paying anything.
The same guide is being shared over here, along with every detail you should know. I am aware of the fact that Hike Messenger (Android | iOS | Windows Phone) isn’t available officially for the PC platform. But, still there is a way through which you can deal with this installation process and get over with it without falling into the trap of any hack.
All you have to do is to go through the parts I have divided this guide along, one by one and see yourself how the official version of Hike gets installed on your computer.
Before starting, let me share few facts. This method is going to work for Windows and Mac platforms only. I don’t see if Linux users will be interested in such things because they are already busy in developing their own applications.

Hike Messenger Review
Table of Contents
Using Hike for our messaging needs help us in two ways. First, it offers a very elegant-looking interface to start and continue our daily life conversations. And second, it helps us earn money through various campaigns running inside.
The server which backs up the service of this application runs all the time and till date, it never went down. So, you are always having the application ready at your service. Also, it works at a faster speed which further increase the experience.
The Hike messenger allows users to share text, images, videos, voice notes, etc., with any person who is also using the application on any compatible device. If you have credits available then you can also send messages to phone numbers directly.
The UI throughout is elegant, simple, and good enough to get addicted. The cool animations available along with the addictive emoticons is another reason why you will feel addicted. The sticker store is really big and always growing with fresh arrivals. The special stickers which convey common language words is another candy feature.
Getting started is very simple, thanks to its rule of creating the user profile using the phone number. You don’t even need to add your friends, as its automatic scanner will scan all your contacts and will automatically find the one who are already using Hike.

Once you are done adding and verifying your phone number, and completing the profile, you can simply tap on a friend’s profile and being the conversations for free. To gain free recharge, you have to send invites to non-hike users and if they join the application with your link, you will gain free recharge amount.
It also got a little theme engine, allowing you to select themes for complete application or for a special contact. The theme collection is large enough and also looks elegant, not that creepy. The mode of private messaging is also useful in case, you wish to keep your personal matters, private and protected with a dedicated password.
In short, Hike is way better than any other and if you love a lot of animations, cool new features and rely on stickers too much, then Hike will be the one you will stay addicted for long.
The only case in which you can skip this part without initialising any chance of finding any issues during the main process is when you own a system of 2015 standards. I mean, it should have support for full HD content, 4+GB RAM and mid-range processor. Otherwise, check on with following requirements.
- The system (both desktop and laptop) should have at least 4GB RAM. The process will work in 2GB also but don’t expect the performance to be buttery smooth in that case.
- There should be enough free storage in C Drive (Root folder in case of Mac) to store files and folders of this application. In every case, you should be keeping at least 10GB free storage, for better performance.
- The operating system version in case of Windows should be Windows XP (Service Pack 3) or newer while in case of Mac, the system itself should be maximum 2 years old.
- The last requirement is here and it covers the graphic requirement. It should be having support for playing HD content. For that, it should have HD standard of the graphic driver (also make sure it is updated to latest version) and the display monitor should have HD resolution.
Once you are sure that the system you own is perfectly compatible with these special requirements, then you are ready to move ahead with confidence. If your system is just close to this configuration, then you can give it a try and see if it works.

If you are thinking that its too much to ask for, then you should be aware of the fact that every software and application has its own requirements. So, there is nothing new here.
Process to Download Hike for PC
This is the part where you will grab the instructions to follow to install Hike on computer or laptop, whichever PC you own. Start going through below mention instructions as it is.
Step 1 – First things first, you need to download and install an Android emulator software. I always recommend BlueStacks app player because no other of its alternative is near to the experience it delivers. You can follow this special part of my blog, select the installation guide according to the platform, and follow installation instructions I have added there. Also, if you already know how to install a software, then download it and begin on your own.
Step 2 – Start the software as you see it’s ready to run and once you see its homepage running, then you need to click on ‘Search’ tool. It is located at the top left corner.
Step 3 – Enter ‘Hike Messenger’ as a search term and click on the Play store link in the results. Before you can proceed, you will be asked to login with a Google account in order to setup sync feature here. You don’t have any choice here.
Step 4 – After getting done with the login part, the search result will open among Play store. Select the official app again and finally click on ‘Install’ option which you can see on Hike’s listing.
Wait for a minute or maximum two and you will get a notification from BlueStacks that Hike messenger is installed successfully. Every time you wish to run this app, you have to start BlueStacks app player first and then run the Hike from either All Apps section or use the search tool again to find it.
I believe that process was simple enough for you to remember it in future. If not, then this guide will always be available here. You can also share it over your social profiles so that all your friends can join you within Hike.

Benefits of using Hike Messenger on PC/Laptop
The first and very personal benefit is that using Hike Messenger on computer will help us seeing everything in crystal clear state. Because of bigger display and that too with HD resolution. Trust me, watching those cool animations and emoticons is going to be too much fun.
While working on our laptop or desktop system, we have to pick our phone again and again in order to continue the conversation. But, now since we have Hike installed on our PC itself, so we no longer need to worry about picking the phone again.
Because of having keyboard and mouse (or trackpad/touchpad) attached to the system, navigating in the app and typing the conversation will be faster than what it can be on a smartphone. These are certain benefits I personally experienced while using Hike Messenger on PC. Don’t forget to share yours in the discussion section.
I hope you don’t need to know the verdict here. As you did experience everything in the best possible state. So, start running Hike Messenger and see how it helps to ignite the messaging experience in a better way. Sayonara!
