New Delhi, Apr 17 : Hike, India’s homegrown tech and internet startup on Wednesday announced the launch of Hike Sticker Chat, a new and personalised way for young Indians to express themselves. Targeted towards the new age Indian internet user, Hike Sticker Chat uses machine learning to bring stickers front and center with powerful sticker suggestions.

“We're really excited to launch Hike Sticker Chat, a new and an incredibly personalised way for young Indians to express themselves with their close friends. Stickers are at the center of Hike Sticker Chat and are built with Machine Learning at its core. The app seamlessly tailors itself around each user’s tastes to make communication really simple and expressive by bringing you the right sticker at the right time” said Hike founder and CEO Kavin Bharti Mittal.
