Hike does a Snapchat; Launches Ephemeral Stories

Stories are ephemeral and vanish 48 hours after being posted.

Hike has launched Stories.

Stories is a new way for people on Hike to share their lives and real moments with their friends through photos (that you can post immediately starting today) and videos (that also you will be able to post in the next few weeks). Stories are ephemeral and vanish 48 hours after being posted, quite like real life where everyday moments are experienced, and are not etched in history forever. A user who posts a story can see how many people and who all viewed that particular story.

In addition to that, it announced “Live filters”, a brand new feature that uses Hike’s new camera to automatically detect and recognize a user’s face using Machine Learning and allows people to very easily decorate their faces in photos.


Hike has 12 Live filters available at launch, ranging from a cool Black and White Sunglasses, to a Turban and a Moustache and many more.

Sounds exciting?

  1. While I appreciate Hike for creating their own space, I am not a big fan of how they copy/paste from others.

    When will Hike start building Hike?
