Hike Messenger app for Windows Phone devices just got updated to v188.8.131.52 in the Windows Phone Store. The new update fixes the group messaging issue. Find the story provided by the developer on how they fixed this bug below.
A very strange thing happened to us the other day. We suddenly started receiving notifications on the notification bar from this weird alphanumeric chat.
Initially we thought someone added us to a random group. We opened hike and did what anyone would normally do… simply leave the group!
It was at this point that things we never imagined starting happening. We somehow weren’t able to leave this group, nor able to type anything! Another strange phenomena was that this group chat never appeared on our main chat screen list!
We immediately cancelled our flights, zoomed back to the office, gathered all our troops in the war room with a single mission to figure out why this is happening!
After an intensive round of interrogation with some of our imprisoned bugs, we came to know about the existence of “The Grouper Bug”.
We sent out our elite special forces, “The Eliminators”, to do what they do best… Eliminate bugs!
We are very happy to inform you that we have officially kicked “The Grouper Bug” out of all group chats so to the few of you experienced this issue, be rest assured it wouldn’t happen again.
Oh and in the process of finding the Grouper Bug, The Eliminators zapped a few more bugs that will help keep things smoother and faster.
