    Question "Do you hear me" and "I hear you"


    Please let me know if my understanding/observation is correct or not.

    "Do you hear me?" is used when someone is asking if the
    other person heard him/her.

    The other person may answer -
    "Yes, I hear you"

    But sometimes, when one person is narrating some incident
    from his life, or his view, the other person may say
    something like this - "I hear ya (buddy)".
    In this case, does it mean he is saying something like
    "I know" or "I understand" ?
    Can it also mean "I agree"?
