With Viber, you can make free calls and send free text messages, video, photo, and audio messages to other Viber users, on any device, in any country.
Calling and sending free text messages, is now possible since in December 2010, when the application Viber emerged. It has 300 million users by now, just as many as WhatsApp. Viber lets you call free in your own country but also to and even from abroad!
Of course, you cannot reach your other contacts who possess Viber, but the application shows you who is online, as well as the offline contacts and their last login date. Furthermore, Viber automatically retrieves your contacts list, and detects those, who also have the application. In addition to text messaging, users can exchange video, photos and audio media messages.
The application is very practical and it is free, therefore it did generate any income until now, in spite of its popularity. Thus, a Freemium system is currently being developed which will have no impact on the free application, and will offer only a little more for Premium membership to instant messaging. It is also planned to evolve Viber into a platform for downloading.
The project mentioned above reflects the ambition of the Viber team. To counter its main competitor, WhatsApp , which is available only on mobile phones, Viber has developed a PC, Mac and Linux software, with similar conditions to those of the mobile application, just designed for computer use. It is available for Windows's Phone, Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Nokia S40, Bada, Symbian, Windows, Mac.
As Viber is a competitor of Skype - 500 million users -, it seeks to develop on multiple devices, which are interconnected. So, for example, an action on mobile will affect the computer software. This is not the last time we hear of Viber, its continuous ascension cannot seem to stop... Viber has recently merged with Rakuten, a Japanese internet giant.
