Get v Public Chats with the Latest Update


As of today, Viber is among the top providers of free voice and video calling services, as well as free instant messaging services across the globe.

Having been introduced towards the end of 2010, Viber has been around for a period of around 4 years and during this short period of operation, this instant messenger has managed to overturn how things work with respect to communication in the smartphone world.

Latest Viber Update is Available for All Supported Operating Systems

Perhaps it can be argued that Viber entered the market at the right time. This is due to the fact that Viber’s continued rise is hand in hand with that of the Android world. When Viber first came into the  market, it started as an iPhone app. However, as time went by, the need to diversify into other markets grew and as it stands, Viber can now be used on devices running on Mac OS, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Series 40, Bada and Symbian.

Furthermore, Viber took full advantage of the PC world in full swing and it wasted no time in following its mobile version with a desktop version, a development that saw most people liken it to Skype, which is by no doubt the market leader, when it comes to providing VoIP services.

The Good Old Days

Updates are meant to be new features and offers that provide users with the chance of exploring new things when using these applications. However, the latest update of Viber is something different and very interesting. This update takes users back in time and re-enters the VoIP industry with long gone chat rooms and public chats.

These two features were very popular in the past and you could always see them on Yahoo Messenger, AOL chat, IRC and on Windows Live (MSN) messenger. There lived a golden age when users could connect to random people on the web. This was one great way of killing boredom as well as making new friends and meeting new people.

In the latest update of Viber, you will find this concept of public chats where Viber users can initiate chats with other users of Viber all over the world, regardless of whether they are already friends on Viber or not.

Good News for Marketers

This is the best ever news for marketers who have been deeply immersed into using Viber for a variety of their business dealings and or calls. This is because this application’s new update comes as a great tool for marketing, since users can sell their products in the name of chatting. This feature is exciting and many people across the globe have eagerly been waiting for its release and now that it’s here, well, it is time to make great use of it.

What are you waiting for? If you haven’t yet updated to the latest version of Viber, you can do it now by simply visiting the official app store for your specific device. You can also get the latest version of Viber from the official Viber website.
