The Viber messaging app has been updated with a Public Chats feature that lets users discover, share and interact with conversations, communities and content.
Public Chats are live discussions between celebrities and personalities that Viber users can follow. Anyone on Viber can follow as many of these chats as they like on their mobile device. Conversations are multi-media and include text, photos, audio, video, stickers, web links, etc. Users can invite friends to follow the Public Chats that interest them, and can share content.
Public Chats launches with various global celebrities, personalities and brands, including celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, YouTube sensation Tyler Oakley, singer-songwriter Pixie Lott, international DJ Paul van Dyk, digital fashion innovators Next Model Management, European football channel COPA90 and more.
With Viber, everyone in the world can connect. Freely. More than 400 million Viber users text, call, and send photo and video messages worldwide over WiFi or 3G – for free. Viber Out can be used to make calls to non-Viber landlines and mobile numbers at low rates. Viber is available for many smartphones and platforms. On Viber, your phone number is your ID. The app syncs with your mobile contact list, automatically detecting which of your contacts have Viber.
