Free text messaging and phone calls has now reached millions of additional users as Viber officially launches today its app version for Android.
Viber was originally released for iPhone seven months ago, garnering an impressive 20 million registered users, 12 million of which are active users using the free VoIP feature for 11 million minutes every day, averaging 6 minutes per call. The beta version for Android has been tested by more than 50,000 users since May, in preparation for its official release. With Viber now available for both iPhone and Android, users will definitely enjoy its features with even more contacts.
The Android version of Viber allows the same high-quality calls plus several exclusive features, including a full call screen for calls, pop-up notifications for text messaging, phone-integrated call and text logs, and default Viber dialers for all phone calls.
“We have been looking forward to launching our Android app, especially after having received a staggering number of requests from Android users asking us to bring Viber to the Android market,” says Viber CEO Talmon Marco. “Our latest user numbers are the best indicator of how much our users love to talk and send messages for free with Viber.”
Viber has earned the thumbs-up of many with its free but no ads services and no additional purchases required. It also behaves like your phone — no need to add friends up unlike in instant messaging services. It also delivers high sound quality for VoIP calls, even better than your regular phone calls.
