Popular voice and messaging app Viber which was recently acquired by Japanese internet giant Rakuten announced today that it has now more than 100 million active users. Refurbished shortly after the $900 million acquisition, the Cyprus-based company said it has now over 300 million users in 193 countries.
Viber also announced the milestone simultaneously with the release of a new version of Viber Desktop. New product comes with improved video quality and performance, a different look and new features including popular emoticons docked to the side of the app. Spanish and Portuguese are also added to the existing user languages English and Japanese.
Against the strong global rivals like WhatsApp and Line, the company keeps investing in global expansion via “introducing features, adding more platforms, and improving Viber with every new version” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber.
Viber is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Blackberry 10, Windows, Windows 8, Mac, Linux, Symbian, Nokia S40 and Bada devices over 3G/4G or WiFi connections.
