The idea for Viber came about when founder Talmon Marco was living in New York and dating a girl in Hong Kong (now his wife!). He was looking for the best and most engaging way to keep in touch by mobile phone, and at the time there was nothing that served this purpose. And so, in 2010 Viber was born!Download Media Kit

There’s no boring registration process – your phone number’s your Viber ID and the app integrates seamlessly with your address book. All you need is 3G or WiFi and friends who also have Viber. The mobile app also syncs instantly with desktop computers and tablets, so you can continue your conversation wherever suits you best at any particular moment. Viber has more than 900 million unique users in 193 countries.
Messages and More
With Viber, texting doesn’t have to be boring. You can brighten up someone’s day with photos and video, or simply send a sticker to say how you feel. There are thousands of fun designs to choose from, so no matter who you’re talking to or what you’ve done, a sticker says it all! You can send one-to-one messages or start a group chat with up to 199 other people, so it’s a great way to stay in touch with family, plan events and activities, or just share a joke with friends. You can also customize your pictures and messages with doodles. If you’re meeting friends in a new place Viber let’s you drop a pin to share your location. You can even send an instant voice message by clicking the ‘Hold & Talk’ button.
Phone & Video Calls
Viber lets you make HD phone and video calls to friends and family all over the world with much better sound quality than a regular phone call. And if you’re calling another Viber user, it’s completely free. If you need to contact someone who doesn’t have Viber, you can make low-cost calls to landlines or mobile phones anywhere in the world using Viber Out credits.
