Viber has announced the release of Viber 4.1 for Android and iPhone which includes the full global launch of a new feature, Viber Out that allows users to make low-cost calls to any mobile or landline phone number.
Viber had previously enabled Viber Out for users in the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan to help users contact friends and loved ones. To provide free calls from the Philippines, Viber partnered with telcos across the world. Now with the official worldwide launch, Viber Out will enable all Viber users to call anyone worldwide at low rates on Android, iPhone and Desktop, coming to Windows Phone in the future.
Talmon Marco, CEO, Viber, said, “Viber Out gives our millions of users a new way to use Viber and ensures that they can reach any contact at any time. We will continue to improve Viber Out, keeping our users connected at the most affordable rates possible.”
As part of this release, Viber added new stickers and will continue to add more content. Viber also released a new promotional video highlighting one of its signature characters – Violet.
