Viber, one of the world’s leading messaging application, has announced new and innovative Chat Extensions, giving one billion registered users new fascinating ways to easily communicate and manage their conversations.
In December 2016, Viber first introduced the Chat Extensions service, through which users have access to third-party content and services, directly through the windows of their conversations. So users enjoy a very enjoyable and uninterrupted chat experience as they can receive and share content that’s important to them -like their favorite YouTube videos, Spotify songs, Yelp food spots, GIF files from Tenor and GIPHY, and more- without ever leaving the chat.
New Chat Extensions:
Viber Shouts is a new, fun way in which users can share messages with colorful backgrounds that want to stand out from the rest. Already more than 20 drafting options are available for “bubbles” of messages, while in the future the collection will be further enriched.
Favorites is a new useful chat extension for storing all your favorite and important YouTube GIFs, links and videos in one place. Users can save to Favorites any GIF, link, or YouTube video they have received within Viber so they can easily access this content in the future and share it instantly in their next conversations at the touch of a button.
Location is a new feature with which users can instantly share their location within a conversation, as well as more relevant information about nearby places. The new location message includes the “Open” button of that location, allowing users to choose the desired browser. Because of the privacy protection of users, this service only works if the user has allowed Viber to access his location. The user’s location is requested only when he clicks on the “Location” chat extension to share it with their friends.
Since its launch, Viber has been working with more than 20 content and service providers worldwide and locally by incorporating various extensions such as GIPHY and Tenor for GIF, YouTube for online video, Spotify for music and more for news, entertainment, sports and food. Last year, Viber users used the various conversation extensions more than 4.5 billion times, making it one of the most popular application services in the app.
Viber Shouts, Favorites, and Location extensions will be available worldwide in the Viber version for iPhone and Android.
“Viber is constantly striving to enrich the communication experience for all users passionately using the application around the world. The three new and innovative conversational extensions are the result of our strategic effort to keep Viber the most powerful and expressive communication tool, offering exciting ways to chat in different styles. We are excited and confident that these chat extensions, along with our ongoing commitment to privacy, will continue to make the use of Viber a unique and excellent experience for everyone”,
said Djamel Agaoua, CEO of Viber.
