Hardly five years ago, Viber was born as an iOS-based free voice calling app.
Competition for the app suddenly started increasing and the developers of the app did not hesitate in releasing versions for other platforms; a move that was very effective in increasing the customer-base of the application.
Viber was recently bought by a Japanese tech giant known as Rakuten and this hasn’t had any negative effect on the app as it keeps recording more and more sign ups. Having only had around 5 million users in 2011, this app now boasts a massive user base of more than 450 million people across the globe. The journey towards success hasn’t been the easiest for Viber, thanks to the dozens of competitors out there, who offer similar services as this app.
Viber can be installed on multiple devices, operating systems and it’s also a cross-platform app.
Viber 5.0 Comes with Enhanced Features
As earlier noted, the path to success has not been the easiest for Viber. Competition means you ought to offer the best in order to be the best and as such; Viber has released the latest version of Viber 5.0, which comes with many improved features for the latest version of iOS 8.1.2.
Users of Viber can now enjoy enhanced voice clarity when making voice calls. This change has also been effected on the quality of pictures where users of version 5.0 of Viber will enjoy video calls of the highest quality and all this is free.
Note that the calls will only be free if the person you are calling is also connected to Viber. However, the location of your friend or family is not an issue, as long as they have a stable internet connection; the communication process will be flawless. The only charges you incur for using Viber on your iOS 8.1.2 device are for your data plan. Strong connections mean quality voice and video calls.
