Famous messaging app Viber is becoming more popular each day. In fact, the messaging app has reached no less than 100 million active users.
Naturally, many other people have signed into Viber. So, according to the company, over 360 million users have registered to Viber, so far. Having these facts under consideration, it seems that the CEO of Viber plans on making some important changes.
The CEO of Viber, Talmon Marco claimed that “as usage increases, our priority remains the same- introducing features, adding more platforms, and improving Viber with every new version.” Moreover, Viber will soon bring an important update. Apparently, the messaging up will also be available on desktop version, very soon.
A whole new collection of stickers might be available for users, as well. Actually, nowadays stickers are an important source of revenue for individuals who are fans of such services. Many stickers are currently available for free, but there is a collection of such stickers which can be purchased, as well. In fact, this is an important source of revenue for Viber, as well as for many other messaging aps or similar services.
While Whatsapp was purchased by Facebook for the impressive sum of $19 billion, Viber was bought by Rakuten, but for a much lower sum of money, $900 million. With the new changes that Viber hopes to bring soon, this messaging app is willing to stand out in front of the competition, including Whatsapp.
So, the new desktop version promises to be great and naturally this can mean an important boost for Viber when it comes to an increase in the number of its users. The CEO of Viber claimed that everyone is really excited to try this new update. Naturally, many users will find it to be extremely exciting, too.
