Viber's New Features Allow Users To Send Money, Restore Messages
Viber has been updated with numerous new features including the ability to send and receive animated GIFs, backup and restore messages using iCloud, send money from the United States and more.
Ubergizmo reports that users can now send money to each other via a message on Viber. The announced update allows sending money from the U.S. to more than 200 different countries. The money transfer is powered by Western Union. Cash can be sent directly to a bank account in nearly 50 countries or for pickup from a Western Union agent located worldwide.
This feature is not particularly new, since something similar is offered by other messaging platforms such as BBMoffer or WeChat. Facebook Messenger also started to offer this feature last year.
Viber's update includes, however, more interesting features than just the ability to send money via messaging. In addition, Viber now included the ability to backup and restore messages, to send and receive animated GIFs and Viber Out calling plans.
The online publication iClarified reports that users can now manually save their Viber message history to iCloud. Viber's users can also access their balance and buy special low-rate calling plans or new credits via a redesigned screen.
The new update has introduced Apple Watch OS 2 support, as well. According to the website gadgets.ndtv.com, Viber also released a Universal app for Windows 10 devices just a few days ago.
Viber has a worldwide audience of more than 711 million users. The biggest competitor for Viber is WhatsApp, with its one billion user base.
Viber allows securely making free HD-quality phone and video calls over mobile networks or WiFi. There is no need to register to Viber, since the user's phone number is used as Viber ID. The mobile contact list is synced automatically.
The application allows creating group messages with up to 200 friends, sharing links, stickers, video and photos. With Viber Out credits it is possible to make calls to landline and non-Viber mobile numbers. Viber Wink feature allows sending messages that disappear after being viewed.
