SINGAPORE – November 19th 2014, Viber, the leading mobile communications app offering free messaging and HD-quality calls, today announced Public Chats, a new feature that allows users to discover, share and interact with conversations, communities and content on mobile.
Public Chats are live discussions between celebrities and personalities that Viber users can follow. They offer a new kind of social experience – tapping into live conversations as they happen. Anyone on Viber can follow as many of these chats as they like on their mobile device. Conversations are multi-media and include text, photos, audio, video, stickers, web links and more. Users can invite friends to follow the Public Chats that interest them and can share content.
Viber Public Chats will be launched today in Singapore featuring local partners and joined by key Viber representatives, Mark Hardy, Viber’s Chief Marketing Officer and Michael Shmilov, Viber’s Head of Product, via a live Q&A chat session on Viber.
Basically you can follow and read live chats by the groups that you post about. It’s a neat idea, and we’re glad to see Viber pushing out such new innovations to their services. We’ll be using Viber Public Chats extensively as a live feed for TFT, so do make sure to follow us HERE.
