Viber is a popular, cross-platform (runs on various platforms), free instant voice over IP (VoIP) and messaging application that was developed by the “Viber Media” company before being sold to the “Rakuten” Japanese multinational company. This application allows you to send instant messages, make video and audio calls and share images, videos and audio files to various people across the world at absolutely no hidden costs.
The Viber communications app, which currently has more than 800 million Android, iOS, and PC users, provides various reliable privacy and customization features. The phone number that you always use to access Viber is basically what is commonly referred to as your Viber account.
