Everybody is cloning Snap at this moment, yet informing application Viber has backpedaled to the old school by duplicating Snapchat’s center vaporous informing highlight.
Not at all like Facebook, which has tossed Snapchat’s 24-hour Story mode into the majority of its center versatile applications, Viber — which was procured by Rakuten for barely short of $1 billion three years prior — has duplicated the first element that helped Snapchat first make its name in informing.
Today, Viber for iOS and Android got a refresh today which presents to ‘Mystery Chats’ to the administration surprisingly. Like Snapchat, Facebook, Telegram and numerous others before it, Viber now empowers its clients to set a clock for their messages after which they will self-destruct. The new element likewise alarms a client if the individual they are conversing with takes a screenshot, that is another component that Snapchat spearheaded.
Viber has guaranteed for quite a while that its administration has more than 800 million enrolled clients, yet it has kept noiseless on what number of those are really dynamic — that is the immensely essential number. It has a solid system of clients in specific parts of Latin America and North Africa, and in Myanmar and the Philippines in Southeast Asia, yet it is a long way from as generally prominent as WhatsApp or Messenger.
It’s been a genuinely frenzied recent months of news for Viber. It named some time ago versatile publicizing official Djamel Agaoua as its CEO a month ago — establishing CEO Talmon Marco left the organization some time prior; he as of now runs Uber equal Juno — while it has included a scope of new elements that incorporate a web based business catch, open records, one-touch video calling, and vanishing sight and sound.
With the worldwide informing space quite settled as the applications of decision have cemented their positions in many parts of the world, Viber applies to push its security qualifications in a bit to separate itself from the rest. It added end-to-end encryption and shrouded talks a year ago, despite the fact that analysts raised questions around a portion of the organization’s cases.
