OTT messaging app, Viber has announced that it now has more than 100 million concurrent online users and over 360 million unique registered users.
When online users are counted alongside users that are available via push notification, the company estimates that over 200 million users are reachable via the platform at any given time.
"As usage increases, our priority remains the same - introducing features, adding more platforms, and improving Viber with every new version. This is exactly what we've done with the new Viber Desktop, and we're really excited for our users to try it out," said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber.
Viber announced the milestones alongside the release of a new version of Viber Desktop that features a new look and feel with a special focus on its "stickers" service. Now, it's easier than ever for users to find, select, and add stickers to their conversations with a prominently displayed sticker menu that can be docked to the side of the app.
Viber Desktop has also been upgraded for better video quality and performance.
On top of this, the Viber support site is now available in two more languages - Portuguese and Spanish in addition to the existing support for English and Japanese.
