Viber, a popular mobile VoIP app which enables users to make free phone calls and text messaging to other Viber users over 3G and Wi-Fi, is announcing today the official launch of the Android version of the app. Previously, it was a limited beta. Viber also stated that it has over 12 million active users (last 30 days) and has achieved an important benchmark - call traffic volume of over one billion minutes of calls per quarter.
Here are some exclusive Android Features not seen on other mobile versions (i.e. iPhone):
- Full call screen whenever a Viber call is received;
- Popup text message notification, which lets users respond to text messages without having to open Viber;
- Tighter integration with the phone, which allows users to see their regular call logs and messages within Viber;
- A default dialer setting that enables users to use the Viber dialer for all their phone calls, not just for Viber calls.
