• Viber Updated to Version 4.1, Announces Viber Out for Cheap International Calling



    The popular VoIP and messaging service, Viber, recently announced the release of version 4.1 of its mobile app for the Android and iOS platforms. The update includes the full global launch of Viber Out, a new feature that allows users to make low-cost calls to any mobile or landline phone number. The service uses credit that can be purchased through in-app purchases or via credit card, and the minutes can be used on Android, iOS or your desktop. The whole concept is very similar to that of Skype’s except Viber’s rates are much lower and it won’t be charging connection fees.

    The press release mentions the following regarding the update:

    Now with the official worldwide launch, Viber Out enables all Viber users to call anyone worldwide at low rates on Android, iPhone and Desktop, coming to Windows Phone in the future. Viber Out credit can be bought with an in-app purchase from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, or with a credit card via Viber Desktop. Additionally, Viber Out has a significantly lower price-per-call than other competing services due to lower per minute rates and the omission of connection fees. [...]

    Unlike competing services, Viber Out displays your real phone number to the recipient so he or she knows who is calling. Further, Viber Out on Desktop has your phone’s address book so you don’t have to remember numbers or dial them manually.
    The company currently claims that its goal is to deliver HD audio at rates that are “highly competitive” and with a quick glance, they seem to be doing that. In addition to adding Viber Out, the 4.1 update also seems to add new stickers and other improvements.


    Those of you who are interested in checking it out can download the app for free through the App Store.

      Exactly! Where is it? Where's any news on it? :-(

      But since I'm writing, I can Skype the UK for 2.3c/min. 2.3c*3 = 6.9c/min. Not sure where the numbers above are coming from. To be fair, Skype calls typically drop so many times during those 3 minutes that it will end up costing you 86.6c anyway.
