Viber Out Makes Cheap VoIP Calls
Viber today announced the worldwide launch of Viber Out. Viber Out is a new service that allows Viber users to make internet-based voice calls to other Viber users, as well as any landline or cell phone. Viber is able to use the user's own phone number when making calls, even though the calls are connected through the data plan and not the voice network. Viber Out charges low per-minute rates to most countries. Viber Out is available today for Android smartphones and the iPhone. Viber says it will support Windows Phone soon. In order to use Viber Out, customers will have to download the latest version of the Viber application and add credits to their account. Viber is a platform-agnostic messaging app. Now that it makes voice calls, it competes more directly with Skype.
