Viber hits 100 million concurrent active users


viber-desktop-app-updatePopular mobile messaging service Viber today announced that it now had around 100 million active users on the app at any given moment of time. Along with this announcement, the company also released a new desktop app with a design revamp and the introduction of new features.

Since its release in 2010, the service has steadily grown and in November last year the company announced that it had more than 200 million registered users, with more than 15 million users based in India. With 100 million active users, the app is fast catching up with the likes of Skype, which has around 300 million monthly active users. Earlier this year, Viber was also acquired by Japanese e-commerce site Rakuten, for a deal believed to be worth $900 million.

Viber s desktop app too has been updated with a design tweak that makes it easy for users to access the stickers. The company had introduced the sticker shop on desktop in November last year. With the update, users will be able to dock the sticker shop menu on the right side of your desktop for ease of access.
