Viber, one of the world’s leading apps for free and easy communication, is giving Filipino users more ways to stay connected with their family, friends, or colleagues wherever they are in the world by offering them free 30 minutes of calls to any mobile or landline number every month.
Viber has been allowing its users to get in touch with loved ones, coworkers, or businesses who don’t have a smartphone or access to the internet by simply subscribing to an affordable calling plan. With this new offer, Filipino users are now able to enjoy longer calls to any number in 60 countries around the world.
The Philippines is one of the first markets in the world to enjoy this special offer, as it is the messaging app’s key growth area in the Asia Pacific with a 50% increase in voice calls in 2021. Free Viber calls will also be available in countries that have growing Filipino communities like Hong Kong, Kuwait, and Singapore.
“Innovation and our users will always be at the center of everything we do at Viber,” says David Tse, Rakuten Viber’s senior director for APAC. “Offering free calls to our Filipino users is our response to their increasing demand for high quality, crystal clear calls even with non-Viber users. With this special offer, we hope we’ll be able to help them reach out to family, friends, colleagues, or anyone in the world, even those who don’t have Viber yet. It’s our own little way of bringing the convenience of our technology to more people.”
