But what exactly is Viber Out? Well we all have used Viber to make free calls to other Viber users. But what if you wanted to make an urgent call to someone across the world who doesn’t have Viber? Yes you can definitely make a GSM call but what if you don’t want to spend that much money.
That’s where Viber Out comes into action, it let’s Viber users make calls to people who don’t have the Viber app, showing a middle finger to Skype Out feature by charging a low per-minute rate to mobile or landline numbers.
According to Viber, the prices are generally lower than Skype.
To use Viber Out, just visit the “More” tab, and choose Viber Out. From there, you’ll be able to purchase Viber Out credit. No update is necessary to access the new feature.
Additionally, Viber is including even more stickers to the revenue-generating Sticker Market.
As it stands now, Viber stickers and Viber Out represent the entirety of Viber’s business model, but CEO Talmon Marco promises more sources of revenue in the future.
“Profitability is certainly something on our roadmap, but we currently plan to invest more in the business,” said Marco.
Viber Out is available across iOS, Android and Desktop, with a Windows Phone version coming soon.
