Free VOIP app makes base on Google’s platform.
Android users looking for a solid VOIP service can add one more to their list. Viber today announced that it has officially launched its app on the Android Market. Viber allows users to make voice calls and send messages to other Viber users free of charge.
“This is an incredibly exciting day for us,” said Talmon Marco, Viber CEO. “We have been looking forward to launching our Android app, especially after having received a staggering number of requests from Android users asking us to bring Viber to the Android market. Our latest user numbers are the best indicator of how much our users love to talk and send messages for free with Viber.”
“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank more than 50,000 users who have been testing the beta version of Viber for Android since May,” Marco said “The beta test allowed us to refine the app and prepare it for widespread release.”
The company also took the opportunity to slice some stats our way: Viber now has a base of 20 million registered users, out of which 12 million are active and use the VOIP services for 11 million minutes every day (an avg of 6 mins per call).
