Mobile apps are going through major updates these days and recently a lot of social media apps just added new features for their users. From Snapchat, Instagram to WhatsApp things are getting upgraded before new years arrives and feels like they all had planned to make your new year more expressive and connected as compared to past year.
Viber has just released a new update few days back that surely will bring ability for you all to record a video message and send it to any of your friends. A part from that there are other behind the door work going on, third party services are taken from different big names and are further offers are also made to integrate their services in Viber. Third party services are taken from Wikipedia, Giphy, and emoticons.
It is convenient for users now , the major update now is that you all just need need to tap for a recording of 30 second long video message and share it with your friends now, instead of recording it and then finding it then send to people in your friends list by selecting them all one by one and adding them. That’s not obviously an innovative feature but anyways they have added features that every social media app user looks for if don’t people shift to another app. Indeed, now there is shift in features, app users are focused more on features addition than looking up for who added it first or not.
They had implemented integration of this new feature in chat window, all you need to do is swipe that voice button with video button and then you are ready to make a clip and is ready for you send where you can cancel or record again but there is limitation of 30 seconds of clip recording, different thing is its cropped into circular shape. The additional thing is that there is no expiration date as it has that in Snapchat. Just keep recording little clips of fireworks or any other things you are doing on Christmas and doing things this coming new year.
Michael Shmilov, COO -Viber, had claimed
“With the addition of Chat Extensions, people can now access a variety of external services directly from their chat screen, search, and instantly share content with their friends.”
Now coming to integration part they did with third party is another great thing for different kind of chatters we see these range of integration with third party services as mentioned earlier include Giphy, Wikipedia, and TheMovieDB. TheMovieDB seems like another type of IMDB that has options to buy videos / movies from one place with details that’s a great feature for smartphone users that is putting less reliance on personal system to look up for details and share them. Viber stickers accessibility has also been added for short hands access just use ‘@’ with name stickers (‘@stickers’) and you will get access to services of whole stickers where you can select you favorite ones send them. These updates are for both Android and iOS users just get your updated version now from respective stores.
