Viber, the leading mobile communications app offering HD-quality calls and free messaging, just announced a new public chats feature that will allow celebrities, public figures and other organizations to share group discussions with their fans and followers.

It’s a whole new ball game of social experience and interaction as public chats not only tap into live conversations as they happen, they allow anyone on Viber to follow as many of these chats as they like. These exclusive conversations are multimedia friendly, including text, photos, audio, video, stickers, links and more. Users can share content with their friends and invite others to join in on the fun.
