Landline and international calls are now free on Viber

MANILA, Philippines – Viber now offers Filipinos 30 minutes of free calls to any phone number, mobile or landline, every month to keep their loved ones connected.

This new offering on Viber will allow users to make longer calls to phone numbers in 60 different countries, and the Philippines will be the first to benefit.

The Philippines was chosen as a testing ground as Viber marked key growth for the messaging application in the Asia Pacific region, which saw a 50% increase in voice calls in 2021.

It’s no surprise, either, as Viber has always been designed to connect people without a smartphone or internet access through affordable calling subscriptions.

This initiative will not only be available in the Philippines, but also in countries with large Filipino communities such as Hong Kong, Kuwait and Singapore.

“Innovation and our users will always be at the heart of everything we do at Viber,” said Viber’s Senior Director for Asia Pacific, David Tse. “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.”

Tse added that this new offering is the company’s “small way to bring the convenience of our technology to more people.”
