Back then,?Viber?was considered as one of the leading messaging app on the market. It allows you to call other person?even when they are on different platforms or OS?and it?s free. You just have to connect to any wireless connection in your area and you?re in!

Sadly, with WhatsApp?s latest achievement of reaching 1 Billion downloads, they have now taken the lead with over 700,000 monthly active users. However, looks like Viber is now ready for another round and it bought something even more exciting, could this update possibly go head-to-head against WhatsApp, the leading messaging App for Android?

You can now play games when you update your Viber messaging app!

Games within a messenger app are pretty much common, well, at least in the past that is. In case you didn?t know, a few years back, Yahoo Messenger once did this kind of stunt during its peak of popularity. Now, Viber is reintroducing this kind of system back into the instant messaging world.

According to a report from The Rem, the messaging app had recently rolled out their latest update for both iOS and Android OS. On that patch users can now play against each other and compete for scores.

There are currently three games available within the App and they are:

  • Viber Pop
  • Wildluck Casino
  • Viber Candy Mania

As stated on that report, other leading game developers across the world are now partnered with the app, so expect to see more games in the app possibly in a few months or so.

The Rem did also mentioned on their report that Viber is not the only messaging app today that has this kind of feature, Tango and WeChat also offer this kind of entertainment for their users.

There?s still no news though whether these games are free or not and even if they charge its users a few bucks, the developers will still release a few free ones so that everyone can enjoy the great update.

As for the price of these paid games, Viber still hasn?t released any information yet regarding the cost for each games so stay tuned for more updates.
