Updated:6 months, 3 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, March 02 (ANI): Cross-platform instant messaging and voice over IP (VoIP) application Viber on Thursday has announced the biggest group chat - Viber Community, with group "limits" of up to one billion members, in a bid to drive more usage and bring in more users to the app. Members of the groups will be able to interact with comments and reactions, and group administrators will be able to monetise the streams, tapping into a network of app partners and the larger e-commerce and media business of Rakuten, which owns Viber, according to TechCrunch. Viber's launch of Communities comes at an interesting time for the app. Given the popularity of the large group chat features of the other similar apps, Viber could be hoping this launch will drive more active usage of the app, and maybe new users.
