Mobile communications firm, Viber on Thursday launched Viber Games worldwide, which was initially just a pilot project available in five countries, Belarus, Malaysia, Israel, Singapore and Ukraine.
The games were built using a new private API, which allows the user to sign in with their Viber ID. This will allow users to send game invites to other users, send gifts and keep track of what games the other users are playing.
The new gaming range features Viber Candy Mania and Viber Pop from leading mobile game network Storm8 and Wild Luck Casino.
“Viber Games is the latest feature in our ongoing enhancement of the Viber platform,” Michael Shmilov, COO, Viber said.
“Whether users are bragging about their achievements, sending gifts or simply checking out what their friends are playing, Viber Games is another engaging way for people to connect within the app,” Shmilov added.
Currently, only these three games are available but more games will soon be available. They are available on Google Play as well as App Store.
