Rakuten Viber soars past superapp status with major global updates

Rakuten Viber, the global leader in private and secure messaging and voice-based communication, announces two major launches worldwide as a new stage in the evolution of brand-user interaction on the app. The new offerings include a Business Inbox and a searchable Commercial Account, which will become the next step in Viber’s long-term superapp strategy.

According to research reports, 71% of consumers expect companies to deliver personalized interactions, and 82% of organizations plan to implement a value enhancement strategy to deliver a better customer value through services. With both users and businesses in mind, Viber’s updates are a step toward providing a better customer experience and brand engagement.

“This milestone update is Viber’s next step as a superapp that acts as a convenient one-stop-shop for all brand-user communications and interactions. It will be the foundation for other superapp features we will gradually introduce to increase the value of the app to the user and expand ways in which brands can connect with their audience,” says Ofir Eyal, CEO of Rakuten Viber. “More features, more services, and more channels of communication equals more value for users and brands, in fewer steps.”
