LONDON -- December 10, 2013

Viber (www.viber.com) announced today the release of Viber 4.1 for Android and
iPhone which includes the full global launch of Viber Out, a new feature that
allows users to make low-cost calls to any mobile or landline phone number.

Viber had previously enabled Viber Out for users in the Philippines in the
aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan to help users contact friends and loved ones. To
provide free calls from the Philippines, Viber partnered with telcos across
the world including Telecom Austria, Telecom New Zealand, Hutchison, Bharti
Airtel, Telecom Italia, Citic, Netvision Cellcom, Mada Communication and
Omantel. Viber also partnered with Globe Telecom to allow users worldwide to
call the Philippines for free.

Now with the official worldwide launch, Viber Out enables all Viber users to
call anyone worldwide at low rates on Android, iPhone and Desktop, coming to
Windows Phone in the future. Viber Out credit can be bought with an in-app
purchase from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, or with a credit
card via Viber Desktop. Additionally, Viber Out has a significantly lower
price-per-call than other competing services due to lower per minute rates and
the omission of connection fees.

“Viber Out gives our millions of users a new way to use Viber and ensures that
they can reach any contact at any time,” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber. “We
will continue to improve Viber Out, keeping our users connected at the most
affordable rates possible.”

Unlike competing services, Viber Out displays your real phone number to the
recipient so he or she knows who is calling. Further, Viber Out on Desktop has
your phone’s address book so you don’t have to remember numbers or dial them
manually.

Viber Out joins the Viber Sticker Market as the app’s second paid feature. As
part of this release, Viber added new stickers and will continue to add more
content. Viber also released a new promotional video highlighting one of its
signature characters – Violet.
