Viber introduces Secret Messages

Viber  logoMessaging platform Viber introduced a new feature called Secret Messages. It allows you to set a self-destruct timer for your messages.

It works pretty simple - you take a photo and if you think it shouldn’t stay forever, you tap on the clock and decide how many seconds should the picture be alive. It sounds a lot like Snapchat - once the other person sees the picture, it’s gone forever. There’s no backsies or several previews like in Instagram Stories or Messenger’s My Day.

When you post the picture at first it’s blurry to you and the other side and when it’s opened and previewed - it’s gone from the other’s person chat and you see just a trace of the image. Viber says it “lets you decide what should and shouldn’t be a permanent part of your conversation history”.

Another feature that Viber got is Instant video messages - just tap and hold the instant video icon to capture the moment with 30-second videos and when you release the button, the video is on its way.

The update is already available on Google Play and App Store.
