Viber recently launched the possibility for you to create public accounts, also known as business accounts. With this functionality, you can have a channel of communication with your customers where they can ask questions and still send messages directly to those who follow your company.
At JivoChat we are increasingly concerned about integrating all your communication channels and so we have completed integration with Viber so that you can receive all of Viber’s messages directly from JivoChat directly in your Jivo application! :)
