Viber has launched Viber Communities, a feature that offers a chat space where up to 1 billion members will be able to exchange messages and engage with one another.
Viber Communities provides tiered management roles and moderation tools so Community owners may create the environment they envision for their Community. Super admins control community member roles, with the ability to add members and promote them to admin or super admin status, ban or block members, decide whether or not they can participate in conversations, and if they can invite new members into the Community.

Super admins can even grow their Communities and make them accessible to new members by enabling a share link or revoking the link at any time. They can assign admins to support them in moderating conversations, with the option to delete one or all messages sent by any member, and by pinning messages to guide discussions. Admins also have the ability to add or remove members when needed.
New Community members have access to the complete history of a Community and can contribute to the conversation with all of Viber’s messaging features—such as GIFs, stickers, pictures, videos, and simple text.
The feature will be slowly rolled out to users globally.
