NEW DELHI: Mobile communications firm Viber Thursday launched Viber Games worldwide in partnership with leading game developers.
The games were built using a new private application-programming interface (API) that allows users to sign in with their Viber ID to connect with their friends and contacts and send gifts and boast about their achievements, the company in a statement said.
The new gaming range features Viber Candy Mania and Viber Pop from leading mobile game network Storm8 and Wild Luck Casino.
The users will also be able to send game invites via Viber, and can also see games that their friends currently play.
"Viber Games is the latest feature in our ongoing enhancement of the Viber platform," Michael Shmilov, COO, Viber said.
"Whether users are bragging about their achievements, sending gifts or simply checking out what their friends are playing, Viber Games is another engaging way for people to connect within the app," Shmilov added.
"As a pioneering leader in mobile social games, we are committed to partnering with companies that expand our reach and provide innovative player experiences," Terence Fung, Storm8 Chief Strategy Officer said.
