Viber has allowed its power starved users in Nepal to make free outgoing calls, even as the country suffers from disconnected communication lines and severe shortage of power as a result of the sever earthquake.
The company also said that it would soon announce a decision to make inbound calls to Nepal free as well.
In response to a tweet about making calls to Nepal free the Viber said, “Free inbound Viber Out calls to Nepal will be available soon as well.”
Earlier, the company had announced that it has made all outgoing calls originating from Nepal free to help the earthquake survivors reach out to their family and friends.
