    • The app is
      reminiscent of features from Snapchat, which has risen to popularity because of
      its disappearing photo messages.

    • Like Snapchat, Viber
      Wink also enables users to add text to their pictures. The photos or short
      videos sent can only appear on the recipient’s screen for up to 10 seconds.
      After that, the content gets deleted, the report said.

    • “It’s clear to
      us that our users want more control over their messages. A good example was the
      highly positive reception to our recent ‘delete message’ feature, which allows
      you to remotely delete messages even after they have been sent. Wink is another
      example of putting users in charge, but in a fun way. We hope that Wink
      actually encourages users to share more by letting them control how their
      photos and videos are received…” said Ofir Eyal, head of product at
      Viber.

    • Viber Wink users can
      send pictures or short videos to any of their Viber contacts, who can view the
      content once even if they don’t have the new app. The app is available for free
      on iOS and Android platforms, the company said.
