Messenger app Viber restored in Saudi, says report
Manama: A popular internet messenger application called Viber has been restored in Saudi Arabia within few days of its suspension according to a Saudi news site report.
The users have since been able to send and receive calls and messages, the Gulf News reports.
However the report said that it is not clear if the application company had complied with the terms specified by Saudi Arabia or if it had resorted to alternatives.
Saudi authorities had banned Viber last week for allegedly failing to comply with the country’s regulations, to which, Viber’s founder and CEO Talmon Marco replied that the company will find a solution to restore operations within weeks.
Viber is very well known and commonly used service among millions of expatriates living in the country and thousands of Saudis studying abroad, the report added.
