Rakuten Viber has launched a monthly premium subscription in Ukraine, which will provide the user with access to seven new features, according to the company’s press release.

Viber Plus subscription costs $1.99 per month.

A paid subscription provides access to seven new features. By subscribing to Viber Plus, you will get the opportunity to read voice messages.

“If the voice caught you again at an awkward moment, just click on it and get a text transcript,” the company writes.

You’ll also be able to turn on “stealth mode” if you want to see if your contacts are online without revealing your own status.

Also, you won’t see any information that you’ve read the message.

The subscription also gives you the option to limit advertising messages and not see ads in the box after calls.

You’ll also get unlimited access to stickers at no extra charge, a chat with support when you need to resolve issues promptly, an exclusive icon next to your profile photo, and the ability to change the style of the app icon.

You can pay for Viber Plus through Google Play or the App Store, depending on your device. The subscription will automatically renew every month until the user cancels it.

As a reminder, Viber launches protection against fraudsters and spam. The feature will soon be available in Ukraine.
