Be a part of a Viber Community
Everyone can be a part of a Community on Viber. A Community can be as big as 1 billion members, or as small as a few people coming together to discuss their interests. Join an existing public Community and take part today.
Check out how to create a Community.
A Community is like a group chat but bigger and better.
There is no limit to the number of members in a Community - the only limit is the number of people who use the Viber app.
You can join a new Community simply by tapping on a link. In some public Communities you can also send the invitation link to your friends to join.
When you join a Community you can see all the chat that took place before you joined.
Communities can create a collection of favorite media sent in chat.
They also have all the same features as group chats:
Pinned messages at the top of the chat.
Direct replies to a message in the chat.
Mention another member of the Community to bring them into the conversation.
Send stickers, gifs, songs, links, pictures and more to the Community.
Communities are managed by superadmins and admins.
Tap on the link in your group invitation or on social media to join the Community.
Accept the invitation
1. Open the invitation link
2. Tap on Follow on the invitation
And that’s it, you are now a member of a Community!
If you have been invited to a group, but don't have Viber you will be directed to the app store to download and join Viber.

2. Customize it - highlight it, add stickers, write text
3. Share it on Viber, and the invite link will automatically be added to the message.

Your privacy within the chat is important to us.
Your phone number is hidden from the chat. No other member of the group can see your phone number.
When you write in the group your Viber user name and image will appear next to your messages.
