Viber is blocked in UAE! Unblock it with Sahrzad!

viber_1Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has said that the Viber, which offers free internet call service to users, was never licensed in the UAE, media reports said.

“We have recently seen local newspapers and social networks publishing news with regards to the ‘Viber’ service being blocked in the UAE. We would like to clarify that the service was never licensed in the UAE,” the telecom regulator agency reportedly said.

The VoIP (Voice-over-Internet Protocol) regulatory policy of the country has only licensed etisalat and du to provide telecommunication services in the UAE, it said.

“This policy still exists and has not been amended.”

Although officially blocked, UAE residents have been able to access Skype on du, and last year, Etisalat announced that it would also unblock the service.

However, Apple devices including iPhones and iPads do not come with the FaceTime app, which allows for free video calling services between Apple product users.

Meanwhile, reports have also emerged that popular mobile messaging service provider WhatsApp is soon planning to introduce free voice calls for its users, the reports said.

“The leaked images of the upcoming user interface show that the app has been enabled with other language translations which will be displayed at the time a person receives a call via WhatsApp,” the gaming site The Fuse Joplin reportedly said.
