Everyone must have heard of COVID-19 by now, a pandemic that has taken the world by a wave. The virus has been spreading at an alarming rate, and for that reason, it’s been declared a pandemic by world health organization not very long ago. Subsequently, many places and organizations are being quarantined as a step taken towards mitigating the spread of the virus. And for the same reasons, the health organizations have been requesting the companies to provide a suitable environment for their employees to work from their homes, even in the places where the outbreak hasn’t taken place yet.
It would seem like a challenge, having employees work at their home. But being healthy is more important. Also, working at home is not that absurd in this age of technology. Nowadays, technology could facilitate a working environment as productive as a well-furnished office at your home.
To provide a suitable environment for the companies and the employees in mind, Viber has recently doubled the number of people that could be in a group call. Now ten people can be in the same Viber group calls simultaneously, which would definitely be enough even for a meeting of a moderately huge company.
Here’s an official tweet from Viber regarding the update in Viber Group Calls
Other than that, there are various ways you could use Viber for the smoothness of work amidst the disaster that coronavirus is. You could send files up to the size of 200 MB through the Viber. It would help create an even pace between all the employees at home by providing them with all the important files that would require working with them. You could even hold an important meeting in the elegant fashion through the video chat services of Viber.
