iOS Question

Launching Viber app via URL scheme on iOS

I'm making an iOS app which can open Viber app and automatically call a person or go to chat window with the person. Is there any url scheme for Viber to do that such as:

viber://tel:<phone_number>
viber://chat:<phone_number>


I followed this link but it's for Android.

Answer

I sent a mail to the Viber support and they told me that this kind of URL (opening Viber call/chat with a phone number) are no more supported. When typing Viber version is 5.6.

Look at their answer:

support@viber.com:

"Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, there isn’t such option in Viber."


The only thing I've found is an url to forward a message: https://www.viber.com/en/developers/share_on_viber you can specify the text but not the recipient

Example:

viber://forward?text=foo
