Contact list

The contact list is synced with your phone so you can contact anyone, but they will need to have Viber too if you want to make free audio or video calls or send text messages.

Public chat

You can explore the current public chats and watch the participants converse, but you won't be able to join in. Viber says that's coming in a future update.
