If you're going to try rivaling Skype, you may as well go big or go home. For Viber, over the past few months, this has meant taking its messaging and VoIP calling services to a different level, one that feels more like a mini social network with each passing update. And, without doubt, it helps to have resources at hand from Rakuten, its parent company. Accordingly, Viber has now announced that it is adding games to its platform, in a push to continue growing its ecosystem and give users features beyond calling and messaging.

At launch, Viber Games is going to have Candy Mania, Pop and Wild Luck Casino, which Viber created in tandem with developers Storm8 and Playtika. Along with the plans to expand its initial game lineup, Viber will bring the new feature to every country where its service is available -- for now, Viber Games is limited to Belarus, Israel, Malaysia and Singapore.
