Viber Message

Sending Viber messages with Omnichannel API.


The easiest way to use Omnichannel API is with our official libraries. Libraries will take care of authentication, request validation and response handling.

Before sending WhatsApp, Viber or Telegram messages, please contact our support team. These providers require some extra verification before approving sender ID.

Send Viber Message

Use the following example to send a Viber Message using Omnichannel API.

# pip install messente-api

from pprint import pprint

    OmnimessageApi,
    Omnimessage,
    Configuration,
    ApiClient,
    Viber,

configuration = Configuration()
configuration.username = "YOUR_MESSENTE_API_USERNAME"
configuration.password = "YOUR_MESSENTE_API_PASSWORD"

api_instance = OmnimessageApi(ApiClient(configuration))

viber = Viber(sender="<sender name (optional)>", text="hello viber")

omnimessage = Omnimessage(
    messages=tuple([viber]), to="<recipient_phone_number>"
)

try:
    response = api_instance.send_omnimessage(omnimessage)
    print(
        "Successfully sent Omnimessage with id: %s that consists of the following messages:"
        % response.omnimessage_id
    )
    for message in response.messages:
        pprint(message)
except ApiException as exception:
    print("Exception when sending an omnimessage: %s\n" % exception)

Features

Viber messages are not limited to SMS restrictions. You can use text, images or buttons in your messages for the same price.

Viber has different price and content requirements for transactional and marketing messages. Contact us to learn more.

Possible combinations of text, image and button elements:

Text Button Image
