No to ‘notification fatigue’

With endless messages, birthday reminders, delivery updates, conference call schedules, and other notifications popping up on our devices, it has become incredibly easy to be distracted or feel overwhelmed by the constant stimulus. 

Leading instant messaging platform Viber has rolled out a new feature that empowers users to set reminders for tasks and other important events in My Notes.

Viber’s My Notes lets users keep track of all their messages.

The new capability enables users to keep track of all their messages with colleagues, family, and friends, as well as all important reminders in a single easy-to-use app that emphasizes user privacy.

Users simply need to long-tap any message in My Notes and tap “Set Reminder.” They are prompted to select a time and date for the reminder and decide whether they want it to repeat, and the reminder will pop up on their phone at the selected time. 

This new feature comes on top of other capabilities available in My Notes, allowing users to: (1) Take down notes for tasks, events, or other purposes; (2) Mark their tasks as “done,” as well as hide finished notes; and (3) Forward messages from other chats to My Notes. 

Forwarded messages from other chats into My Notes will show from which chat they were forwarded, so the user always remembers the context.

“We recognize our users’ need to maintain control over their lives and quickly adapt to a reality that changes, in many cases, by the minute. As such, Viber is happy to introduce this feature to help users streamline all their messages and reminders into one single app that is easy to use and actually values their privacy,” said Anna Znamenskayal of Rakuten Viber.
