Use Viber Deep Links

In this article, we will guide you through how to add deep links in your Viber message, using the Apifon platform.

Viber deep links is a feature that allows you to perform actions inside Viber's application.


When creating a Viber Message, you can add a deep link so that when the subscribers click on it, an action within Viber's app will be performed, instead of opening a landing page.

You can use the deep link by inserting it into your Viber Quick message or Campaign or template, either in the button's URL field or in the text area. 


Available Viber deep links are the following:

  1. Click to Call - viber://keypad?number=<number>
  2. Open Chat - viber://chat?service=<serviceid>
  3. Public Account - viber://public?id=<uniqueID>
  4. QR Scanner - viber://more/qr
  5. Chatbot Conversation - viber://pa?chatURI=<URI>
  6. Chatbot Info Screen - viber://pa/info?uri=<URI>
  7. Custom Chatbot Context - viber://pa?chatURI=<URI>&context=<YourContext>
