What is important to know

Group chats are convenient for joint conversations when you need to quickly inform several people at once or discuss it together. A Viber group can have a maximum of 250 users. In such a chat, all messages sent by any of the participants are visible.

If you no longer want to be in a group, you can simply leave it and remove it from your chat list. But leaving does not mean deleting it or deleting any of the members, even if you are an administrator.

To terminate a chat, the administrator must first manually clear it from the rest of the people, and then exit and delete the group. If all users leave it, the latter receives a message that he is the only participant in the conversation.
