Not only this, users can have two conversations going with the same person or group at the same time. One of them will be regular chat and other one will be secret chat.

Viber said in a blog post:

You can have two conversations going with the same person or group at the same time – one regular chat and one secret chat. You’ll know which one of them is secret by the lock badge on the chat icon. Starting a secret chat from an existing regular chat will not delete or replace the regular chat, it will just start a separate one.

Here is how this feature will work:
