Viber launches desktop client, refreshes mobile app design

Seamlessly continue conversations, calls and video chats from mobile to desktop

Popular cross-platform messaging and VOIP service Viber is introducing brand new desktop apps along with a complete refresh of its mobile apps today. First up are the desktop apps, which are now available for both Windows and Mac and give users the ability to continue all of their VIber conversations and activities just as they would on the phone. You can text and voice chat, send pictures and stickers, make video calls and even transfer audio calls between devices mid-call.

On the mobile side, Viber v3.0 refreshes the interface, and enables a new set of features to be in sync with what the desktop now offers. The mobile app now lets you send stickers, leave video messages and a couple of back-end improvements such as sound quality and language localization. If you haven't yet tried Viber you can grab the app from the Play Store link above, and the desktop versions from the link below.

  • Hello, I tried installing the viber desktop on win 8 pc. But it didnt installed. Any comments?
  • I am having issues with my viber after I installed the updates the day before on my phone. I had to uninstall it to get rid of messages constantly flashing on my android phone telling me that the application has crashed. I reinstalled it yesterday but didn't receive a code (SMS/telephone). I uninstalled it and reinstalled it again but the problem persists. There also problems with your support site. I have installed viber on my desktop too, but I haven't received the verification codes for that either.
