Viber releases Desktop Version (with video)
Posted on 8-May-2013 08:36 | Tags Filed under: News


Viber has released Viber Desktop for PC and Mac, seamlessly integrating with existing mobile versions of the app and provide the same super-simple setup process that uses your phone number as your ID.

The company also announced today that it has over 200 million users across the various platforms that it supports.

Viber offers free messaging and voice on mobile with its popular app for leading platforms including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and others. Now with the release of Viber Desktop, users have one easy-to-use and always available solution for free messages and calls.

One of the strengths of Viber is its easy activation process. The company has replicated the same process with Viber Desktop. As soon as you enter your mobile number and a confirmation code which is sent to your mobile Viber app, you are ready to go! All of your mobile Viber contacts are instantly and continuously synced from your mobile Viber to Viber Desktop.

Viber Desktop and the latest versions of the Viber app were designed from the ground up for individuals using Viber on multiple devices, so you can always use the app that’s right for you, whether at home, in school, at the office, or on the go. Viber offers far more flexibility than any similar product. Some of the key combined features include:

- Seamlessly transfer calls between Viber Desktop and the Viber app with one click or tap
- Received and Sent messages are shown on all devices, but will only “beep” on the device you are currently using
- Messages and conversations you delete from one device will be removed from all devices

On top of this, Viber Desktop is Viber’s first application to offer video calls. With this new beta feature, users can now make desktop-to-desktop video calls to other Viber users.



“People spend a substantial amount of time on their smartphones,” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber. “However, a lot of that usage takes place at home or in the office, where they have laptops or desktops close by. With Viber Desktop you always get to use the most convenient device. You can seamlessly switch devices while messaging and even transfer calls between your mobile and desktop.”

The release of Viber Desktop is part of the roll out of Viber 3.0, the next major version of the platform. The 3.0 release includes major updates to both the Android and iOS versions of the app, as well as a new version for BlackBerry that ensures voice calling as well as compatibility with Viber Desktop.

Viber for Android now features a completely redesigned “Holo” interface as well as numerous Android specific optimizations.

Both the Android and iOS versions were not only designed to ensure seamless communication with the new desktop version but also include a host of new features.
