Viber Messaging App Arrives on the Desktop for PC and Mac






Viber has recently announced their release of Viber Desktop bringing the popular free messaging and VoIP service to both the PC and Mac. The new versions seamlessly integrate with existing mobile versions of the app and provide the same super-simple setup process that uses your phone number as your ID.


Viber has revolutionized free messaging and VoIP 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.


The 3.0 release also brought a redesigned and improved Viber app for Android and iOS and now includes the following features:
  • Video messages
  • New stickers
  • Last online status
  • Enhanced photo experience
  • Performance improvements
  • New voice engine
  • Android version security fix
