Viber is an instant messaging and Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) application that’s available on multiple platforms. The application allows you to send video and audio media messages, but also to exchange images.
The application is currently available for Windows Phone, BlackBerry OS, Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android and Microsoft Windows. In addition, a 64-bit Linux version of the application is available for Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and openSUSE.
Today we will talk about the new Viber version for Windows 10 that has just been released and the new things that come with it. First of all, we remind you that that Viber has released a major update of its UWP application which brought support for Video Call, transparent live tiles and more.
The Viber version 6.2 for Windows 10 has just been released and it comes with usual bug fixes, but also rich links. We remind you that Viber also supports Quick Reply feature in Windows, which means that you are now able to reply with ease to messages that have been sent from Viber.
This feature is also present in other messaging applications that are available for Windows 10 such as Skype and Line. Viber is also supported by Cortana on Windows 10 which means that users are able to quickly start phone calls via the AI. More new features and options are expected to be released to this application sometime in the near future.
The application can be downloaded and installed directly from the Windows Store, but keep in mind that you will still need a mobile phone number to create an account on Viber and only after that you will be able to use the application on a desktop device.
Are you using Cortana to make calls on Viber or do you prefer to make calls using the old “fashion” way? What other new features do you expect to be added to the application?
