It seems that the developers of Viber haven’t been active lately, since the latest version for the Android platform has been launched a month ago. The installation file has 36.48MB and contains minor improvements and additions, but more about this update we’ll tell you in this article.
Viber is a messaging application with around 250 million active users and it was launched five years ago. The developers created it for the following platforms: Android, iOS, BlackBerry OS, Series 40, Symbian, Bada, Windows Phone, Linux, Windows and Mac OS. To sign into your account from a computer, first you need to install the application on a mobile device, because the account is registered using a mobile phone number.
The features that are offered by Viber include sending text messages, pictures, videos and the users are able to call their friends, but the voice calling feature is available only for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone. In version 2.3, Viber added smileys and the latest version 220.127.116.113 brought Group Likes, where the users are “liking” other friends’ vibes; Forward Public Chat messages, allowing the users to share content more easily; the text messages support now up to 7,000 characters; the video messaging experience has been improved and Public Chats are now available on Android tablets.
You can download the version 18.104.22.1683 from Viber’s official website or from third party websites, but in this case, you need to enable to Unknown Source option by tapping the box in front of it, but you must go to Settings > Applications. The application is also available on the Google Play store, and in this case, you don’t need to enable the Unknown Source option.
