Sharing is caring!

If using Viber free calling and messaging services makes you feel valued, there is something for you to even smile more in the new Viber for Android devices.

All Android users can get this application right from Google Play as well as the official website of the app. Viber is not a new app, in fact, it has been around for five years now and according to the app, more than 664 million own accounts with this platform, but other reports suggest that the app only has a monthly active user base of about 250 million users.

Installing Viber is a very easy thing. As mentioned, the app is available for free download via Google Play and once it is downloaded, installation is automatic. Like WhatsApp, the app will ask for your phone number for setting up your account and then look through your phone contacts to create a contacts list of its own. This chat app can be installed and synced with other devices including PCs and tablets.

The new version also adds features such as Viber sharing, following public chats, playing games as well as the much awaited Android Wear support. The latter update means that the application can now be installed on smartwatches and other wearables running on the Android Wear OS.
