Viber Adds Stickers and Emoticon Features to VoIP and Messaging Application

If you’ve been waiting for a better way to express emotion or maybe even acknowledge an important event between yourself and your Viber contacts, you’re in luck, as Viber has just added new stickers and emoticons to its popular VoIP and IMing service.

Viber Stickers, Viber emoticons, Viber VoIP IM updates

The new features can be accessed by creating a new message and clicking on the “+” icon on the bottom of the screen, near the area where you type your actual message. The menu that comes up with give you the standard “Take a Photo,” “Photo Gallery,” and “Send Location” options, but if you swipe left, you’re greeted with an assortment of stickers that you can then send to your contacts. The emoticons are available if you swipe to the right. You can view the very numerous stickers and emoticons by scrolling down once you’ve accessed those respective menus.

Swipe left to access stickers or swipe right for emoticons.

Adding stickers and emoticons to Viber greatly extends custom messages and allows you to say things like “Happy birthday!” or “Happy Holidays!” to those who matter most to you.

    the biggest problem for me is that on every appliance that i have viber installed on, each one receives the messages. For example, if I type messages on my laptop at home, then they can be seen on my PC at work. Is there anyway around this ?

      At this stage there is no way to disable this feature (all Viber apps are synchronized).

      We are considering to add an option to make this optional in the future.

      Meanwhile, we invite you to enter our Feature Request page and post your
      suggestion there, or join an existing similar suggestion. Unfortunately
      it is not possible for us to integrate every suggested feature into
      Viber, but the more people join on a request, the faster it will become
      reality :)

      If you already purchased Stickers, then you may download them again (free of charge) off of our Sticker Market.

      If not, then the only way to use new Stickers is to purchase them.

        the stickers i’m referring to are the original stickers that Viber put up. were those supposed to go away giving me only the option to buy some… I really liked those stickers

    I downloaded Xmas stickers but now I can’t get rid of them. I’ve downloaded a new set but they don’t show up cos I’ve too many already downloaded. How do I delete stickers I don’t want?

      Hi AC!

      Unfortunately, Viber doesn’t have the ability to delete stickers yet, but I’ll definitely post an article on TruTower as soon as the time frame for this feature is discovered! Stay tuned!
