Viber has just released a new version of its VoIP and messaging app for desktop PCs and Macs called Viber Desktop. Viber for Windows and Mac lets you send free messages and make free calls to other Viber users “on any device and network” and from anywhere in the world.
The app can be downloaded directly from Viber’s website and should sync flawlessly with your mobile account so your contacts, messages and call history will transfer over and you can start chatting and calling immediately from your PC or Mac device.
Other features of the new desktop app include:
- Best-quality HD voice calls
- Video calls
- Free text and photo messages
- Group conversations
- No registration, passwords or invitations required
- Contacts and messages sync between your mobile and Windows
- Transfer ongoing calls between devices
In addition, the company also released a new version of its mobile app for both Android and iOS devices. The update is a major one, bringing video messages into the fray as well as online status, “last online” feature that shows how long your contact has been offline, brand new stickers, improved UI with an “enhanced photo experience,” and more.
The app for Android was also designed with Google’s new Holo look in mind, bringing it up to par with many other apps on the OS. Accessibility is now available on iOS as well.
Finally, the new version supports Swedish, Turkish, Korean and Dutch, and many more languages and features a host of major performance improvements.
Viber also reached 200 million users, growing from 175 million users as of February 26.
