WP8 Windows Phone 8, Viber for Windows Phone 8, Viber Messaging VoIP

It’s no secret that Viber for Windows Phone 8 is one of the most highly anticipated pieces of software that is not yet available to the masses, but we won’t have too much longer to wait; Viber CEO Talmon Marco has confirmed to TruTower that the application has been submitted to the Windows Phone Store and is now awaiting publication, a process that Microsoft estimates (without certification, which may not be necessary since Viber messaging is already available in the store) to take 24 hours.

Many users have been waiting a long time for the application, and it’s great to see it finally completed and in the process of being unleashed.

We have been able to confirm via an earlier article post that stickers will not be among the features available in the first release of the new app, but Viber has revealed that group calling will indeed be available from day one. Voice service itself is a big plus for Windows Phone 8 users, many of whom have been stuck with messaging only since the app was released for WP8 last year.

Needless to say, we’re ready for our WP8 version of Viber VoIP!
