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

Viber for iOS and Android received an update this morning that brought a number of key features to the VoIP and IM app including video messages, status features, and an improved UI.

Many users have been wondering when stickers as well as the 3.0 features will be coming to Windows Phone 8, and we were able to get at least a time frame nailed down for the feature additions.

Viber CEO Talmon Marco told us “most of the features of 3.0 should be on WP in the next 3 months. Hopefully sooner.” We don’t know exactly what he meant by “most” but we can assume he meant everything except the Holo UI that’s apparent on the Android version. After all, Windows Phone has its own Metro UI to make the application look smooth and attractive.

Of course, we won’t know for sure until the date gets closer. Still it’s good to know that WP8 users could be using these new features by August, if not before. Hopefully before.
