Review

Viber is a communication tool that allows you to send text messages and perform video calls with other users. One of the main issues of Viber is that you will need to create an account on its service. In order to do that, you will need to install the mobile app on your smartphone, which is completely for free.

Once you download the installer and get in into your PC, you will be asked for an activation code, synchronizing your own mobile phone number to your desktop application. You can use both programs simultaneously without any kind of problem. The content of Viber is exactly the same on both versions, so you will be able to use it in your computer just like on your smartphone.

You will be able to use it in your computer just like in your smartphone

This Viber PC client imports the contact list you have on your smartphone, so you won’t need to copy any phone numbers. This way, the user can use it immediately after the installation. Since it is a simple application, the configuration is made automatically, without any user intervention. It is designed for being used by everyone, so the interface is pretty intuitive. You will find the main functions on the left bar, which includes the contact list, recent text messages activity, and an additional function for making calls through VoIP protocol.

Uses of the software

To make use of the Viber PC client, it is not completely necessary for it to be installed on other users’ mobile phones—you can make calls to non-Viber users from your PC, but this service is not free. This function, since it works with our Internet connection, provides high sound quality, but it mostly depends on your connection’s speed. You can use it also to hold video conferences from your computer with other devices connected through 3G or Wi-Fi.

The funny part of Viber is the stickers the application includes. Thanks to these, the expressions of simple emoticons have been enhanced with more attractive images. If you really like to customize your own text messages, you can download additional stickers from your smartphone, and the application syncs the new content.

However, despite the good performance of the Viber PC version, we find it not as complete as we would like. This PC application depends heavily on the app for smartphone: you can’t add new contacts or new stickers without using the mobile software. In this sense, if you don’t use Viber too much on your mobile system, you won’t use it in this desktop version either. Anyway, the main functions are kept the same way and even file sharing and voice transfer is somewhat better than in its original mobile app.

USER REVIEWS

THIS IS A GREAT APPLICATION THAT HELPS YOU STAY CONNECTED TO YOUR FRIENDS

By Hande Njr

We live in an era of social media where communication is key. In the world of today there are many applications that one can use to stay connected.Viber is one of them, it is a product of Viber Media Inc. It is available on various platforms thus; android, iOS, BlackBerry OS, Windows and Mac OS.I use this application on a daily basis and I would say I like its emo icons which come in form of stickers. I use a lot of chat software’s with emo icons but I honestly think there is any other doing it very well as viber is doing it currently. Another great thing they offer is the free calls on the voIP protocol the clarity of calls is amazing but you have to have a steady internet connection to enjoy this feature well. You can also do high definition video conferences from your pc to any device that is supported. Besides that the normal chatting features just like on other chat apps are present, like sending messages, chatting among others. You can easily change or upload your profile picture you can share things like photos on other social media sites like Facebook and twitter. It is generally a good application.

Pros

  • It has a simple interface.
  • It has great stickers that makes communicating fun.

Cons

  • It only works well with a good internet connection.

COMMUNICATE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS USING THE INTERESTING VIBER APPLICATION

By Dann Kamau

On Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Generally having used other messaging platforms I’ve used viber and always liked since it does more than only sending a short massage’s. Viber helps me even to send picture messages that are quite suggestive in a way an easy to understand. You can also exchange videos and audio messages from Viber and it is a very fast communication tool to use.

With Viber you will be able to make calls as long as your friend on the other side is internet enabled on their device. It supports devices like Android, Blackberry, Symbian phones, windows phone and Microsoft windows among others. To have Viber in your device you have to first install it in your device and in order to use it you should be internet enabled to communicate with others on Viber. It also supports group messages where you can communicate as a group. Another good thing about Viber is that you won’t need to save you contacts one by one; it will automatically sync contacts from your phone book.

For sure it is a convenient application I don’t also need to have a password to access it once you register your number your good to go. If you have 3G internet or wifi you should not be worried on how you will communicate with friends and family. It will be easy and funny even when you use funny emoticons

Pros

  • You don’t require to have a password
  • It is free to use as long as you are internet enabled.

Cons

  • When making a call to a non user it will incur some charges.

THUMBS UP FOR THE REVOLUTION IN TECHNOLOGY, ITS AMAZING..LETS MOVE PEOPLE TRY VIBER 4.0.2.30

By Angel Mas

On Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Tech masters have no intentions of letting people stay off reach or rather unreachable to family, friends or even colleagues. Through applications like viber people can keep in touch and keep up to date with what friends are up to. Viber is one very interesting application which users use to relay messages and even video calls all for free to any other user who is registered with viber. And unlike in other applications where a user is required to have an account and a password, viber only requires users to have a phone number to be connected.

To add on to this application or rather to make it more better and interesting there was introduced viber for PC where users can place call and messages for free to another user using any other device whose location is anywhere around the globe. Viber also synchronizes users contacts such that they dont have to save them.

Pros

  • requires no password to access
  • it synchronizes user contacts between the PC and a phone

Cons

  • A call to a non user is at a fee
