Viber Review - You've Got a Message Review
Viber is a mobile instant-messenger, which ranks #2 after WhatsApp. It can provide you with free audio & video calls, instant messaging, international phone calls, packs of stickers and emojis. It's pretty secure and also enables you to launch group calls. Download Viber if you value quick and enjoyable communication.
Viber specializes in free unlimited messages and audio/video calls. That is of course if you have ample of traffic on your mobile gizmo or a Wi-Fi nearby. The conversation quality always strives to be decent, although audio-calls in Viber are much clearer than its video convos.
If you need to have an urgent family meeting at distance or want to discuss something with your colleagues, collaborators or clan members, there's a group conference feature present in the app:
- Launch it;
- Swipe left to open the chats;
- Select "Group Conversation";
- Pick the contacts you want to be present;
- Tap done;
- And discuss whatever important biz you have!
Considering you have a good, reliable connection, Viber can be your "get-away ticket" from the paid SMS and phone calls. If all of your family members/friends have it installed too.
Additionally, you can use business-chats supported by companies and your favorite brands. Through them, you can be updated on your internet purchase status, delivery time, payment details and contact the client support. In public channels, you can read news on whatever topic you like: sports, politics, finances etc. As a dinky bonus, you get to enjoy a few sticker packs for free - one of them is Freddie the Fox.
Viber has a calm white-n-blueberry color palette, but the interface is a bit cluttered. Especially the chat section will take you time to get adapted. Plus it has a few responsiveness issues: the tabs may swipe with stutter and lag, also causing mistapping.
Viber is a solid B-grade student. It can provide you with news for free if you add the channels. It supports various media formats to be shared with your friends: JPEG, MP3, WEBM, etc. It has a collections of emojis, stickers and GIFs, which you can use to accent your mood. Plus the voice messages, free texting, calls and group conversations make it a reliable tool for staying in touch.
Cross-platform use 5/5
Viber is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Kindle devices. Our Viber review reminds that you can have a desktop version of it too. Simply download Viber for Windows/MacOS and then use your phone to scan the QR code that will appear.
The app is free to download and use. But it has purchasable extra-sticker packs. Plus you can have money on the app's balance to make phone calls, in case your connection fails. It's especially handy if you call people overseas a lot.
The Bottom Line
This messenger is a solid communication app with a huge fanbase: 500+ million active users. That means at least some of your friends are already using it. It has good call quality, file-sharing and news channels ready to keep you updated. Not to forget cute emojis: Olaf the Snowman, La-la-lamas, etc.
