Viber For Windows 10 Unveiled; Will Be Available By Year End

Viber app which offers free messaging, HD-quality phone and video calls, has unveiled a new version of its app today at Microsoft Build in San Francisco. Viber’s new design is fully optimized for Windows 10’s responsive OS, creating a well-integrated product that blends seamlessly into the user experience of Windows 10.


The app will work smoothly across PC, tablet and mobile, resizing and adapting the on-screen content to optimize the experience even as the window size changes. Integration with Live Tiles enables users to pin Viber, or a specific chat, to the start menu allowing them to see notifications from Viber even before opening the app, and through actionable notifications Viber users can respond to a message immediately without exiting their current task.

During the keynote presentation, a demonstration showed how Cortana voice commands could be used to send Viber messages and to start chatting with contacts quickly. Attendees were also shown deep integration of Viber contact card data within the platform, allowing users to send messages and make voice and video calls via Viber more easily.

“We’re really excited about Windows 10 and the opportunities it offers to developers,” said Michael Shmilov, Viber’s COO. “The Universal Windows Platform has allowed us to create a unique version of Viber that lets users switch to the device that suits them at any given moment and stay in complete sync, without compromising their experience. Beyond that, the integration with Live Tiles and Cortana, plus the social extensibility that Windows 10 offers will enhance the way people communicate with Viber. We will keep working closely with Microsoft in order to ensure the best possible experience for Viber users on Windows 10.”

Viber for Windows 10 will be available later this year.
