Viber launches video calling and desktop apps for Windows and Mac

 

The company has launched the new Viber Desktop for PC and Mac, a desktop version of the original iPhone service which integrates with existing mobile app versions.

Viber Desktop comes with the same basic and simple setup process that allows members to use their phone number as their user ID. With a single click, desktop users can now transfer calls between Viber Desktop and mobile apps. They can choose to sync received and sent messages on both devices. Users can also view and delete conversations on either desktop or mobile phones.

Viber also unveils video call options for the first time. As of now, the new beta features allows users to make desktop to desktop video calls. The company will likely launch the same feature for mobile phones in the future.

In the past Viber has prioritized making its service available on as many mobile platforms as possible. The new updates signal Viber’s expansion to other platforms in order to accommodate its growing user base. As of present, Viber reportedly has a 200 million users from 193 countries around the world.

Viber has also announced it will launch Viber 3.0 soon, which will feature major updates to both Android and iOS versions. The company is also developing a new Blackberry app that will enable voice calling and compatibility with Viber Desktop.
