How It Works

When you download Viber, it asks for your phone number and sends you a message with confirmation code. On iPhone it will be probably automatically extracted from the incoming SMS; if this number is active on another device, you’ll have to enter it manually. Then it automatically scans your phone book and generates its contact list, in the manner similar to WhatsApp.

Then you can start messaging, voice and video calling. Within Viber all these types of communication are free. Viber also can make calls to regular cellular or landline phone numbers, but that’s the paid part of its services. Anyway, Viber rates are lower than those of traditional phone services.

Like any today’s messenger, Viber offers end-to-end encryption of your messaging and calls. It supports chats and public groups. You can attach pictures, videos, locations or documents to messages. But all this isn’t automatically stored on Viber clouds, though you can manually program its automatic syncing to the cloud.

One of the most attractive features Viber offers is large selection of stickers, emoji and GIFs made exclusively for this messenger. Some of them are free, others are paid. There are too many of them to list in this Viber review. You can also get them as rewards if you encourage new users to communicate more.

Viber Worldwide

As great for international communication as it gets, Viber is not equally popular over the world. Maybe you’ll find too few of your friends listed to download Viber for constant usage. It depends on the country you live in. Extremely popular in Eastern Europe and some regions of Africa and Asia, Viber is surpassed by WhatsApp and Facebook in most countries, especially English-speaking ones.
