Viber is an instant messaging and voice over IP application that lets you communicate with other Viber users free of charge. With this tool, you can send messages, exchange files, and make voice and video calls with the support of Wi-Fi connections.

To activate Viber on your desktop, you need to have it already installed on your mobile phone. Therefore, the program will be able to sync with your mobile contacts list and determine automatically the contacts that use Viber as a communication tool. The tool comes with a convenient search engine that lets you find the desired contact with ease, without needing to browse long lists manually. In addition, you can configure a list of favorite contacts you communicate with most often. If messaging and calls between Viber users are completely free, communicating with non-Viber users requires buying credits. The payment instructions can be accessed from within the app, so you can call landline and mobile phones at any moment, regardless of the interlocutor's location. Text messages support emoticons and animated stickers for a playful messaging experience. The app has the ability to preserve the history of text conversations, and you can also record your calls and listen to the conversation once again at a later time.

To sum up, Viber is a versatile communication tool that helps you stay in touch with friends and family, anytime, and anywhere. You can communicate conveniently with other people living close-by or abroad via a 3G or a Wi-Fi connection. In addition, you can join public chats to follow brands and celebrities.
