Skype and other desktop calling apps have a new competition as the Viber app is now available for Windows and Mac PCs. Viber is a cross platform VoIP app that’s very popular on mobile devices where it first started. Now Viber has made its way to desktops.
Viber for desktops lets users send free messages, make free calls to other Viber users, make video calls and start group conversations on any device and network in any country. As long as Viber is on a device, it can be used to make and receive messages and calls, for free.
With Viber, all you need is a mobile phone number since it acts as your user ID. Viber will sync contacts, messages and call history with your mobile device. You can even transfer ongoing calls between devices.
To start using Viber for Windows and Mac, all you need to do is download Viber and enter your phone number. The mobile version was recently updated to Version 3.0 where enhancements like video messages, enhanced photo support, new voice engine, and support for some 20 languages are included.
Here’s a video featuring Viber for Windows and Mac.
