Viber Android app updated with easier video calling, rich links, lower data usage & more

Viber has updated its Android app to add a range of improvements based on user requests, says the company. Version 5.5 allows you to start a video call directly from your recent calls list, rich links now display content previews when links are posted into text chats – and Viber says more efficient data compression has allowed it to improve the quality of both audio and video calls while reducing data usage.

Users can also now share contacts within both one-to-one and group chats, and invite an entire group to follow a public chat.

Viber is a free download from Google Play.

Viber aiming to be the new Skype as it adds video calls to its Android & iOS apps

Skype has long been a popular way to make free video calls to your friends and family from your Android device, but Viber is now joining the party. While video calling has been available on the desktop version of Viber for some time, the mobile app had previously been limited to voice, text and photo messages.

With Viber, everyone in the world can connect. Freely. More than 400 million Viber users text, call, and send photo and video messages worldwide over WiFi or 3G – for free […]

Make video calls from your phone to other Viber contacts on mobile or Desktop. You can also transfer video calls between mobile and Desktop!

The USP of Viber is that no username is needed – only your mobile number. When a contact joins Viber, the service spots that their number is in your contacts app and sends you an alert to let you know.

Viber is a free download from the Google Play store. Voice and video calls between Viber users are free (bar any data charges on LTE/3G). The company makes its money by selling stickers and – like Skype – by offering low-cost outgoing calls worldwide.

VoIP app Viber announces Viber Out, allowing cheap outgoing calls to any number worldwide

Viber, the popular cross-platform VoIP app, released Viber 4.1 for Android today. The new app introduces a new calling feature called Viber Out. This service allows users on any supported Viber platform to place outgoing calls to any landline or mobile number in the world at rates lower than many other similar offerings.

Viber Out also allows users to use their real phone number as their caller ID, meaning the party on the other end will see your number as if the call was coming from the users phone, so there’s no need for your contacts to save a new VoIP number in order to recognize you.

Viber 4.1 is rolling out for Android now on the Google Play Store.
