Viber Updates its Android and iOS Apps with Better Video Calling, Animated Stickers

Viber has announced an update to its messaging app on Android and iOS, with a number of interface improvements and better voice call quality being promised.


Viber said that about 250 million video calls are made on its platform each month and to make these calls easier, the app has redesigned its video calling interface which is more intuitive. Users can now initiate a video call directly from their contact’s profile, or from their recent calls list. Viber has improved voice and video call quality to keep a tab on data usage which automatically adapts to the network quality of the user.

Viber has added animated stickers to its mobile apps. Users can choose from more than 500 sticker packs, they can now share contacts from their phonebook as a Viber message. Recipients will receive the contact info, including name and photo, with an option to easily save them to their contacts. Moreover, a shared URL in the chat will now automatically create a message bubble with an image from the site they are sharing.

Other improvements have also been made to the tablet incarnations of the Viber app, with the Android tablet UI being graced with an improved, better designed call screen, and the iPad version allowing users to sync Viber across their tablet, iPhone and Mac computer. The latter means users can seamlessly carry on conversations across all their Apple devices.

Ofir Eyal, Head of Product, Viber, commented: “We’ve been listening to feedback and it’s clear that our users enjoy Viber for more than just text messaging. This update makes it easier for people to share richer content within their messages. With improvements to our voice call quality and our video calls interface, plus fun features like animated stickers, we are growing and maintaining a strong global user base by increasing engagement within the app.”
