Viber, one of the world’s leading messaging platforms, is making its app sleeker and more secure than ever. Viber 10, the latest update, includes a bunch of new features designed with ease and privacy in mind.
One of the things Viber users will notice first is its brand-new design, which allows for simple navigation, easy access, and a singular calls screen. It’s a fresh new layout that makes your messages look less cluttered and cleaner than ever. Users can also customize their chat experiences and get all private and group chats, Communities, chatbots, and favorite public content in one main chat list. In the updated “calls” screen, users can find their most recent calls, access phone book contacts and manage their Viber Out subscriptions.
“At Viber, we are all driven by our core mission to make our product faster, simpler, and safer. The new Viber 10 lets people connect easily and intuitively, while as always ensures users’ privacy and data protection. We hope our users will enjoy these changes as much as we do—it’s a whole new Viber!” says Djamel Agaoua, CEO of Viber.
Along with these design fixes, two newly added features — the hidden-number chats and Viber group calls — highlight Viber’s value as an efficient and private communication app. The hidden-number chats feature in Viber Communities allow users to engage and message with one another without having to exchange phone numbers. This allows spontaneous and casual interactions with the new people users meet through Communities, while ensuring they remain safe. The Viber Group Calls feature enables up to five users to make a group voice call by adding people to an existing call or by starting one right from an existing group chat. This feature will initially roll out for voice calls, followed by video at a later date.
With its fresh design and boosted performance, Viber 10 continues the company’s commitment to 100% user data privacy, with full end-to-end encryption set by default on all private conversations, group chats, and calls. The latest version will be available for its users worldwide on the App Store and Google Play Store.
