Viber has got a notable update today on the Android and iOS platforms however Windows Phone has been left out in which the app still lags behind in general and performance so when it will get updated is anyone’s guess and nothing new for Windows Phone in General when it comes to updates with official apps.The update also brings more payment options to the app, making it even easier to purchase credit for using the app..

Other changes included in the app is animated stickers which seems to be quite a joy to hear for some,age dependent this is fine but as a user I find them annoying at times but that’s just my opinion..

  • Increased sharing functions: Users can now share phonebook contact details as a Viber message. Recipients can save the contact info directly to their phone’s contact list through the app.
  • Rich links: When a user shares a URL, Viber will automatically create a message bubble with a thumbnail image from the site they are sharing.
  • Easier video calling: Users can now initiate a video call directly from their contact’s profile or from their recent calls list.
  • Animated stickers: With over 500 sticker packs to choose from, Viber just made its library of stickers better with the ability to send live motion stickers through chat.
