Viber 5.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

Viber, the once promising VoIP service, on Thursday introduced video calling across its mobile apps for the iOS and Android platforms.

Now available in the App Store as a free download, the new Viber 5.0 lets you place or receive video calls over Wi-Fi and cellular networks to your Viber contacts who use the service on their smartphones or desktop.

This release also includes enhancements to stickers, improvements for adding friends, better media forwarding and more.

In addition to video calling, the new Viber also lets you forward photo and video messages to a contact, add contacts to your list by either scanning their QR code or entering their Viber number and reorder or turn sticker packs on and off.

Viber 5.0 changelog:

  • Make video calls from your phone to other Viber contacts on mobile or Desktop. You can also transfer video calls between mobile and Desktop!
  • Add friends easily by entering their Viber number or scanning their QR code
  • Manage sticker packs – turn packs on/off and reorder packs
  • Easily forward photo and video messages

The 44.6-megabyte app requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later.

      Hi David ,
      Offtopic : I downloaded the iOS 8 gm and installed it on my iPhone 4s.. How will I be able to install a public version? Will I have to set it as new or I can restore from my backup? Or shall i revert back to iOS 7.1.2 a day before its launch?
      Ps: I dont have an developer account. :p

        Yes David is right, you will have to restore using iTunes to public iOS 8.0 ! and u can then restore the backup from the revios GM data.. and i want you to set up as new! as it gives the perfect battery performance what the iOS should.. and how much can . iOS give.. but if you restore the data from backup ,,it gives u the same battery as it was on the previous iOS which data u used on new ios.. 🙂 its my experience.. idk about what is true!
