After being launched in December of 2010 on iPhone to be a direct competition of Skype, Viber soon expanded on other platforms, including a dedicated PC client app that anyone can download, install and use for free. In addition to those two platforms, Viber also serves users of Mac OS, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Bada, Linux and Windows Phone operating systems.
Interface of Vibber mostly resembles that of PC Skype client, with tools and friendlist being placed on the left side of the screen, and the rest of the dashboard being left for video call window, text stream, and box for manual tying of text messages. This very simple approach, deigned with very modern looking layout and color scheme enables users of all knowledge levels to instantly get acquainted to all possibilities that this program opens. Calling, texting, and video chat is just a click away.
Viber is a popular free Voice-over IP messaging service and Skype alternative, that can be used on your smartphone or PC. The Viber PC client takes the convenience of the mobile app and brings it to your PC so you can stay connected even when you don’t have your mobile phone. It also makes it easier to get on with work and multitask while communicating with your contacts.
Viber competes with Whatsapp for the title of the most popular cross platform/cross device messaging service globally. A key difference between Viber/Whatsapp and Skype is that you can communicate with all of your mobile phone contacts that are also using the service – not just your skype contacts. Voice call, chat, send SMS, pictures and videos for free to any of your phone contacts who also have the app installed. You can even video call with up to 100 of your contacts at the same time! A simple UI tops off the package nicely. The likes of Viber and Whatsapp have pretty much killed the traditional mobile SMS industry, thanks to their ease of use and ever improving data coverage.
