Viber Update is Now Available with Faster Software Performances


Viber is one of the world’s first apps to offer VoIP features and thanks to that, Viber is now being used by millions of people from all over the world. Considering the fact that Viber has such a massive userbase, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the developers are constantly rolling out new updates that introduce improvements and bug fixes. In fact, a new update that sports the version number is now rolling out via over the air channels.

Viber Update

If you enjoy using Viber to keep in touch with your family members and friends, then you should make sure to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. The reason why we are saying that is because, as previously mentioned, the latest update is available to download via over the air channels. With that said, let’s check out what are the improvements that the new update brings.

Software Improvements

The latest update for Viber focuses on improving the overall software performances that the chatting app has to offer. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that the new update introduces a bundle of bug fixes that are tackling various issues which sometimes caused the app to lag. Fortunately, this is not going to happen anymore.

We also want to highlight the fact that the update can be manually downloaded and installed in order to avoid having to wait for it to arrive via over the air channels. This is possible by downloading the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). This is a special type of update that is compatible only with Android-powered smartphones that have enabled the “Unknown Sources” option.

Chat and Call with 100% Privacy
Thanks to end-to-end encryption, any type of information you share on Viber will always remain between yourself and the person you’re talking to. Any message you send makes its way from your device to the recipient’s in the form of an encrypted code that only their device can translate to plain text using an encryption key. Encryption keys exist only on user devices and nowhere else. So, no one — not even Viber — can read your messages.

Self-Destruct Your Secret Chats
