Viber launched back in 2012 and it was one of the world’s first apps to introduce VoIP (voice over internet protocol) features. Thanks to this, Viber’s popularity skyrocketed because the only thing that users need in order to get in touch with their friends and family members is an internet connection. Now, Viber is more popular than ever and it boasts an even wider array of features.
Viber Messenger 188.8.131.52 Update
The reason why Viber is making headlines on our website today is because it has just received a new update. The chatting app is always improving through new updates and a brand-new one is available to download via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, all Viber users who have access to a stable Wi-Fi network are eligible to download the update right away.
As previously noted, Viber’s developers are using the constant stream of updates as an opportunity to take the app’s performances to the next level. With that said, it should come as no surprise to find out that the update introduces a bundle of bug fixes and software tweaks. That’s not all. The update also comes with new features. Check them out below:
- Control who can add you to groups—everyone or saved contacts only. Go to More > Settings > Privacy
- Say goodbye to clutter as you sort media by type in every chat in the new media gallery.
- Create your own GIF! In any chat, record a short video with our new camera or choose a video from your gallery – and turn it into a legendary looping GIF

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 recipients 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
Start a Secret Chat which will let you set a self-destruct timer for every message in your conversation so that after your message is read, it’s automatically deleted from your recipient’s phone. Viber is safe! We support encrypted messaging to make sure your data is private.
