After debuting on Windows 10 Mobile, Viber’s official Windows 10 beta app is now finally available to PC users. If you want to test the new Viber app on your Windows 10 PC, you just need to download it from the Store, and it will work not just on your computer, but across all Windows 10-powered devices.

After finishing development of the app, Viber started the beta phase, by sending invites to testers. Soon after, all invites were sent, and all seats were taken, so the new Viber UWP app was finally released. As we said, the app was originally released on Windows 10 Mobile, where users had an opportunity to test it.

With the release of Viber beta for Windows 10 PCs, users will now be available to sync their data between devices, something that hasn’t been available in the previous version of the Viber app, developed for Windows Phone 8.1.

Speaking of the old Viber app for Windows Phone 8.1, the company decided to shut it down on Windows 10 completely, and build a brand new app instead. Reason for that was building a Universal app, which will give users the best possible integration between all connected devices. Something that wasn’t achievable with the previous app.


The new version of Viber for Windows 10 also brings some useful features, access to public chats, end-to-end encryption, People app integration, and the ability to invite up to 200 people into a single chat group.

If you want to try the new beta version of Viber for Windows 10 on your PC, you can download the app from the Store, for free.

Let us know about your experiences about using the app, if you downloaded it already. Is it stable enough? What do you think about the design, functionality? Tell us in the comments.
