Viber was released for iPhone back in December 2010 and as positioned to be direct competition to Skype. In May 2011, its developer launched a prerelease version of the app for Android, where only 50.000 users were able to access it. Finally, in July 2012, an unrestricted version was released. Shortly after, the application reached 90 million users and forced the company to add two new features to the iOS and Android versions of the app: group messaging services and HD Voice.

In September 2012, HD-quality phone calls and group messaging were added to the Windows Phone version of the application but only for Nokia users, due to Viber’s exclusive partnership with the company. However, Voice Calling feature was added to all Windows Phone 8 devices in April 2013.

Today, the Viber application is available for desktops (Windows, Mac and Linux), Windows 10/Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8, Android and iOS. In fact, the application was also released as a Universal Windows Platform app for Windows 10 devices. The recently released new version 6.1 of Viber released for Windows 10 devices brings Video Calling support.

Currently, Viber has over 700 million users worldwide and the application keeps growing. Thanks to this new feature, we are sure that more Windows 10 users will try it out.
