With Viber for Windows you can call, chat, and send SMS for free to friends who have the mobile app installed on their smartphone. It also supports video calls and it's really easy to use.
Phone free from your PC
Phone calls for free? With Viber it's no problem. The app works easily via VoIP from your computer.
First of all, you must already have Viber installed on your smartphone (available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone). After that, install the client on your PC: you'll find all the contacts in your address book have automatically been synchronized.
The convenience of Viber for PC is that there's nothing to configure; from the moment you install it you can immediately begin calling at zero cost (via VoIP) all your friends who use the app for smartphones. Not only that, but by using the function Viber Out you can also even call landlines and mobiles.
Viber for Windows also supports video calls, even group ones with up to 100 participants.
The application also allows you to send and receive text messages from your friends (with stickers and emoticons included!) and it supports group conversations. The chat is synchronized between your device and your PC.
All just a click away
The Viber interface is really easy to use. You can view the list of contacts, call log and chat history with no trouble.
From the options menu you can configure the app so that it shows real-time notifications of new messages in the Windows system tray.
In addition, you can set the program to start automatically with Windows.
Viber & VoIP: a winning combo
If you already use Viber for smartphones, you really must install this version for Windows on your computer. And if you've never used Viber then maybe now's the time to start!
Call quality is excellent, but much depends on the quality of the connection used. During our test from PC to smartphone, however, we found no problems whatsoever.
Thanks to this app that resets the cost of calls, you can chat with your friends (and the messages are synchronized between PC and phone) and see them in video conferencing. Without spending a dime and without moving from your PC. Fantastic!
