Viber finally comes to BlackBerry 10

Viber finally comes to BlackBerry 10

Update: Viber is now available in BlackBerry World. Link is at the bottom of this article. Please note that since it has just gone live it is still making its way through the BlackBerry World servers. It may show as unavailable for some or it may give you an unable to purchase error. Just check back later if this shows for you. Also, note that it is an Android port.

It has been a long time coming but Viber is finally coming to BlackBerry 10. Viber had been going back and forth with their decision to bring their app to BlackBerry 10 over the past year, leaving users to sideload the app or look for alternatives. Back in March 2013 they had announced they were working on an app and would bring voice support when they launched on BlackBerry 10. After months of waiting, they then announced they would no longer be bringing Viber to BlackBerry 10 in October 2013. Changing their minds again, in March 2014, they responded to a tweet saying they would be bringing Viber to BlackBerry 10.

The wait is now over for those still using Viber. It will be available in BlackBerry World really soon. No word yet on whether it is an Android port or native app. Viber CEO, Talmon Marco did have this to say about the BlackBerry 10 version though.

"Our BlackBerry 10 app is a beautiful twist on our design delivering the most up to date experience for our users."

BlackBerry 10 Viber features include:

  • Text with your friends in one-on-one and group conversations
  • Make free calls with HD sound quality
  • Share photos, videos, voice messages, locations, stickers and emoticons
  • Push notifications guarantee that you never miss a message or call, even when Viber is off
  • Support for the Viber Desktop application on Windows and Mac
  • Translated into 34 languages
  • Viber Out
  • Viber Sticker Market

At this moment it is only available for the BlackBerry Z30, Z10 and upcoming Z3. Q-devices will have to wait. No time frame has been given on availability at this time.

It definitely is for those who were asking for it for some time. Even though I don't use it a lot of ppl that I know do so maybe I ll give it try.

I would not be interested in another chatting platform, plus found this at Cnet dot com
Viber sends video, images without encryption protection. Researchers demonstrate that a widely used mobile chat app not only sends some kinds of data in the open, it also stores it publicly online.

moriba73

How can anyone in this world not use Viber? Hello! Don't you call people? I think this is an awesome news and long overdue. I have been using the android version for quite some time and it messes up my address book.

Thats what skype is for haha lolol

Thesmartmale

That's why we have voice calls on BBM hello? Were you in a cave through out the last year?

Posted via CB10

kunamvahees

We were not in caves, but you were.
Viber has voice long before BBM got voice and its working fine.
Even Android Viber works fine on my BB.

BBMIZKING

The voice calling to phones isn't even free. You gotta buy credit. Deleted the Android version after dropping the only friend who I knew wanted to use it.

http://support.viber.com/customer/portal/articles/1258784-what-is-viber-...

kunamvahees

Why are you complaining about Viber Out feature?
You cant call phones from BBM voice even if you pay.

I dont think I understand your comment.

BBMIZKING

Cause its not free. And there are other messenger options that have that feature as being free. In my opinion, if you don't have messaging client triple play (text voice and video), I wouldn't consider it. And exchanging video files is not video chat. So no, I don't see the usefulness of Viber. But there are many who do and that's fine too.

mnc76

What messenger has free messenger->landline calls??

TrueKulcha

Exactly. Viper does nothing that BBM can't do in terms of voice calling so in my opinion they are late to the BB10 dance. When they can do video calling then these supporters can open their mouths just a bit but for now is either put up or shut up time.

Posted via CB10

niss63

Yeah, caves. That's where we were. I downloaded Viber on my 9900, only to find out that precisely one person out of my 1100 contacts had an account.

So no, I haven't missed Viber.

It was a evil strategy by viber! I believe Viber will kill BBM soon and BlackBerry owners will left BBM.

mohammadn

And security of BlackBerry os 10 will decrease because viber will access to our contact numbers

Posted via CB10

RubberChicken76

By that logic, "everything else" like WhatsApp, Facebook, WeChat and the like should have caused insecurity and mass exodus because they all access contacts too.

It's depends what you put on your 'Berry.

I've never used or seen Viber. I guess most people that "call" folks actually dial the numbers instead of having to worry about both parties having some third-party app installed. Just a thought.

Blomsternisse

Why is BBM the best? It cannot receive calls on iOS unless the app I opened and active, the images sent are small and in low quality, one has to request higher quality images, it only supports landscape mode on BlackBerry's own platforms, etc.

TheStoryUp

Many people have data limits and don't like sending/receiving 1-2MB pictures. I personally think it's a great feature.

Zed30

rbrar03

iOS suspends apps when they are not open. IPhones have tiny batteries and active apps will kill a battery quick. Leave the app open, don't quit BBM. Also ensure you have push enabled for BBM in permissions.

its so multi platform that you cant even use it on windows phone and it doesnt have ANY desktop clients, viber has linux, windows and mac. also you cant hide the action bar on the q10 and it takes up A LOT of space and also for most of the ppl its a pain to add everyone pin by pin

Eitot

But it’s not there yet. Neither is the experience on iOS or Android all that great, I’ve heard it’s pretty unreliable even when you rely on push notifications.

Give Viber some credit. They provide an almost platform-agnostic communications app that not only works pretty well on all of them, but is also more comprehensive than Whatsapp, the latter being the most popular one. They chose to support BlackBerry 10, which is good for the platform. The same can be said about Whatsapp, which has been a reliable messaging app for me.

Personally, I am getting tired of this BBM excuse. I have not a single friend who owns a BlackBerry device and I won’t ask any of my friends to download and register with BBM just to be able to chat with me, when more straightforward solutions like Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook Messenger and others exist. If BlackBerry wants BBM to become popular, it has a lot of work to do to be on par with their competitors. Just look at Telegram, it’s popularity has grown rapidly after the takeover of Whatsapp by Facebook. Many of my friends switched within a couple of weeks. This was BlackBerry’s opportunity, they’ve missed their chance yet again.

arvind1983

Viber has excellent desktop client and most of my friends are on it because of the ease of use with phone numbers.

Digital_Ads

Even with it being cross platform, no one uses BBM

Posted via CB10

arvind1983

That is true. BBM may be secured but normal people find it a hassle to register using email id, and finding friends are still a problem. I may have to finally agree that using phone numbers are much better than PIN, but adding contact should be based on request.

I know one person who uses Viber but I appreciate the option to use it. Sweet :-)

Not sure why Bbm is hard to add people. Just add them via email address, or PIN. It is good to have to accept people and better yet not distributing your phone number.....unless you like soliciting phone calls directly to your cell phone. Good luck with that.

Don't use it, never have but I'm willing to give it a look. I'm still die hard BBM forever but if this is another feather in the cap to showcase that BB10 is a viable option for app developers then I'm with it 100%.

I'm glad that another big name app is on the roster. I'm not glad that it's already more fully featured than BBM. I don't use Viber, but I'm sure this is great news to people that do!

Good. I hope it will have better integration than whatsapp.

This quote speaks volumes about the capabilities of the BB10 OS. BlackBerry should ask Viber to participate in a case study that speaks to other developers about the superior capabilities that BB10 offers:

"Our BlackBerry 10 app is a beautiful twist on our design delivering the most up to date experience for our users."

If it is not native, there is no point to download it through the App World, because the updates of the not native apps (like Skype or Flipboard) are more regular from the Google Play Store than the App World... They've just released a reworked UI version for iOS, so hope to see it soon for Android as well...

sideloaded version crashes on q10 upon opening settings or profile page of a contact

m3tr0n0m3

Im on Z10 and it works well, but its kinda laggy, not as smooth as the native ones (WhatsApp, BBM). I'll give it a try when it comes out... Who knows, miracles happen :)

Mack Gans

Exactly why I'm waiting for BBWorld version, so calling and all features will work.

Graheem

So Viber still actually is NOT AVAILABLE. Strange way to title article about this app with such a flip flop history of coming/not coming.

Come on 10.3!

Playbook007

Well that about completes the app gap......no that probably gives us more apps now than Apple.....oh wait we already could use Viber via android sandbox. OK......who cares. I don't care if it's BlackBerry native, an android port or android direct. As long as they work.

I told one of my friends about BB10 about a year ago and he asked me if it has Viper and our conversation ended there. Now I can start long overdue conversation again.

I am sure He doesn't have Viper as well

I do use it ma afraid. So the sooner the better. The voice call quality on BBM is not good when you call Android BBM users. I have to say that everything seems to work well on the iphone!!! I have had the iphone 5 until last month and it is brilliant. Side loaded apps like viber do not seem to work as well as they do on their native platform. They are very glitchy to load up.

Simple, don't download it. Others can enjoy using it on BB10.

BlackBerry 10 is on the rise and Viber is late to the party.

If this is the "top app" that was teased a couple of days ago, I'm disappointed; even moreso since it's just an Android port. Like someone else said, how often do the Android ports get updated? Not very often. I think Ghost Commander is the only one that has seen any semi regular updates. Waze hasn't been updated since day one even though the Android version has been updated tons of times.

I'll stick with BBM. They missed the boat and now BBM IS cross platform!

Not native BB10 App, I confirmed it with @viber via Twitter couple hours ago ..

Jonathank

Fuk Viber... My BBM Now has Voice Chat... Viber ur wayyyy late... I just finished converting the people I know on Viber to BBM

OMG finally. Actually, lack of whatsapp and viber at launch of bb10 was what kept me from buying a z10. I chose to buy xperia z which launched at the same time. I need whatsapp and viber due to ease of communication with my friends. Now i am going to switch back to bb with next high end model.

trocinki

To late for them. I was using Viber, but when BBM came to android I converted my friends, so I no longer need Viber.

Tigershark24

Many more people use Viber then BBM and unless BlackBerry get a move on with video calling I fear it will be another missed opportunity and another nail in the coffin for the company. The loss of focus on native apps is also killing the company.

That's good news for Viber, BlackBerry and BlackBerry users.

Apps just work faster on BlackBerry. Apps like Fasttube , Blaq, whine. They are not even official apps! I see a trend - more and more developers are discovering how code friendly BlackBerry is. Keep moving forward
