This week, Viber Media, the pioneering mobile VoIP company, released the latest version of its extremely popular mobile communications platform – Viber 2.2.
The new version is currently available for Android and iPhone operating systems and boasts multiple new features ready to be discovered by Viber users. It’s new, it’s fresh and it’s taking the app to a whole new level.
The most obvious changes are group messaging, multiple user interface improvements, and better call quality.
For Blackberry users, the new beta version has also been updated with the latest text-messaging options.
Viber 2.2. brings you a completely different messaging experience. Now Viber users can communicate with up to 16 contacts at once, which is a huge step forward in the world of mobile communications. It will most probably prove very useful among both businesspeople and circles of friends. In order to avoid possible confusion, profile images and display names are constantly shown in the message screen. Together with the release of group messaging, Viber has integrated several smart features into its text messaging platform:
- a smart notification system that limits new message alerts so users won’tbe overwhelmed with every new reply
- text messages incorporating photos and locations
- unique background images for each user, meaning you can have your own background image while group chatting that others who are involved in the conversation can’t see
- changing backgrounds for different chats
Another more than welcome addition is the improved call quality on Viber due to an HD voice engine, which will certainly be one of the biggest factors to help the app recruit new users. Enhancements regarding the Viber interface will also be interesting for people involved in group messaging sessions, as they will be able to share names and photos with users who are not directly connected with them and who are not in their own contact list.
As for Android users, Viber 2.2. offers them 9 available languages – Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. More languages are coming soon.
Get ready for an entirely new communications experience with Viber 2.2. – the hottest thing this summer.
