Viber stickers, emoticons and locations

With the 2.3 version of Viber, you can send not only text, but stickers, emoticons and locations, also. After entering in the conversation, just tap on massage menu (‘+’ sign). The menu in the middle allows you to share your current location and photos. Photos can be added from your gallery or you can take it with your phone camera and send it right away!

If you want to share a Sticker, just slide to the right (left menu). Scroll down and you’ll find stickers. Use them to make a statement! :)

If you want to share an Emoticon, slide to the left (right menu). Scroll down and you’ll find pretty cool emoticons! Make your conversations funnier!

Awesome feature, which Viber kept very simple to use, is sending location: if you want to share your current location, just enable it by taping the arrow in the text box. If enabled, your current location will be attached to every outgoing massage.

Another cool feature is sending custom location. For example: if you want to meet your friend or colleague on custom location, use the middle menu button:

2.3_android_custom_location 2

Now, to send a custom location, slide the location pin to the place you wish to send and hit ‘Send’.

    Hello, is there any way to turn off the emoticons automatically replacing my text? e.g. show :) instead of the yellow smiley face
    I really dislike the design of the emoticons (sorry! :( ) and can’t stand using any smileys now (first world problem, I know… :P )
    Thanks very much

      Hi,

      Unfortunately this option is not yet available.

      we invite you to enter our Feature Request page and post your suggestion there, or join an existing similar suggestion. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to integrate every suggested feature into Viber, but the more people join on a request, the faster it will become reality :)

        remove Merry Christmas, happy 2014? pack? that is the question!
        Deactivate Viber and run to app Store and reinstall – no more Merry Xmas for 11 month…hehehe

  • yasin

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi,

      Did you make sure that both sides have the latest version of Viber installed?
      Does the destination contact have a device that supports emoticons on Viber?

  • Vilibalt

    Hi!
    Is it possible to add personal stickers to the list?
    Thanks

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Unfortunately not.
      However, we are hard at work to bring our users more and more Stickers with each new version. We hope that you will enjoy it ;)

  • Erica

    Hello! I’ve installed Viber last version on my Android! It works really fine and I like the new stickers very much, BUT… how do I do to delet those that I have downloaded but I don’t want any more? Thank you!!

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi,

      At the moment it is not possible to delete downloaded stickers. We are considering to add this feature in the future.

      • Osama

        So do i have to uninstall viber and reinstall it back to find those stickers removed????

        • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

          Unfortunately yes, that is the only way currently.

          Note that if you’d like those removed stickers back in the future, you won’t have to pay for them again to download them from Sticket Market.

          • Anker

            I’m sorry, but that is such bad interface design. I now have a bunch of stickers that I’ll never use cluttering up my app (making it a time consuming task to find the stickers I want), just because I wanted to try out this new feature.

          • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

            The option to remove purchased stickers from your sticker folder will be available in future versions.

            We understand your feedback, and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

  • Paul Taylor

    I’ve installed the latest version on my Android phone and tablet, which is fantastic, but suddenly in the last few hours stickers from my fiancée, an Iphone user, are coming through as unrecognized formats to both devices! We both installed the new version yesterday, they worked until about 2 hours ago. Help!

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi Paul,

      That was a temporary glitch in our servers, that should have been resolved by now.

      Please try rebooting Viber (on both contacts’ phones), then try again. Does it work now?

      • Paul Taylor

        Yes thanks, it started working a few hours later :)

  • Holly Ham

    I’ve installed the latest version on my iPhone 5. My audio messages won’t play. I get a message that says, “Unable to play. Audio can’t be played at the moment. Please make sure no other audio is being played.” There is no other audio being played. What do I do?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Thank you for the report of the problem.

      we would appreciate if you could take a minute and report the details to our support team using this direct link: http://helpme.viber.com/index.php?/Tickets/Submit/RenderForm/1

      When you submit the ticket, in the line called: “Through which channel did you submit your initial inquiry”, please make sure to choose “Technical Forum”. With this information, our development team will hopefully be able to find the source of the problem, and ultimately resolve it.

      Thanks in advance :)

      • Holly Ham

        I figured out the problem. It was due to the filter blocker in my building. If I take the setting off wi-fi, it works. Thank you for your time!

        • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

          We’re glad to hear that Viber works once more for you.

          Enjoy :)

    Hello! I’ve installed Viber last version on my IPHONE It works really fine and I like the new stickers very much, BUT… how do I delet those that I have downloaded but I don’t want any more? Thank you!!

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi,

      Thanks for the kind words. We’re glad to hear you’re enjoying our new version!

      Unfortunately there is currently no way to delete downloaded stickers from the sticker repository. We plan to add this option in future versions of Viber.

      • Tsa

        hopefully the delete function for downloaded stickers would be out very soon..

        • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

          This is our hope.

          • Slava UA

            No update about deleting stickers since that time?

  • mike

    Hi. how can i remove a picture of a contact. By going into edit, photo then delete photo; the photo is removed from the contact page until pressing ‘done’. At this stage the original photo returns.

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Currently, the photo that the contact set (for themselves) is always the photo that will appear (it gets ‘prioritized’).

      If you’d like this behavior to change, then we invite you to enter our Feature Request page and post your suggestion
      there, or join an existing similar suggestion. Unfortunately it is not
      possible for us to integrate every suggested feature into Viber, but the
      more people join on a request, the faster it will become reality :)

      • hno

        Same here, after every reboot, I get the downloading of stickers error message

  • shourov

    i am using viber in pc bt i cant get all stiker……… what should i do?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi,

      Please elaborate on the problem… what exactly happens when you try to use Stickers? Are you getting any error message?

      Note that more Stickers can be purchased through our Sticker Market.

  • Josan

    I’ve used Viber for years and I liked how they integrated stickers but how exactly do you uninstall stickers?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      At the moment it is unfortunately not possible. You can uninstall Viber, and when you reinstall, Stickers will be gone from your Sticker folder (but this will unfortunately result in message history deletion).

      In the future we plan to add a feature that lets you remove Stickers from your folder.

      • Amtul

        Plz add any feature which allow us to remove stickers from viber .

        • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

          Hi,

          As we explained, we plan it for future updates.
          We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

          • Sa

            Nice work! Bravo!
            Well first of all you SHOULD warn people about stickers that once downloaded they are non removable!
            Sorry but it SUCKS!

  • Nicole

    If I purchase sticker do I pay every time I use it or once it is purchased I can send as much as I want free?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Once you’ve purchased it, it’s yours to use whenever you want, with no extra charge :)

  • Daisy

    Hi, please, how do i delete a downlooaded sticker which i no longer desire to use? Thanks.

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Unfortunately this feature is not available yet.

      We plan to add it in future versions. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

      • Shally

        this is really annoying please find a way to uninstall stickers that we are not wishing to use anymore.

      • MG

        Its been two months this post now please add this feature to delete the stickers.

  • Sasha

    Hi.

    Why is shy emoticon on Viber desktop different from the one on android app?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      We’ll look into it, thank you.

  • Ronald

    Hello how do I create my own stickers I want to share?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      This option is not yet possible.
      We are considering to add this service in the future, and when we have news we’ll let our users know.

      • MG

        Hi I am from India, please make few sticker that have a real Indian feel. Something really “Indianized”. Thanks.

  • dave

    Android – I don’t want “Viber sent you a new sticker” How do I disable it?

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      This was a one-time gesture from our company to our users, wishing a Happy New Year.

      We apologize if this has
      offended you, this was not our intention. Thank you for your feedback

      • Paul

        I have gotten one over twenty time today alone. How can I block stickers from all senders? I want text and pictures, not stickers….

      • jb82

        That’s really not an answer. Clearly people want to be able to opt out of notifications from Viber, including stickers. It’s not about “offending.” It’s a feature request. I’m uninstalling.

  • Nigel

    if you send me another pointless ‘sticker’ I’ll delete the app and go back to What’s App! We are not all aged 6 yrs old you know!

  • Noel Shortall

    what does the moa icon mean?

  • Guest

    How can I BLOCK STICKERS from coming to me completely.

  • YH

    The new updates is causing the app to lag. When will this be fixed?

  • sara

    How can a delete a pack of stickers

  • Nadine

    How do I delete a pack of stickers???

  • Pradeep george

    Need option to delete the downloaded stickers.
    Also need change in UI where the list of chats are shown in chat page.
    Small chat list is enough.

  • Quan

    Hi, I know the function to delete installed Sticker will launch in the future. But we are here really NEED it available soon. Thank you.

  • Alex

    Please add options for deleting old stickers!

    • MG

      I even I want to delete few stickers that I have downloaded, now i dont like them and dont want them.

  • dean

    i had to uninstall and then reinstall viber, i have lost my purchased stickers and cannot redownload, it shows i have purchased them but they are not appearing and i cant re download?

  • dean

    need help getting back stickers which i purchased but had to uninstall and reinstall viber and the purchased stickers disappeared.

  • peter

    If I buy a sticker pack through Google Play and then buy an iPhone and move my phone # and Viber account over, do I get to keep my paid sticker pack?

  • Elin

    Please make it possible to delete smiles and stickers. I just want to send normal text messages and send pictures. /Elin

  • Guest

    Option to DELETE stickers would have been a useful option by now.
    NOT adding a to-be-paid for sticker as a “suggestion” (??) to the stickers bar would be a better look yeah…..That’s push selling?

  • mary

    There are no stickers shown in left menu…..

  • jmo

    Could you please advise when the function to delete sticker packs will be introduced? It has been mentioned many times below but hasn’t been done! An estimated timeframe would be appreciated.

  • Paul Seligman

    Why do you send me stickers? i don’t want any false notifications, I don’t have time for any spam. I only want messages from people who know me. How do I stop inane and inappropriate stickers from Vibes?

    • sean

      Me too quit spamming me with stickers !!!!

  • Davies

    Why does viber keep sending me stickers? I do not want to receive messages from the company I only want to receive e messages from people I know. Earlier you said this was a one time thing for new years but you are lying as i a have got it again for St patricks day and another one to say for no reason.

  • Jeff

    I do not want stickers, and I do not want notifications from Viber about stickers. I just want to talk and text with my contacts.

    “Most likely your question has already been asked and answered.”
    What I see is other people asking about the same thing, but it has not been answered, which makes me think I may need to remove Viber from my phone and switch to Voxer or WhatsApp.
    Viber? Any comment? How do we disable the annoying sticker thing, or at least turn off the Viber sticker sell notifications?

  • andy c

    i keep getting sent request to purchase st.patricks day stickers, i dont want them and st.pats day was a month ago. how do i stop this

    • http://www.viber.com/ Viber

      Hi Andy,

      We would like to assist you, but will need more information.

      Please open a support ticket here: http://bit.ly/1aOwGy2 and be sure to include a screenshot of this message.

      Thanks!

  • Nicole

    Got a notification from Viber today with a sticker. Don’t want to receive this from Viber. It seems this can’t be disabled. If this is the case and I get one more notification with a sticker, I’ll uninstall Viber.
