Viber launched for BlackBerry 10

Viber has announced they’ve finally made their app available on BlackBerry 10. After much deliberation from Viber, users on BlackBerry 10 can join their legacy BlackBerry counterparts.

“Our BlackBerry 10 app is a beautiful twist on our design,” Viber CEO Talmon Marco said, adding that the new app delivers “the most up to date experience for our users.”

The features of the Viber on BlackBerry 10 include Viber Out and the Viber Sticker Market. Other additions include:

s to Bs
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 stated in a Tweet that the BlackBerry 10 version was now available. However, BlackBerry World doesn’t seem to have been updated to reflect its addition. Nevertheless, stay on the look out for it to hit BlackBerry World later today. We’ll update this post accordingly once it goes live.

Back in October of 2013, Viber stated they had decided to no longer have plans to support BlackBerry 10. However, this plan of action seems to have changed, as Viber is looking for a BlackBerry 10 solution.

In response to a customer inquiry on Twitter, Viber replied, “We are working with BB on a solution that will allow us to bring Viber to BB10. Please follow us for updates coming soon!”

Hopefully we will see at least an Android port of the Viber app. Nevertheless, if you’re a Viber user, stay tuned for its BlackBerry 10 debut.

Viber Ends Plans to Support BlackBerry 10

Viber have been releasing quite a number of conflicting statements if their app will be in the new BlackBerry 10 platform. Back in June, Viber CEO Talmon Marco was quoted in a TruPower interview that the popular cross-platform messaging application would likely be available with the arrival of OS 10.2. Unfortunately for fans, a recent post on their twitter account dispelled those plans as they no longer intend on releasing a version for BlackBerry 10. 

There is no reason given, but for fans still wants to install Viber they can side load it.
