Viber is a powerful app that has been around for more than one decade. Viber made its name in the Android and iOS communities by providing users with a free way of placing voice/audio calls and sending free texts to their friends. This basically means that Viber users don’t have to pay for a phone plan because they can simply connect their smartphones to a stable internet connection instead and get access to all of Viber’s features.
Even though Viber is a free to download app, this doesn’t mean that the app doesn’t benefit from full fledged developer support. In fact, Viber is updated almost on a daily basis and a new software release has recently been released. With that being said, today we are going to take a look at all the new features that Viber’s latest update brings.
Viber 188.8.131.52 Update
The latest update for Viber is changing the app’s build number to 184.108.40.206 and it is being rolled out via the app’s official OTA (over the air) channels. This means that all Viber users who keep their smartphones connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data will receive the update today.
However, we do need to mention that there is an alternative to download the new update. The alternative way is to download the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit) but this method is available only for Viber fans who use Android-powered smartphones.
Improving Group Communication
Viber fans should be pleased to find out that the new update which sports the 220.127.116.11 build number aims to improve the overall group communication performances of the app. The reason behind this is that the new update comes with a handful of software tweaks that make it easier for users to discover communities on topics that might interest them.
