Viber 10 rolls out cleaner UI, ability to hide phone number, unified chat view

05 February 2019 2

When it comes to instant messaging applications out there, you’d probably name WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger on the top though there is this one app that was once a huge name in the instant messaging industry. Viber, which was once one of the top instant messaging apps out there got overshadowed by Facebook-owned WhatsApp, though this didn’t mean Viber getting demoralized. The app continued to get better and better with each passing update, bringing new features on the table.


Now with the rollout of the biggest update to the app yet, Viber 10 brings new UI and a lot of new features that make it a strong contender once again in the instant messaging apps industry. The all white themed Viber 10 is now available for iOS and Android platform which offers unified chat list much like WhatsApp. This unified list hosts group, private, communities chats. The new update makes it much similar to what people are used to on WhatsApp and Telegram apps.

The Viber call screens now show all your calls, Viber out balance and subscription package that is mentioned at the top of the display. Likewise, another very interesting update is the privacy feature where people could chat within communities without having to reveal their phone number, which is the hidden-number chats feature.

Likewise, group calling is also on the way where 5 people would be able to do voice calls in as a group. Have you tried Viber before? Let us know in the comment section below.
