How to Get Viber

Getting Viber is simple. Just open the Google Play Store on your Android device and type “Viber” into the search bar. The app is free and downloads in just minutes. The app requires you to have Android version 2.3 or higher for it to run. Viber uses 38M of memory and offers in-app purchases ranging in price from 99 cents to $35.17 USD per item.

Once downloaded, set up is quick and easy. Just open the app and you’ll be guided through the set up process. Click “continue” on the welcome screen to begin and Viber will prompt you to give it access to your phone’s address book. Select allow and your contacts will sync with the app. Viber will automatically detect which of your friends are also using the app.

Next, select your country or location from the drop-down menu and enter in your telephone number. In order to ensure the privacy of users, Viber sends a text message with a unique access code that must be entered into the app to complete registration. You’ll want to make sure you are in a strong signal area, or a WiFi hotspot before you begin.

You can also login using Facebook. When you select this option, you’ll be prompted to give Viber access to your account. The prompt will have specifics about which parts of your profile you will need to share with the app.

That’s all there is to it! Once these steps are complete, you’ll have successfully downloaded Viber from the Google Play Store and you can start connecting with friends and family right away.
