In line with the tough competition that exists in the internet communication niche today; Viber keeps improving day and night; rolling out new features and services that attract more users and retaining the current ones. To use the app, all one needs is an internet connection and that’s all. The good part of it is that it can make use of Wi-Fi or even mobile data connections. Viber is a free to download and install app, which means you won’t be asked to pay anything for getting the app installed on your device or even using it for a lifetime.

Just recently, Viber rolled out updates that enabled mobile phone users to start enjoying free video calls. In the past, this feature was only available for the application’s PC users, which kind of frustrated the millions who use it on the go. Now that the app has completely integrated the video calling ability in all mobile platforms of the app, it has moved on to the next step, which is rolling out the version for Google’s Chromebooks.
