Viber Free Download for iOS and Android: How to View Shared Media

2

Do you own a smartphone?

Well, that might just be the most stupid question ever asked. This is true, because in 2014 alone, more than 1.5 billion Android and iOS smartphones were shipped.

This is a huge figure and with close to such figures in the previous years, it is hard to imagine that any person would be walking around without a smartphone. The number of smartphones in the global market has on the constant rise thanks to the continued demand for mobile content. Many people have come to realize the power of these devices and since they are very affordable as opposed to computers, many prefer to own even more than two devices.

Messaging and calling apps are other drivers of smartphone sales. People are moving from communicating using SMS and traditional phone calls and are now using instant messengers to send messages as well as make free calls over the internet. This has escalated the demand for smartphones, especially in developing countries. Among the many apps available for free calling and messaging is Viber.

Viber is free to download and install

Viber is a free app, be it downloading, installing or using it. Once you download and install it on your smartphone, you will be able to send and receive free messages in the form of videos, audio notes, photos and texts as well as make free voice and video calls. This only requires an internet connection and that’s it.

The fact that Viber allows users to share all kinds of multimedia files has made this application very popular. The app has over 600 million users from all over the world who use it actively on a monthly basis. However, not all of these people are pros at what they do as far as Viber’s multimedia content is concerned.

Even though the app is handy when it comes to sharing media files ranging from videos, photos, recordings, GIFs, stickers and many others, it might get a little tricky when it comes to viewing all the shared media. So, how do you do it? Here’s how.

How to view shared media from a given Viber chat

Start the Viber app and open the chat window of the contact you wish to see what you media you shared. Once in the conversation, swipe from left to right to reveal a drawer with three items on the menu, namely “Background”, “Media” and “Smart notifications”. Tap on the “Media” option and you will open up all the media you’ve shared with this contact.
