Microsoft formally announces Viber for Windows 10

Microsoft formally announced today that Viber is available for Windows 10. The news comes well over a month after the beta was launched.

As you can see from the photo above, Viber still offers apps for Windows Phone 7 and 8, but the UWP app will include "video calls for mobile, Cortana support, quick reply and more!"

Here's the full list of features:

  • Video calls on mobile: Now you can video-call anyone from your phone!

  • Quick reply: Your messages will pop up outside of the app so that you can reply quickly, without opening up the app, and get on with whatever you’re doing.

  • Cortana support: Simply ask Cortana with your voice to call or text someone for you.

  • Share to Viber: Share links, text, photos, videos or your location to Viber easily from within any Windows 10 app.

  • Access chats from Start menu: Start a new message or reply in recent chats right from the Start menu.

  • Organize stickers: Hide and change the display order of your stickers through the Sticker Market settings.

  • Localization: New language support for both Russian and Portuguese

  • Live Tile: The Live Tile in Windows 10 will show you your new messages

  • Like messages: You can now like messages in group chats

Viber has some interesting features that aren't found on some other messaging services. For example, you can delete a message after it's sent, in the case that you've changed your mind about it. You can also have group messages with up to 200 people.

The app officially dropped the beta label last week, and you can check out Viber's blog post about it. It's available for all Windows 10 devices, which means that you can get it on your PC as well as your Windows phone. To download it from the Windows Store, you can get it right here.
