Viber Shows Off Upcoming Voice Calling on BlackBerry – Coming in April

 Viber BlackBerry

Viber fans have been waiting patiently (and impatiently) to get in on the cross platform VoIP calling from their BlackBerry smartphones. Viber let us know this morning that voice calling is coming to BlackBerry in April and even provided a video of it working as a preview. They claim they will be the first to bring mass market cross platform VoIP service to BlackBerry which is more or less true. Check out the video below:

Viber is also releasing an updated version of their current BlackBerry client today. This new version adds their stickers and emoticons as well as other improvements in v2.3. They have also improved the user interface and conversation screen with stripes. There is also new translations for Arabic and Spanish. Other features include:

  • New “view location” screen
  • Connect with your friends in group conversations of up to 40 participants
  • Improved Facebook integration
  • Optimized scrolling for message viewing
  • Bug fixes

Viber has confirmed that BlackBerry is their third popular platform even though it does not have voice calling. Their CEO stated that:

“We have worked hard to ensure a consistent Viber experience across all of our supported platforms. This is especially true for Blackberry, which is our third most popular platform,” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber. “We have invested significant resources in making Viber for Blackberry the best experience possible for our users. Ultimately, this experience will include voice calling, and we are thrilled to demonstrate that feature for our users.”

  2. Viber has to be with calls at the closest time quickly.
