Viber CEO Confirms BlackBerry 10 App Will LIkely Come With Launch of OS 10.2

Viber

Viber has promised that they are working on a BlackBerry 10 app with full VoIP voice capabilities in the future. They also said it would take much less time than the legacy app did to be released. Now Viber’s CEO has confirmed to TruTower that the release of the BlackBerry 10 app will “likely be hand in hand” with the launch of BlackBerry OS 10.2. Here is exactly what Talmon Marco had to say:

We’re always looking at more platforms. At the same time, Viber is a small company, so adding these is not easy. Viber will soon be available for BB10 (likely hand in hand with the release of BB 10.2). And yeah, you heard about it first!

Hopefully both BlackBerry and Viber manage to get it released soon! Thanks Bilesha for the tip!

PS: That picture above is what their Android app looks like

  1. Hi everyone,

    I’m an official representative of Viber.

    Thank you for this article about Viber. We are as excited as our users towards the upcoming release of Viber BB10.

    If anyone has any questions, please don’t hesitate letting us know.

    Regards,
    the Viber Team.

  2. Cascades look and feel is boring. Not every app needs to be a cascade app. The developer can’t differentiate from other apps. Even the tab colors can’t be changed in Cascades.

  3. Can somebody upload a working apk file while we’re waiting? Thanks.

  4. Will it be available for BlackBerry z10 as well? And can you tell me how long it might take approximately?

    • @zarsanga -

      Yes, we are hard at work these days to develop Viber for BB10.
      We still don’t official release dates, but we believe that it will be released alongside the release of BBOS 10.2

  5. when will it be released? we want a date!

  6. How can I download Viber on my blackberry q10? If is this possible then how?. In appworld Viber not appear when I searched. Please rply soon.

    • @wassem -

      Our BB10 app is currently in advanced levels of development and testing. We’re working as fast as we can, and we hope to bring you news soon. Note that the wait for our BB10 app will not be nearly as long as the wait for the update for the current version had been.

    As we explained before, our BB10 app is currently in advanced levels of development and testing. We’re working as fast as we can, and we hope to bring you news soon. Note that the wait for our BB10 app will not be nearly as long as the wait for the update for the current version had been.

  10. Hi the BB10 OS 10.2 is out but still the Viber app is not still out. I just want to know when it is likely to come out. Thank you

  11. Wow I’m so excited to see Viber in bb10 but what of OS 10.1 users does that mean viber will not work?

  12. @Aliyu Bayero- We don’t have a specific date yet, We hope to let you know as soon as we have one :)

    @khalil- Once the version will be officially out it should work on BB 10.1 :)

  13. how can i download viber to Z10, most of the versions are not compatible

  14. HEY I HAVE Z10. WILL I BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD VIBER. I GOT 10.1 UPDATED SOFTWARE??

    REPLY SOON

    • Sir, I have just checked my software update on my BlackBerry 10, it is 10.2.0.424. Why is viber still unavailable for this device.
      Please make life easy for your customers

  15. Viber is not available for BB 10.x at the moment.

    If we have news, we’ll let you know.

  16. Hi Viber,
    The Viber download page still shows the message: “Unavailable for this device” in my BB Z10.2.00.1743 (STL100-1). It’s not available in the BB World too.

    Please advise me.

    Thanks!
    YK

    • Hi,

      As we explained, Viber is not available for BB 10.x at the moment.

      If we have any updates, we’ll keep you posted.

      • This development is very disappointing. IT responses to issues like this should not take time especially when viber is available on cheaper platforms of competitors. BB Z10 cost a fortune to acquire. Kindly make it effective.

  17. Hi Viber team.
    Viber is not available for my STL100-1 version 10.2.0.1521

  18. Hi viber team plz i need viber for my bbz10 they told me in october it will be available. Is there an official release date? Thank you

  19. I bougth BlackBerry z10 & i need viber to call my relatives to other county for free… plsss.. this is a big help to us if viber will have in this device. Thank u & hope you understand

  20. I have always loved BlackBerry and I was sure once I spent a lot of money on the Q10 I’d have the Viber to call my family in Ireland, am living in Thailand, how disappointed I was to find very few interesting abs and no Viber. Please Mr. CEO tell me when will the Viber come out or better still when will the BB10.2 come out so that we poor suffering BlackBerry lovers can get our free calls,

  21. I think the BlackBerry company needs to answer this of when is the official date of BB10.2 release. Official date and if it’s also going to be available in Norway.

  22. hi , thank you Mr viber rep for answering our questions we really appreciate your interest , thank you so much

    • There’s Viber on z10 if you’re running OS 10.2.1 Viber should work its not yet released for official so I have no idea but am currently using Viber on my z10.

  26. It is already end November Mr. CEO you are talking about giving us the Viber since early in the year and still no action, all talk. I have Q10 and why do we have to wait for the 10.2 before we can have Viber? This is a costly mobile I invested in but I promise you I am fast becoming Not A BlackBerry Lover and you hang it up by early next year if Mr. CEO dos not get into action and make it happen for us BB Lovers, very disappointed with all this indeed

  27. Am using version 3.1 what of u?
