Viber for WP8 update brings Viber Out support

Viber updated its eponymous app for Windows Phone 8 to version 4.1, which enables Viber Out – the service that allows users to place regular calls (as opposed to Viber VoIP calls) to many countries on the cheap.

“Viber Out has been a game changer for our users and allows them to rely on Viber for all their communication needs,” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber.

“With the addition of this critical feature to our Windows Phone 8 version, we are ensuring that the complete Viber experience is available on as many platforms as possible. This focus on cross-platform support is one of our most important commitments to our users.”

The update adds additional features too, like the ability to send multiple photos at once, send short video messages and use Bluetooth hands-free.

An update earlier this year Viber for Windows Phone gained access to the Sticker Market. Stickers are enjoying huge popularity on the various IM platforms right now and are a major source of money for the company.

You can update the app from the Windows Phone Store if it hasn’t updated automatically already.
