Viber updates desktop app, reaches 100 million users

Viber has released a new version of its desktop app for Windows, OS X and Linux that puts a lot of effort and focus into stickers. The messaging company has also announced an important milestone – more than 100 million users are now using its service.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Viber stickers these are basically emoticons on steroids that are downloaded in sets – some of which are free and others cost a few bucks. Now that the new Viber for desktop is released users can dock a sticker menu alongside their conversations and even search for stickers within the app.

The Viber desktop app has seen a design overhaul as well and offers upgraded video quality and performance. The Viber support site is also now available in Spanish and Portuguese.

Viber has been evolving rapidly for some time now. The messaging service recently set to challenge Skype with its Viber Out calling service.

The messaging service world is particularly cutthroat nowadays with giants like WhatsApp and Facebook fighting the likes of Skype and BlackBerry Messenger. Apple has its iMessage (which recently benefited from some out of the box thinking), Google has its Hangouts and now Viber. The end user gets a lot of cool services for free though so we’re grateful.
