It’s a fast world where speed defines the future. From the rise of IOT to fast cars, and speedy internet connection. The world has become 5G. It is only wise for tech companies to match up to that speed. Viber, one of the leading messenger apps in the world is stepping up to change the way we use IM, by upgrading their app features to be faster than it used to.  With more than a billion users worldwide and counting, the brand just announced a recent update for their messenger app. These updates will go live throughout June, making Viber easier to use than ever before.

The new messaging features promise not to be only fast, but fun and easy. With super quick replies, swiping, better message visibility, improved group messaging, and desktop security. For a few years now, Viber has been adding new super fun features to increase user experience and stand out as the number 1 VoIP and messaging app.

These amazing new features on Android, iPhone, Mac, and windows will boost users’ experience with:

  •    Self-Destruct Your Secret Chats

One of the coolest new features is the message self-destructs. Start a Secret Chat which will let you set a self-destruct timer for every message in your conversation so that after your message is read, it’s automatically deleted from your recipient’s phone.

  •    Lock Desktop

It is common knowledge that Viber is fully synced to your computer and laptop. You can see all your messages and calls, and chat with them directly from your desktop or android tablet. But here is the fun part, for users sharing their desktop or laptop with others, Lock Viber Desktop will enable them to keep their Viber chats private and password locked while they are away from their screen.

  •    Security

A poor security system is a major problem facing the tech world. There is an increase in security breaches, targeted towards major tech companies around the world, Viber takes the extreme step to protect its users. With its new messaging features, Viber continues the company’s commitment to user data privacy, with full end-to-end encryption set by default on all private 1 on 1 conversation, and group chats. What this actually means is that any type of information you share on Viber will always remain between yourself and the person you’re talking to. Any message you send makes its way from your device to the recipients in the form of an encrypted code that only their device can translate to plain text using an encryption key. Encryption keys exist only on user devices and nowhere else. So, no one — not even Viber — can read your messages.

  •    Quick replies

The swipe-to-reply feature is getting more popular with users every day. This feature makes it easy to reply to a message quickly by swiping on it.

  •    Messaging visibility

You can View your chat status from the main chat list to see if someone is typing or if a message was delivered and read

  •    Groups in common

Users can see which Viber groups they have in common with their contacts, which can be accessed via the info screen on any 1-on-1 chat

Finally, whether you have been having fun with the app, or are about to register as a new user, there is always something new and exciting to explore.
