Over the past few years, a number of different free voice calling applications have been introduced for use on Smartphone devices. Most (if not all) of these applications utilize the VoIP feature to enable these calls. There is one application, however, that has managed to capture the attention of a large number of people, and that is Viber. The application can be used to send and receive text messages, pictures and videos and other forms of data, and also making and receiving voice and video calls at almost no expense.
Well, the application does not charge a dime for the sharing of data. It is absolutely free for download and use over a number of platforms that includes Android, Windows and Mac. The only cost associated with the data sharing through Viber is the cost of internet connectivity that is essential to operate this app. The app also allows users to broadcast their location to their contacts in times of need.
Features of the Viber Free Calling and Messaging app
The Viber application features a very simple and easy-to-use user interface that allows even the most basic Smartphone and computer users to operate the app with sufficient ease. In fact, the user interface is quite similar to that of a regular phone. Moreover, apart from allowing you to send and receive unlimited text messages, calls, audio and video files, etc., it also allows you to conduct group conversations. Through this, you can converse with a number of people at the same time.
Now, most similar applications are coming up with location sharing capabilities, and Viber is definitely one to sit back! Viber has also introduced the location sharing feature that allows you to share your current location with any contact in times of dire need. Moreover, with the availability of the application for use on personal computers, even people without Smartphone devices can register and use the application to make free voice and video calls. However, the makers and developers of the application are on the constant search to enhance the features of the application.
This has led to the recent introduction of stickers and new emoticons that has redefined user experience.
How to download and install Viber on your PC?

Alternatively, you can also use an Android emulator such as Bluestacks to download the setup file.
