Viber CEO confirms update coming to Windows Phone

Viber for Windows Phone

A few days back is when we last had any information about Viber – the popular cross-platform VoIP service and Skype rival. At the time we heard an update for Windows Phone was coming ‘very soon’ and we speculated voice support was in the next update. Looks like that is indeed the case.

TruTower, a blog dedicated to most everything VoIP, reached out to Talmon Marco, the CEO of Viber, and learned some cool things about their future plans with Windows Phone and Windows 8. For Windows Phone users, the app is currently in the final stages of development and will be out real soon. This time, it won’t be exclusive to Lumia devices through the Nokia Collection, but instead will be available to all Windows Phone 8 devices. Right now they currently have no plans to announce anything for Windows 8, but he expressed they are always looking at all platforms.

There you have it, the Viber CEO confirming the update for Windows Phone is incoming and of course we’ll let you guys know when its out.

I don't mean to be down on MS, but I really think that once they are ready for proper voip intergration into the whole OS, skype is going to be the last one to the party.

I have like crazy....its killing me that there are no updates so far lol.. I even went to the ms store to see if they knew anything....she said she couldnt say....tease -_-

As far as I understood it, they said the App was only available for Lumia users. Unless they meant WP7 Lumia users (for I have it, from Nokia, on my L800). In which case, it explains why it's not in my L920's Nokia Collection (but there's a version of it, by Viber, on the Store. With excellent classification: 2 stars lol).

"This time, it won’t be exclusive to Lumia devices through the Nokia Collection, but instead will be available to all Windows Phone 8 devices" Does this mean that no wp7.x?

Oh guys be glad about viber is coming, others can come after that, nimbuzz is available so calling feature could be on the way too

Viber is my most wanted app and I have been daily twitted on their twitter site on when is it coming, it would be the best thing to happen on marketplace ever if it gets released in two weeks, I hope so

this is good but i wonder how many more months this time the "coming soon" is.
And where is the Facebook update? seems all the big apps are finally starting to get their act together but as usual, Microsoft is left with their thumb stuck
