The Viber team has revealed on Twitter that an update is well on the way for Windows Phone, which is speculated to bring VOIP support. The app is currently only enabling consumers to communicate with contacts via messages, leaving alternatives as solutions for VOIP. So when can we all expect to see said update delivered to Windows Phones? It's "coming very soon."
Take what you will from the statement made on Twitter. The team is not revealing much regarding an exact date of release.
@burny92 We do not yet have an exact release date - hang in there!— Viber (@Viber) March 6, 2013
We can't imagine the Viber team holding off for much longer, especially with competitor products further advancing on Windows Phone. The store listing also serves as a reminder for consumers of what's on the horizon:
"VOICE COMING SOON: We promise that as soon as the full version is ready, we will make it available so will be able to use Viber for Windows phone to also make free calls to any other Viber user, anywhere in the world."
Luckily, Viber users won't have to go through the same issues as those who are still waiting for Tango to sort their Windows Phone app out. You can download the current version of Viber Messenger from the Windows Phone Store.
C'mon, Viber. Let's change that message icon to a phone. Thanks, Dome85, for the heads up!
