Viber looking for new Windows Phone 8 beta testers

Viber is using its Facebook page to recruit some new Windows Phone 8 beta testers in order to improve the popular VoIP app. The Facebook post itself doesn't offer any details of what exactly Viber has planned for new app features, but it sounds like the company is eager to get some feedback on something they want to launch later to the general public

The Viber app for Windows Phone, which first launched in May 2012, has come a long way in just over two years, with a boatload of new features added since that time (the first version didn't even have audio call support). In the Facebook recruitment page, Viber says they are looking for Windows Phone users with "a strong desire to improve" the app, along with "a keen eye for detail, time to dedicate to bug reporting and completing a short feedback survey."

If users have those qualities, and a Windows Phone 8 device, they are directed to register their interest on a separate website, after which they will get an email with more instructions to follow.

So what will Viber's beta app for Windows Phone 8 include that's not available in the current public version? That remains to be seen but if we get any information about what these Viber beta testers are checking out, we will report on it as soon as we get confirmation.

Thanks to faalil and everyone else for the tips
