Viber for Windows 10 scores a huge update with design improvements in tow
The Viber app has seen numerous updates for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile in the past, but this may be the biggest one since the unveiling of the UWP app itself.
As spotted by Windows Latest the update features many new features and improvements.
- Changes to the Share UI with new options and improved photo sharing.
- After Tapping on the share icon in chat windows you will now be able to see six options – to send photo & video; take photo & video; send file (NEW); share contact; send location (NEW); hold & talk.
- Viber now has a built-in photo picker opening by default when you tap on the share icon.
- You can attach one or more photos and send at the same time. Currently, you can only attach one photo and send for the PC version.
- A new sharing menu.
Do note that we still have the 6.5.1 version, even though the store says we are up to date. The update may be hitting just a couple of devices at the moment, with others following shortly. The Windows Store has a built in option for releasing an update to just a handful of users, collect analytics, determine stability then proceed with the rollout. This might be the case here, so If you aren't seeing the update yet, wait a few hours and it should appear.
The app can be downloaded from the link bellow if you don't already own it, and if you do, make sure to check for updates in the store.
