Viber for Windows 8.1 now supports video calls

The Viber VoIP app for Windows 8.1 can now be used for video calls for the first time, thanks to its latest update that brings its version number up to 4.0. Viber also updated its Windows Phone app earlier today.

The first version of Viber for Windows 8.1 made its debut in December 2013. The change log for the new 4.0 version also reveals some more additions. Here's the break down:

  • Make video calls (supported on PC)
  • Viber Out: call non-Viber mobile and landline numbers at low rates
  • Easily see all photos in a chat by swiping
  • New Emoticons
  • Support right-to-left languages

If you want to use the Windows 8.1 Viber app, you must first install and use the Windows Phone or other smartphone version of Viber.
