There are countless ways to communicate using your tech devices, and Viber just might be the most fun way. It’s free to use when making calls, chatting, or sending files to other Viber users, no matter where they are. You might be thinking, “Doesn’t Skype already do that?” and you might be right, but Viber lets you pop in on community chats to see what others are up to, what the hot topics of conversation are, what celebrities who rely on Viber are talking about, and more. Viber also lets you connect with other users over your smartphone, which will use your data but not your cellular minutes if you still operate under that kind of plan; this is especially handy for voice conversations on your phone that you don’t want to incur international calling prices.


The best part of Viber is that it syncs with your existing contacts list, so you’re not stuck trying to figure out which of your friends is already on Viber. There’s no registration or account setup to create unless you choose to go with a paid plan (see below as to why you’d need to do so), and you don’t have to send invites to contacts in order to communicate with them; they just have to have the Viber app installed. Of course, the option to video call with up to 100 of your contacts at once makes it already leaps and bounds better than competing IP voice over platforms.

Just to make sure that Viber offers the widest range of communication options, you can still make VoIP calls directly to landlines and mobile phone numbers. These calls aren’t free, of course, but are still fairly competitive in their pricing.

To take advantage of all that Viber has to offer, you must first download the Viber app to your phone then install it on your Windows PC. Once you do that and sign in on both devices, your contacts list from your phone will sync to the application on your computer, and you’re ready to go from either device.
