HD voice coming to Viber for Windows Phone, but only on Nokia Lumia phones

HD voice coming to Viber for Windows Phone, but only on Nokia Lumia phones
Wideband, or the so-called high-definition voice is a good thing, as it allows for superior clarity and best audio experience in VoIP applications. It doubles both the sound spectrum width, and the sampling rate, so voices come out exceptionally loud and clear, with a fraction of the bandwidth needed by the traditional solution.

These HD voice goodies are now coming to Viber for Windows Phone, the popular mobile communications platform, which recently announced it reached 100 million users, but there is a catch. 

The HD-quality voice transmission will be available exclusively for the Nokia Lumia Windows Phones Viber app, developed in association with Nokia, so the Finns are scoring another WP exclusive to make their handsets more attractive amongst the competition from Samsung and HTC.

We still don't have a specific date unfortunately, but we are currently in the process of coordinating the release.

If all goes as planned, the new update should be released soon.

We have decided to pull our calling update from Market Place due to problems found with the calling feature for some users.
We are working around the clock to fix the problem, and we hope to make a new version available on Market Place shortly.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience, and we recommend that you stay tuned for news and updates.

Regards,
the Viber Team.

Viber's new update (with the calling feature) should be available for everyone on Market Place right now.

Please refresh your Market Place (or reboot your phone if needed). If Viber still does not appear there, please contact Windows Phone support.
