Viber gets Mac and Windows desktop apps, starts to look like a serious Skype competitor
Viber is a VoIP application that is a direct rival to Skype, but it is even better in some ways - it stays always-on in the background of your phone so you don’t have to remember to turn it on as you have to with Skype. It consumes a minimum of resources and it gives free calling and messaging to everyone on Viber.

Even better - Viber has now gotten a desktop client, an app for Windows and Mac that you can use to call and message from. The Viber desktop client makes it a direct competitor to the Microsoft-owned Skype.

This also makes Viber truly cross-platform - it runs on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Nokia Symbian phones and even the outdated Samsung bada OS.

Here is a quick rundown of the desktop client features, and it is all free for you to grab at the link below:

  • Best-quality HD voice calls
  • Video calls
  • Free text and photo messages
  • Group conversations
  • No registration, passwords or invitations required
  • Contacts and messages sync between your mobile and Windows
  • Transfer ongoing calls between devices
