Viber might finally arrive on BlackBerry 10 devices
According to a recent post in Twitter, Viber is working closely with BlackBerry on bringing the popular cross-platform messenger to BB10 devices. Although a BlackBerry 10 version of Viber was being developed last year, the development was halted without explanation several months ago. Still, it looks like both the developer and BlackBerry itself are determined to release Viber for the platform.

Although BlackBerry 10 devices can be sideloaded with the Android version of the messenger, a full-fledged Viber app is greatly anticipated by a lot of BB 10 users. 

Viber was recently purchased by Rakuten, a large Japanese e-commerce site, for roughly $900 million.

It's better late than never. BB is not bad as of this stage. They had been bringing in apps that is widely used on different mobile platforms. Good move for the new CEO.

True. But Viber is one of the apps both android and apples has that can communicate to each other using VOIP.

Hopefully, it would not like the newly arrived Tango, that keeps lagging and crushing all the time. Just please make a native app. I uninstalled most of the Android apps on my Z 10 because they are really slow and problematic. Even with the last bb10 update, the Android apps are not working fine on my Z10
