Making calls with Viber
Viber is a cross-platform VoIP and IM app that lets you make free calls and send free messages to other Viber users, on any device and network, in any country! Viber is available for iPhone/iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Nokia, and Bada devices, as well as Mac and Windows. You can also use Viber on your desktop or laptop computer. Let’s get started!
There are two ways to add contacts in Viber. You can either import your existing phone contacts or search for Viber users using the in-app search function.
To import your phone contacts:
1. Open Viber and click on the Contacts tab.
2. Click on the Add Contact icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
3. Select Import from Phone Contacts.
4. Select the contacts you want to add and click Add to Viber.
5. Click Done when you’re finished adding contacts.
To search for a Viber user:
1. Open Viber and click on the Contacts tab.
2. Click on the Add Contact icon in the top-right corner of the screen (it looks like a plus sign).
3. Enter the person’s name or phone number in the search bar that appears at the top of the screen and press Enter/Return on your keyboard to begin searching for that person.
4 If that person has a Viber account, their name and profile photo will appear in the search results list below the search bar; if they don’t have a Viber account, their name won’t appear in the search results list at all. To add a person with a Viber account to your contacts list, click on their name in the search results list and then click Add Contact in the pop-up menu that appears.* If you don’t see Add Contact as one of the options in this pop-up menu, it means that this person is already in your contacts list and you don’t need to add them again.*
5 Once you’ve added someone as a contact, they’ll appear in your Contacts list; from here, you can start a chat or call with them just like you would with any other contact.* If someone who isn’t already in your contacts list tries to contact you via chat or call, you’ll see their number or name appear in gray text underneath each of their messages or calls in your chats window; tapping on this gray text will allow you to add this person as a contact so that their name (instead of just their number) will appear whenever they message or call you going forward.*
Make a call
To make a call, you’ll need to have the Viber app open and running on your computer, and be signed in with your Viber account.
1. Open the Viber app on your Mac.
2. From the sidebar, select the contact you want to call.
3. Click the call button in the top-right corner of the window.
4. Your call will now be connected!
Send a message
