Following are some important tips and tricks for viber users. Use these tricks and use viber as a pro. Share these tips with friends and others. Enjoy!
Get Viber on two devices at the same time
One of the coolest features from this new version is the possibility of being connected from two devices at the same time. So you can now run Viber simultaneously on phone and PC, and to do this, you have to install Viber on the second device and a code will pop out on your primary device. After that, you just have to enter the code and you’re done!
Enable Smart Notifications
By default, you will keep on receiving every single notification sent to you by your friend, even if that person sent them consecutively. If you find that annoying and distracting, turn on the Smart Notifications feature to let Viber combine those messages into one notification instead. To do that follow these steps.
- Enter the chat room where you want to enable smart notifications, and swipe to the left.
- Tap on Smart Notifications to enable it.
Turning off the “Light Screen”
You don’t want your Android device’s battery to run out quickly, because every time you receive a message the screen turns on, then disable this feature. Go to “Navicon” -> “Settings” -> “Notifications” -> disable “Light screen”.
Customize your background
If you are bored of the old background of your conversations, you can go to Settings -> Default background and from there you can select a variety of great Viber backgrounds. You can also add a picture from your gallery.
Use Push-To-Talk feature
Viber’s Push To Talk feature makes your life easier. In order to send messages, you just have to press the microphone button, which is in the right side of the conversation. A new big button called “Hold & Talk mode” will appear. If the chat partner which you are talking to will have the “Hold & Talk mode” ON, all the messages will automatically be streamed and played on each other. In case your chat partner doesn’t have this option ON, your messages will be recorded and sent to him and in order to listen to them, he will need to play them manually.
Switch Between Conversations Quickly
If you’ve got a lot of conversations going on, you probably need to change between chat rooms quickly. Instead of going to the app’s main page every single time you want to switch chat rooms, there’s a better way to do that. Have a look at the following tip.
Enter any chat room of your previous conversations, and swipe to the right of your device screen.
In here you can see all your active chat rooms and you can easily switch to a different chat room by tapping on your friend/group chat name.
Doodling your photos
When you take a photo with your phone’s camera or when you receive a photo from your friends, you can use the Viber Doodle to “edit” it. Go to the photo you want to “doodle”, tap on the “Navicon” -> choose Doodle on this photo and let your imagination take care of the rest. You’ll have some options to choose from: eraser, brush, colors etc. When you’re done, tap on “Send” and send the piece of art to your Viber friends.
A lot of free stickers
The new version of Viber comes with a lot of new stickers in the sticker market, but it comes with a lot of free ones also! Just go to the sticker market and download the free stickers you like!
Wifi sleep policy
Viber will set by default WiFi to be active all the time, so you won’t have to go “offline”. To follow the “Sleep Policy”, go to “Navicon” -> “Settings” -> General -> WiFi sleep policy and choose the right settings.
