I connect with a couple of hundred people from different walks of life all around the world and I have never heard somebody mention google + hangouts. I know a few people who signed up for google + accounts and then deleted them after a few months.

Ah, the good old "I don't know people who use..." thing.

I don't understand why people think their anecdotal evidence is actually... evidence of anything.

Sorry for late reply. I don't know about the video quality of Viber compared to Skype and FaceTime. Haven't tried it yet.

I think video quality of Facetime is best for now. Skype is not so good.

You can e-mail an entire conversation thread, in case you want to save a conversation or send it to someone else, or just back it up.

You can look at all the media sent to the conversation without having to scroll up and load it first.

You can actually quit a group conversation.

You can turn on/off notifications for individual conversations.

I mean, WhatsApp is the Batmobile and iMessage is a moped. If all you need to do is send a message or two from time to time, iMessage is definitely enough, but not understanding why someone with iOS might like WhatsApp is just being plain clueless.

Hi there,
This issue usually happens when trying to use the same number to register to Viber on more than 1 device simultaneously.

Is this the case?

Viber Video Codec

Hi, I got this error: "xyz has sent a video, but your Mac does not yet support videos ?" so what might be the codec Viber use for the videos?

That would be great if you said it here or here.

Thanks.

Hi,

Viber Desktop still does not support video messages. We plan to add it in future updates.
You are right - it should be pointed out in our HelpDesk, and we will make the necessary changes when we revise the relevant pages.

Thanks again!

Hi,
I hope a better design Viber in the future.
Enhancement : Why not use the notifications defaults on OS X?
Thanks.
