viber

Viber has updated the Mac version of its popular Skype alternative to add six new features:

  • Full support for group messaging
  • Stickers & emoticons
  • “Is typing” feature, showing who is actively writing in a conversation
  • Redesigned conversations list
  • Improved pop-up notifications
  • Full support for contacts with multiple Viber numbers

The desktop app (also available on Windows) was launched back in May, and the integration between desktop and mobile platforms has been the main reason I favor the platform over Skype. Although you get visual alerts on all devices, audio alerts are limited to the one you’re actively using, and you can easily transfer calls between devices.
