Viber-Doodle-iOS-appPopular messaging and VoIP service Viber just updated its iPhone app with a number of new features that first hit Android devices yesterday. The update brings “doodles”, a feature that lets users draw on top of photos before sharing.

Also new in version 3.1 of Viber is the ability to see when a recipient has viewed a message with “Seen” status notifications.

In addition, the updated app includes more emoticons, additional language support, and “Support for the Viber Desktop application on Windows and Mac.”

A full list of new features is below:

What’s New in Version 3.1

• Send doodles or paint over a photo and share it with your friends!
• “Seen” status lets you know when your messages have been seen
• Support for the Viber Desktop application on Windows and Mac
• Fun new emoticons
• Message performance improvements
• Bug fixes
• Localized to: Croatian, Norwegian, Romanian, Slovak and Ukrainian

    Few hour ago I updated Viber (3.1.0.1585) on my ipad, thereafter it’s not working. I tried to reinstall today twice but no success. Viber pops up with white body and purple top border with no icons or phonebook and then it crashes within a seconds. This started happening after the recent update on my ipad with iOS 5.1.1. Please help!

    @Xin Abina -

    We are aware of this problem, and we hope to offer a solution soon. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

    @Angela Lauber (@kerubina) -

    Unfortunately it’s not possible.
    However, you can simply turn off the “last seen” option inside Viber’s settings, meaning contacts cannot see when you were last online, but you won’t be able to see it either.

      The “seen” status is unfortunately not yet available for Viber on Desktop/Mac. We are considering to add it in future updates, and when we have news we’ll let you know :)

  9. Hey guys,
    I’m not able to enable my microphone. Where do I find the link IPhone’s Settings -privacy – microphone-viber-set to ON?
    I can’t find the button ‘privacy’, not in the viber setting, even in the setting from the IPhone.
    It would be very kind, to help me soon.
