The Viber app is not actually new but the new version, Viber Version 5.0 allows you to make video calling from you Android or iOS device. In the past, the Viber app started as an application that provided text messages and voice calls. Later, it added a video calling feature but only for desktops. With the updated version of Viber app you can make video calls from your Android or iPhone 6, both local and internationally, of course. It works on PC to PC and also from PC to mobile.
The new Viber Version 5.0 is compatible with Android smart devices 4.0 or above and the new iOS 6. You can use it to share video calls between your desktop and a mobile. You can also make a call to a landline but this will cost you.
The new Viber app uses a Voice Over IP technology which can deliver voice communication and also multimedia sessions over the IP networks. The Viber app was initially designed for smartphones where the users could make free calls and send messages.
To use the new Viber app on your PC you must add your personal telephone number in order to connect to the system.
