    I did the update too.

    Dear Viber Team, do you have any news in reference of this update or if the VoIP is coming soon?

    Thanks in advance for all your efforts to bring Viber calls to BlackBerries!

    Cheers from Barcelona! ;-)

    The Viber is the Justin Bieber Vibrator (Viber) made by Research In Motion. Get it? I'd laugh but it is a terrible joke.

    Long time ago, I read once from the developer of IM+, that is, Shape Services, they were unable to implement 2-way (full duplex) voip on BlackBerry due to platform limitation. They made IM+ for Skype but the voip was only half-duplex so you had to talk with the other person a la walkie-talkie fashion. There are many silly/idiosyncratic limitations with the current Java-based OS that probably stem from the fact that the current BlackBerry OS was never created from the ground up to be a smartphone OS. I am not holding my breath over viber having full duplex voip capability any time soon.

    Full duplex capabilities are the responsability of the VOIP provider and it's infrastructure. A Full Duplex VOIP engine for Blackberry does exist, created by fgmicrotec. If Viber were to license it, a Full Duplex VOIP client could be released asap.
    They're not licensing it, nor are they releasing a VOIP client for BB7. It should be obvious now to everyone wanting this that they will release an exclusive BB10 client with VOIP capabilities only. It's easier to code and they're not limited to the OS limitations as there are now in OS7, not to mention the RIM reboot with BB10 is bound to attract more press and having a VOIP client in that early phase when the press is still interested will benefit them more than releasing a client for a dying, outdated platform.

    If you want it, get BB10.

    Today they introduced the BBM Voice Chat, hope they could make the same with Viber.

    It seems that the VOIP is getting ready for BlackBerry!!!

    Please, Viber Team, tell us something soon.

    yea that was my first thought too, but then I don't use Viber to talk to BB contacts, I use it to talk to non-BB contacts so VOIP on Viber would still be great for me

    The same thing happened to me. I think it is because viber is bbm connected. Nothing more.

    i wonder if viber was not allowed to do Voice until BBM launched it?!?!

    or even prevented viber to get it at all..

    I think that what happened to both of you is that you have the option "Start Viber when BlackBerry starts" enabled. If you disable it, maybe it won't appear the Viber Screen when you start your device.

    I can't access the BB Beta Zone as I'm spanniard so I can't check this option right now.

    Cheers from Barcelona! ;-)

    True! Now we can access the Beta Zone from Spain!!!

    I have seen that the BBM Voice Beta has quite some problems so I haven't tried yet. If I have some time I'll do it within this week.

    Anyway, dear Viber Team, it's been many days since you didn't tell us something. Any news at the front with BBM Voice on the market?

    Cheers from Barcelona! ;-)

    Ugh. that would really suck as a decent VOIP app is the only thing left that I want on my phone. If BBM7 voice chat can work why can't Viber?

    Hi Guys,

    I know that we've been facing a lot of negative press to Blackberry, but I hope this lighten things up (unless if I'm not up to date XD)

    While I was browsing the Viber site, found this.

    Viber for Blackberry | Viber Support

    I hope it arrives with BB10 XD. I assume this is for the BB Smartphones. Though I wish they made one for the Playbook XD.
