    It's true - our general plan is to have Viber for BB10 released alongside OS10.2

    @juacas -

    Viber is compatible with OS6 devices, but only CDMA devices (you can check whether or not your device is a CDMA device by contacting your cellular operator).

    About the rest of the OS6 devices - as much as we would like, the design of the BBOS 6 does not make voice possible. Implementing voice on BBOS 6 would result in 5+ seconds audio latency. Far more than is acceptable for a voice call.

    For now, unfortunately there is no way to incorporate Viber's calling services on Blackberry OS6 (all non-CDMA devices).
    So all you flips talking smack and defending thr viber reps about what I had said earlier need to smarten up and realize that they were simply sedating us and playing us for fools by claiming that they are working hard and that it will be released soon for the past three months
    . Os 10.2 is expected to be released in the fall, so how credible is viber. Look I am not just trash talking I am just simply saying that they weren't transparent enough.

    Viber is one of the greatest apps I've ever used, hopefully it will come to BlackBerry 10 on time :^)

    What is the reason for releasing along side 10.2? It is just a estimated release timeframe or it needs 10.2 to work? And what do you mean by releasing along side 10.2? The nature of OS updates for blackberry is so fragmented across the globe that not everyone gets 10.2 at the same time when it comes. So when do we expect to see it on the app world? As long as users are either using both 10.2 official or leak? Or everyone gets 10.2 official, which could be 2014 for the US peeps and i pity them, that users could only see it on the app world.

    Point is, be more specific!

    If I were to take a guess, 10.2 will allow for headless apps, something Viber desperately needs.

    Now, that wouldn't stop them from releasing a version now for people to use, but hey!

    Apps that receive a push from a server do not need headless apis as a module of the app is always live in the HUB currently. Any notification from the HUB can be used to open the app. This is how Whatsapp or Skype are running even when the app is closed.
    I doubt if Viber is waiting for the headless APIs and it is more a concern with the time they need for development.

    Beat me to it. And I agree, thats why I am wondering why 10.2?! If it is their ETA on release, let's just hope they deliver because I am tired of waiting or seeing "soon". I bet M--canack can relate LOL.

    Viber, Tango, Whatsapp, Skype and the like... we keep talking about what, when, how and why....

    BBM have it all and more.. needless to say, going cross platform is critical.
    I would be surprised if BlackBerry is placing this at the bottom of their to-do list....

    If you drag down from the top so the Android bar appears, click on the 3 dots and the option is at the top called more options. You can set it to view all contacts in there.

    I've noticed that mine only picks up numbers that are added to the phone and not what's sync'd in from other address books. That may have something to do with it.

    The device needs to be restarted so that Viber can work even when closed. Use the most updated apk and it should work fine.

    When you say along side 10.2 is it the official release by BlackBerry or we can have it on advanced leaked versions?! We already saw a couple of 10.2s out there but not that stable!

    As our CEO explained, it is "likely" at this stage. The reasons for the release of Viber with/alongside 10.2 are technological reasons, rooted in development/fixes in 10.2 itself (that Viber is "waiting" for).

    However, nothing is final yet. We will do our best to see what can be done to bring it as soon as the technological situation permits us.

    Give the viber guys a break people...
    Bashing won't help.
    As you know software developing is a process...
    You can always side load or develop yourself if you can't wait...

    Makes sense, headless apps come with that update ( apps running without the need of active frames on all the time). And Viber simply needs that.

    Maybe u have a point. But I don't see any other similar apps needing headless such as whatsapp, skype, bbm, etc.

    Skype is an Android app, Viber will be native.

    Whatsapp is native. I don't think the delay has got anything to do with headless API since Viber can be integrated with the hub. Either it is a delay Viber is trying to cover up with an excuse, or it might be some bug that needs to be fixed in the OS.

    PS: Native or Android, the headless APIs behave in the same way for all.
