Viber Pulled From Some Markets? Working on Update? (update)September 25, 2012 No Comments
Recently, thanks to Nokia an updated version of Viber made it onto the Windows Phone store that added HD voice calling. Now judging from a bit of experience with the application and more importantly the feedback we got from readers, the voice feature on the app wasn’t working according to plan. Calls were going through but the caller could not hear a word (in some cases).
It looks like Viber is on the case though as some folks are now experiencing even reaching the app on the store. Here in the US, the app shows up in the WP Store but it does not for other users around the globe.
Stay tuned as Nokia/ Viber fix the problem and get the application back in the store for all to download.

There should not be any special problem finding Viber for your device. Please try to contact Windows Phone (or Market Place) support for more information on this.
There you have it! The Viber team is working on an update and the app should be readily available in all regions. Anyone still having issues downloading the application?
