How To Install The Viber IM Client On The Most Popular (64 Bit Only) Linux Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Viber is a popular instang messaging application running on Android. Like WhatsApp, Viber has video calling fuctions and allows the users to easily send text messages and photos, without needing to register. The developers have decided to make the application available for desktop operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

For now Viber works only on 64 bit Linux systems. The Linux version is still Beta, so don’t expect it to be bugless.

If you already use Viber on your mobile phone, setting everything up is easy. All you have to do is enter your mobile number into the Linux application, type in the authentication code you get to your mobile app and you’ll get all your Viber contacts available in the Linux application.
