Viber Announces HD Voice Support Exclusively for Nokia Lumias

Viber has had a tough time when it comes to Windows Phone, as the app originally debuted without the ability to call. This is partly the fault of the operating system, but with Nokia’s help Viber will have full VoIP support which will allow users to make and receive calls over their data connections.

“Viber is also releasing a completely new version for Nokia Lumia phones running the Windows Phone 7 platform. Viber now offers Nokia Windows Phone 7 users free HD-quality phone calls and group messaging in addition to free text and photo messages. This version was developed in partnership with Nokia and is currently available exclusively on Nokia Lumia phones.”

The only downside of this announcement is that the new app won’t be available to you unless you own a Nokia Lumia phone. The app will be available in the Nokia collection for those who do have Nokia phones. I’ve used Viber before on my Android and found it to be a decent experience, but now that the app actually functions the way it’s supposed to on Windows Phone, I’ll have to give it a try again. Let us know what you think.
