Q: Do you have an estimated time frame for the release of Viber for BlackBerry 10?
A: Viber for BB10, as announced by Blackberry is in development. We currently do not have a timeframe, but it should take less than the time it took us to deliver Viber for the previous generation of BB devices. Viber for BB10 will support Voice on day one as well as all the other features found in Viber for Android and iOS. While discussing Blackberry, it should be noted that we are still on track to deliver voice for the current BB devices.
Q: Is Viber looking to introduce special new features? In addition, many of our users were wondering about new Viber stickers. Is a new batch of stickers being planned for addition?
A: Viber will introduce new stickers with the next release of Viber. Expect far more stickers with the release to follow it.
Q: What goals has Viber set for the rest of 2013?
A: More features, more platforms, more users, more languages, more releases. Lots more. This is going to be a truly exciting year for Viber users!
There you have it, Viber will be coming to BlackBerry 10 very soon and will be packed with some impressive features.
