    Hello everyone

    I just wanna ask anyone with 8.1 who is using Viber? Are you experiencing big battery drain? After I updated to 8.1 (even after the latest update). Viber drains like 25-30% battery per hour of usage. That really sucks ! I must charge my phone everyday, sometimes even twice. I am using Lumia 925.

    Before I charged him once for 2 days. Yes I disabled many apps running on background and other things.

    I am currently using this app mostly on my phone and the drain is so huge.

    I did a hard reset on my phone and it somehow fixed a problem I had with battery drain even after I added the latest update... I guess that's some kind of solution for you if everything else fails

    Yeah... I too have big battery drain when using Viber on 8.1.
    I think most chatting apps have the same issue on WP. I have the same issue with Whatsapp too.

    Do you receive notifications in Viber?
    Since I have 8.1 I don't receive notifications from Viber. Line & WA works fine

    Yes I do. But sometimes (not too often) I dont. So they are not 100% trustworthy. I often and go check manually If I dont got any message.

    I also noticed that notifications are more reliable with wi-fi. When I use data-plan I dont got them sometimes, fb messenger too.
