    Today my L640 received update for Viber.
    It's version 6.0.
    Video calls are not implemented yet (icon shows 'soon').
    Everything else works and looks much better now.

    Well done!

    Hi,

    I am also on Viber 6.0 for Windows 10 Mobile since yesterday, and I am having mostly positive impressions so far.

    My only issue is that my live tile counter for new messages in the Viber live tile is not displaying new messages at all, thus my lock screen counter for new Viber messages is not displaying anything, and neither is glance screen.

    My Lumia 950 is vibrating on incoming messages, banners are also displayed correctly, everything else is working fine. But in case I don't see the banner or don't hear / feel the sound or vibration, I am not aware of new messages, I have to wake up the device and look in the action center...

    Anyone else having this issue?

    And also, where does one report issues and provide feedback to the Viber team for Viber 6.0 beta?

    Sorry, I don't have a link other than the regular one, I am participating in the beta test of the Viber for Win 10 Mobile Universal app, and my app got updated automatically.

    Can you tell if there is an option to directly reply to message from banner? (feature that SMS has?)
    Also is file sharing present?

    What makes viber any different from say Line or Skype? Line is awesome and has tonnes of emoji and stickers, you can make free calls etc. What makes viber any better? Do people do video calls a lot? I usually don't do video calls. I could see it being handy in a business environment but is it used in the consumer space a lot?

    Hi, there is no possibility for me to answer directly from Action Center - I have not paid attention if there is the possibility to answer directly from the banner itself.

    It seems that right now only files and videos as well as voice messages and contacts can be shared..

    The live tile also displays the picture and the last message of the last person who wrote you.

    The notifications in the Action Center as well as the banners are presented in a far more attractive way than they were until now.

    Hopefully the new message counter gets fixed soon, this is my only gripe so far - I reinstalled the app but it didn't fix the issue.

    The difference is, that where I live about 99% of the people use Viber. Some are using additionally the FB Messenger, and that's about it - nobody is using WhatsApp, and almost nobody has ever even heard of Line. I don't do video calls either, I am just used to Viber as almost everybody I know :)

    Sooo, I don't know where to provide feedback, so I'm providing it here:

    Today I received an update to Viber, no jump in versioning so far, but I don't care, because notifications started working finally!
    Well...at least sort of...
    Now I am receiving updates on the live tile counter and thus on the lock screen.. So at least I don't have to wake up the phone to see if a new message has arrived.
    The problem is, that when I receive e.g. 3 messages, the in-app counter shows "3".. But the live tile - and thus the lock screen - most of the time displays "99" - which seems to be the maximum count.
    Closing the app does not fix this. Sometimes on a new message the counter shows the correct number of new messages, just to start displaying "99" on the next received one..
    Well, but hey, at least the live tile and the lock screen now do show SOMETHING at all :)

    EDIT:
    Restarting the phone did not fix the issue either - live tile and lock screen are still displaying 99 new messages, although there are no new messages in the app itself. Let's check the behavior after I have received a real new message..

    BR

    I hate this update on my 950 xl. Bluetooth and speakerphone functionality it's broken so the app is useless for me as I call daily over Bluetooth while driving. And no, you cannot reply from action center or banner and notification on tile and lock screen is broken as it says have new messages when I don't. Is there any way to roll back?

    I'm using Viber 6.0 since yesterday. The following changes in comparison with the previous versions are annoying (imho):
    1. The Viber live tile is always showing the last message I've received even after I've seen it. In the previous versions the text/sticker disappeared from the live tile after opening the app and reading it and it was better so. Now the live tile literally "freezes" showing the last message and only refreshes after receiving a new message.
    2. The message counter in the bottom right corner of the live tile won't refresh either after reading the messages (until receiving a new message).
    3. The notifications on the lockscreen also do not disappear after opening the app and reading the last post(s). It looks like I have always some new messages. This is really annoying, because it makes me wake up the phone.
    4. Altough the setting is activated, the new messages won't show up in the Action center like it was in the previous versions.

    I have the same observations and I do hope that Viber continues to iron out the bugs.

    And just to add to others comments, here are mine.

    I can't pivot left and right between conversations - contacts - pubic chats. I have to reach out all the way to the top just to switch the view. I read somewhere that this may be a limitation of the tool that was used to make the app. In any case it's a slight inconvenience.

    The pivot issue I guess is the same with the Windows Central app where you can't pivot between the article and comments.

    My contacts online status takes awhile to update, it could show "online moments ago" when the user is actually online.

    Also, so far I still cannot post a new or update my review in the Store.

    My two cents

    Viber has just introduced cloud backup feature on both Android and iOS, but sadly not for W10M.

    They have been working on this release for so long and clearly they could have implemented it along the way but they choose not to...
