Learn how to back up and restore Viber chat history on Android devices.

Viber for Android

Viber is one of the most popular messenger apps over the world, especially in some European countries. It connects over 800 million people on all desktop and mobile platforms. Viber for Android is absolutely the version most people are using.
Viber features in video and audio calls on Wi-Fi or 3G network, but the sticker is also a big attraction for users. Except for on some countries that block Viber (yes, it is true. Don't get confused if your Viber connection is bad in these areas), the network call is pretty satisfying.
Another feature that makes Viber different from WhatsApp is the Public accounts. You can chat with the businesses and brands you care about and follow their account for the exclusive content they share. Actually, this is quite similar to Wechat, the most popular social app in China. See more alternatives to WhatsApp.
