Communication app Viber released the latest version of its desktop app, Viber Desktop, today. The latest Viber Desktop will feature a new holiday theme, accessible by clicking on the Santa button in the app. Also, many paid stickers from Viber mobile will be available for free exclusively on Viber Desktop.

This comes hot on the heels of the release of Viber Desktop 4.0 2 weeks ago, which brought the latest updates from its major mobile update to the desktop. Chief among the updates is support for the Viber Sticker Market that significantly expands the number of stickers available to Viber users. Viber Desktop is also now available on Linux for the first time, in addition to Windows and Mac.

Other updates include:
  • Drag and drop – send photos by dragging them to the app
  • ‘Seen’ status lets you know when your messages have been viewed
  • Ability to receive video messages
  • Ability to view photo and video descriptions
  • Video call improvements

The new release follows closely on the latest mobile update of Viber. “Viber Desktop is a critical part of our strategy to provide users with a seamless communications experience across all of their devices and platforms,” said Talmon Marco, CEO, Viber, adding, “Updating Viber Desktop with the Viber Sticker Market gives our users an incredibly fun and personal way to communicate with their friends, no matter which device they’re using.”
