Steps to Download Viber For PC

Since you are here, I assume you are looking for Viber phone App on your laptop or desktop computer. However, you might be wondering if there is a version of viber for pc.  Let me break this news to you that Viber has not released a version of their app yet, although they seem to be working on the PC version of Viber. However, it is possible to use Viber on Computer PCs and Mac.

How to Download Viber For PC

Downloading Viber on a PC/laptop is very easy, thanks to the android emulators. Companies such as Bluestacks and Youwave have advanced the basic android emulator and this has made it so much easier for others to download android apps for PCs. However, there are a lot of errors, such as Bluestacks sound and graphics errors, that make it difficult to use Viber as a complete working app for PCs.

However, I am going to show you how to download Viber on a PC. Follow all my steps and I promise you will have fully working Viber app on your laptop – both PCs and Macs.

  1. The very first step is to download the pc backup software. I have done some experiments myself and this is equally important step and should not be skipped. Luckily, the software you need to download is a free one Download from here[facebook]
  2. The next step is to install the software you just downloaded, and take a backup. Even if you fail to get Viber for PC for the first time, you can reuse this to get it the next time around.
  3. Once, you have the backup done go ahead and download the android emulator. It is available for both Mac and PCs.[tabs type=”horizontal”][tabs_head][tab_title]Download for Windows PC[/tab_title][tab_title]Download for Mac[/tab_title][/tabs_head][tab][button color=”white” size=”big” link=”” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow” ]Download Emulator for Windows[/button][/tab][tab][button color=”white” size=”big” link=”” target=”blank” rel=”nofollow”]Download Bluestacks for Mac[/button][/tab][/tabs]
  4. Once you have installed Bluestacks, it will add a folder named Android Apps – If you are using Mac you will see it in your Dock. If you are using Windows, you will see it on Desktop.
  5. Open Bluestacks android emulator. If you are using Windows, go to search and search for Viber. If you are on Mac, you can find a good tutorial on how to download Viber for Mac here. You will have to install Viber via going to a website for Mac, so I recommend you watch the Video tutorial.
  6. Find Viber and install it.
  7. You will need to setup Viber as you would on a smartphone. Just follow on-screen instructions and you will be fine. If you do not get the SMS from Viber to activate Viber software, you should try the calling option to get your Viber activation code and it will work without fail.


With these steps, you should be able to get Viber on your PC with fair ease. If you do not get Viber installed using these steps or if you are stuck somewhere, just let me know and I will help you getting it working on your PC or Mac. Just mention what OS are you using when you leave the comment.


    • Dear Del Boy,

      This is unusual as NVidia graphics card are mostly supported. Can you tell me which graphics card do you have and if you have updated your drivers by visiting NVidia’s website.

    • Dear Subro,

      I am glad you were able to use Viber PC. The reason why Arabic language is not working is a shortcoming of Bluestacks and not Viber. Bluestacks team said that they have added Arabic functionality in the latest version (try updating if you are using previous version) but people have complained about the support. It seems Arabic text is not coming out right. Let us hope it will be fixed soon.

    • Subro:

      1- in blauestacks download ( GO Keyboard ) applicatin then install it follow the instructions
      2- after installing it open it and choose arabic it will ask you for downloading arabic dictionary agree
      3 now select arabic from keyboard . enjoy

    • Thank you Mohamed. Although I cannot read the language, Google translator tells me you said “wonderful”. So, thank you once again.

  1. Thanks for wonderful effort. I did the steps above , but I got a problem with hearing the other side. I can’t hear the other side but the other side hears me very well. I have already tested the microphone and the speaker using ooVoo with no any problem. Could any help please ?? many thanks.

  2. I can’t install any app to it, it says network connection error. So it is not detecting the network, though off course I have one.
    I have a 64bit Win 7. I tried to run the emulator with admin rights, still not solved.
    Any suggestion how to resolve it?


  3. i have installed bluestacks,but it takes a lot of time to install viber,i waited for more than an hour but it was not installed

  4. when i search viber and i click on it and click install, it saids No App Found. Please Check Network Connectivity! when in fact i am online. instead of it installing, it will say No App Found. Please Check Network Connectivity! and it literally has an ! at the end of the word connectivity.

      at first you have to add new contacts to synchronizing them . if you are new user you are synchronizing nothing

      but if you have names in another application viber can take them from.
