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.

[box type=”warning” align=”aligncenter” ]Before you go on and download Viber for PC, I highly recommend downloading a FREE backup software such as My PC Backup.[/box]


  1. The very first step is to download the maps galaxy 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 Paltalk software you just downloaded, and try making a test call. Call the default contact if you will. If you get your Mic to work with this software, it will work with Viber as well.
  3. Once, you have the video chat software Paltalk working, 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” ]Download Emulator for Windows[/button][/tab][tab][button color=”white” size=”big” link=”” target=”blank” ]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 Raza,

      Where do you see this error?

      • stweif on January 11, 2013 at 4:52 am said:

        hi, this one also bothers me, it keeps telling me that bluestack has detected application error and i should try again, what am i suppose to do? thank you :) and the program seems rather slow, is there anyway i could speed it up? thanks again. :D

  4. i keep getting do not reconize your graphic card i use nvidia

    • Fan of Viber on December 31, 2012 at 8:50 pm said:

      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.

  5. thank you so much for the application . its workinig the only problem is
    arabic language not supported .

    • Fan of Viber on January 3, 2013 at 12:08 am said:

      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.

My friends have been asking me to download this so they can call me right away as they don’t live in the US. I tried adding a contact but that’s not working either. Please help! :(
