Team Viber announced the redesign of the application for Android and iOS. The latter gets an update right now, while fans of personalization and anchors will have to wait for a little. The update is significant – it affects the design and the very principle of work.
First of all, Viber now supports end-to-end encryption. Many messengers have already received this feature, so the innovation is not surprising.
Update for Android
Now messages will be delivered twice as fast as before. Because of this, with the update of the content of chat rooms, there will be no problems, and occasions to skip some question will be less.
The updates of the status of messages will also accelerate. By tradition, a check mark next to the text will confirm the sending of the message, while two will indicate the delivery of the message to the device of the interlocutor.
Color schemes of chats will become brighter, and the screen will hold more content. Getting acquainted with the content will also be more enjoyable – photos and videos will take up more space on the screen. Playing GIF animations will be smoother.
It is to be hoped that the Viber team has also worked on the quality of video messages. While they remain one of the weakest parts of the platform.
