Viber For PC : How to Downalod and Install Viber on Computer | Viber PC App

Why don't we have any official Viber for PC application yet. Why is there any need for such tutorial on Viber PC application. These questions certainly need to be answered by the Viber team. We talked about their mobile voip application for iPhone, how you can use Viber to make free mobile calls. Since it has only launched its iPhone application, Android Application and Blackberry App (with some limited features), the wait for viber app for computer is getting longer!

Viber is certainly one cool application that everyone should have in their iPhone. Almost all those having a smartphone, use internet on their mobile phones. So, what if everyone start using 3G and thus, Viber on their smartphones. Then you can easily talk to each other for free and make free calls. That's certainly possible now :)

But what about those not having a smartphone, but still want to talk to their friends (on their iPhone) using Viber. I think it should soon launch their PC app. Please share your views on this. Do you really require Viber PC application or are you satisfied using viber only on your mobile!

Also a lot of people while on their computer, want to access everything from pc only. Who doesn't like to do the job of mobile from their laptop itself (off course vice versa is also true). I guess Viber should soon officially launch its PC application. But till the time it launches its official app for PC, lets see a way by which you can use Viber on your PC.

Viber for Android Mobiles

Viber has launched its Android app as well, however its computer application is still not officially out. Viber people keep on saying that it is still under works and will officially be out very soon. I would rather figure out a way to use Viber on my PC then to wait for it! 

Download and Install Viber for PC using Android Emulator

Before we go into details on how to install viber for pc, lets see how do we get this working in concept. Google Android allows you to run an emulator for PC, which is a simple application running on your PC and the applications works on PC as if its a android mobile.

You can run any android application on this emulator. So we are suggesting for now (till viber for pc is officially out) is to install android emulator on PC and run Viber application on this emulator.

What do you need to run Viber on PC using android emulator :
  • Google Android account, this is basically an google account (gmail works). 
  • Install android sdk on your PC.
  • Download Java on your computer if not previously installed. Follow this link.
Going step by step : Viber for PC requires Viber Android app on emulator, android emulator on PC require java on your computer.
  • Step 1 : Install Java on computer
  • Step 2 : Install android emulator.
  • Step 3 : Install Viber apk on Pc using emulator.
Before proceeding make sure you have android emulator on PC.

Update : Well initially I asked my readers to search on internet installing android emulator on PC. Many people were able to get the android emulator installed on their PC. However they were not able to download Viber android app. So once you have installed android emulator, all you need is Viber Android Apk. Download Viber Android Apk for Free : Download link.

It turns out people have faced difficulty in finding good tutorials for that. So let me post some tutorials. Tutorial on how to install android emulator on PC : so as to Download and install viber app on PC : Follow this link

Update : Well, a lot of our readers appreciated our efforts when they got this thing installed on PC. However few readers were still finding difficult to install Viber app on their computer.

Step 2 : Android Emulator on PC
  • After Android OS emulator has been installed. Click on "Tools" Option, and select "Manage AVDs".
  • A new window will pop up. On the right hand side (as explained in image), click "New". AVD is simply Android Virtual Drive (or android emulator drive on computer).
  • In the target option, select the OS package which we just download. In this case "Android 4.1", select installer package size as "512". Click "Create AVD". Accept everything (ok) in the pop up window.  
 Creating Android Image on Disk

This way you have got your Viber for PC app installed on your PC. Lets see the how to get this viber app running on your computer :

Verifying your Viber PC Account

So as to Viber running on PC and start making free calls.
  1. Download and install Viber app on PC using android emulator as explained above.
  2. When asked for your number, enter your regular mobile number, then confirm. 
  3. An SMS message with the code will be sent to your mobile phone. 
  4. Take that code and use it in your viber pc app. Viber will then be activated, and you're good to go. This means that if anyone dials your number on Viber, you will get the call on your PC.
Again, If you still face any problem installing Viber on your laptop or your computer, please let us know. We will try our best to help you out. We have tried ourself and both SMS and calling works great!

I would appreciate if any Viber official can let us know about the status of their pc app. Lets just hope that Viber PC App is officially out soon.

PS : If you are still not able to figure out a way to get this thing working, then don't worry. We have another tutorial (another method) on it. Its a more simple method (tried and tested) to use Viber application on computer. CHECK THIS POST.

size - 512
Built in :- HVGA

I had added pic here of this all

April 17, 2012 at 6:05 PM

Install the android apk as mentioned above!

April 27, 2012 at 9:16 AM

i setup emulator but i can't install viber from my pc to emulator.
How it is?

April 30, 2012 at 2:15 AM

Unable to install viber on Android emulator, it downloads fine but the error comes up "Application cannot be installed" Tried installing using adb but comes up with this error "Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY]" Do you know which library is missing or how to fix this issue?

April 30, 2012 at 2:06 PM

Same Here when installed with abd.exe :[INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY]"
and also when downloaded on Android could not be installed!

May 3, 2012 at 10:54 PM

i think it is better to wait for some time to luch the app viber for pc and then we will be able to instal the app driecdetly befcuse this proceedure is abit complicated and most of the time not wroking better to wait for origanl apps

May 7, 2012 at 6:13 AM

yo, this is not going to work! The reason why you get [INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY] is because the viber app needs to use google map libraries, i presume its because you can share your location via messaging on the app. Installing google maps on the emulator will still not solve your problem, you need to manually copy two files from
to /system folder on the emulator using adb push, unfortunately this does not work as you get the error message "read only filesystem" or "out of space" even though adb says its rooted it just does not want to copy them over. Apparently you can remount them in a way which it will copy but ive had no luck. It's not worth the effort, the tutorial provided here is rubbish, it shows you how to install the emulator, but doesnt show you how to install the apk

May 9, 2012 at 4:42 AM

I downloaded SDK and AVD
I downloaded the Viber APK file from you link...
how do i install it? i mean its not a aplication.. where do i put it? how does it work? help me please

May 9, 2012 at 7:01 PM

May 11, 2012 at 8:57 AM

"Well if you are still facing any difficulty in downloading and installing viber pc application, then please let us know."

You have pleanty of people here that is letting you know that the Viber APK cannot be installed....

May 13, 2012 at 5:33 PM

Installed BlueStacks, then installed Viber on Lenova ThinkPad. No problem with sending text, but voice calling does not work. I can call the person with Viber installed on their phone, and I can hear the person on the phone through my PC speakers or a headset plugged into my PC, but they cannot hear me over the headset microphone or the built-in microphone. Audio tests of the hardware shows everything to be OK. Any suggestions? Thanks!

But by changing the "Target" to "Google APIs (Google Inc.) - API Level 15" in AVD I was able to successfully install viber, tough voice call doesn't work for me, only text messages.

May 27, 2012 at 5:29 AM

Can you please help me? I have installed the emulator, Android 4.0.3 and downloaded viber.apk but when I press on it from the slide down window, it says 'Unfortunately, the process has stopped' and wouldn't install. I went to Downloads and clicked install from there, but after a bit it says 'Application not installed' I have been trying again and again for one whole night. Can you help?

Thank you.

June 29, 2012 at 10:42 PM

would you please tell us how to change Target to Google APIs? Thank you.

June 30, 2012 at 12:37 PM

After running Android Virtual Device Manager click on "New" and select the "Target" to "Google APIs (Google Inc.) - API Level 15" in "Create new Android Virtual Device(AVD)" dialog box to create new a new AVD. Start the new one which will help you to install viber.apk successfully.

July 3, 2012 at 11:34 AM

I have installed Android v4.1 as stated by up in the writeup above.
Please let me know what needs to be done to make it functional.
Awaiting a quick reply.

I request you to kindly send my a reply ASAP.
Awaiting your answer.
Thanks in Advance!!

March 9, 2013 at 6:39 PM

Hi Arun,
Apologies for delay in response.
If you are able to see the settings, then you must have been able to see the wifi settings as well. You simply need to enable this.
Moreover, if you finding this tutorial difficult, we recommend a more simplified version of this tutorial :
