Viber is a messaging and calling app that’s simple, fast, and secure. It’s used by over a billion people worldwide and offers a range of features including free international calls, group chats, and more. Here’s how to install and create your account on Viber for Android.

First, open Google Play and search for Viber. Once you’ve found the app, tap on “Install” and wait for it to download. Once the download is complete, tap on “Open” and select your country and phone number. You’ll receive a message with a code, which you’ll need to enter to verify your account.

Next, allow Viber to access your contacts and wait for the code or call to come through. If you receive a call, the system will automatically detect it and move you to the next step. If the phone number is in use on another call, wait 1 minute and tap “SEND SMS” instead.

Once you’ve verified your account, you can customize your profile by selecting a profile picture and editing your name and birthday. You can also allow Viber to access your photos, media, and files, as well as take pictures and record video and audio. Finally, allow Viber to make and manage phone calls and access your device’s location.

With your account set up, you can explore the features of Viber. The Chats button allows you to chat with your contacts, while the Calls button lets you make calls. If you see an option to “invite” someone, it means they don’t have an account on Viber yet. If they have a video and audio call button, they have an account and you can call them for free.

The More button gives you access to additional options, including editing your profile, accessing settings, and more. Take some time to explore these features and get used to the app.

That’s it! You now know how to install and create your account on Viber for Android. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments below.
