Viber has received a significant update on mobile, with version 9.6 bringing several new features and improvements. The Rakuten-owned app now has an upgraded architecture, which allows for a faster performance across the app. And yes, there’s also an in-chat translation feature, powered by Google Translate.
Viber version 9.6 comes along a shredded human interface experience, including bigger chat bubbles, larger photo thumbnails, and new message delivery status symbols. Previously, the app used to display either ‘Delivered’ or ‘Seen’ text below the text bubble, but it’s now changed to double check marks inside the bubble.
You’ll be able to make “crystal-clear calls,” according to the release notes, with Viber’s new audio and video technology. Another interesting new feature in Viber 9.6 is for storage. The app will allow you to set a preferred duration before the chat media is deleted (unless you have plenty of storage).
Viber’s new and super useful feature: in-chat translation. This new improvement from Viber is a big push toward engaging users within the app. In order to use the in-chat translation, simply tap and hold onto the text bubble, and choose ‘Translate’ from the list. This will translate the original text to your device’s system language. In-chat translation is available on Android as of now, while the iOS counterpart is yet to receive the translation feature.
