Some of the cool new features include the ability to send messages between a group of friends, all for free of course. You’ll be able to share links, photos and invite more friends to join.

The sound quality has been improved for the new version with a new voice engine.
More added features include customizing the background to a conversation. You can assign whatever background you like. Your contact list is now even easier to use as you can use photos for each name, making it really quick to find the person for whom you are searching. As well, as you are scrolling through the contacts screen you’ll be able to see who has recently joined Viber. The app always remains on, is extremely easy to use and is always free. The only charges you may have to worry about are network data charges. This is arguablly the best VOIP app for iPhone users.
