Step by step tutorial on getting Viber on your PC

As you can see, we put up a lot of hard work to create videos, posts, and even doing the research in helping you get Viber for PC, please spread the word about our website by clicking one of the buttons below.

  1. Download Bluestacks from here — Bluestacks is the advanced android emulator — and install it.
  2. Search for Viber on Bluestacks
  3. Double click on the Viber sign
  4. let it download and install
  5. Once it is listed on the top, double click on it to open it.
  6. Now, let Viber setup itself on your PC
  7. Enter your phone number when prompted
  8. You will receive a SMS/text message that will contain a code so that you can confirm the ownership of that number.
  9. We did not receive any such SMS. The alternative is to click on the link under the SMS option.
  10. You will receive a call where they will give you your code to use.
  11. You can hit back and enter this code in the box.
  12. It will ask you if you want to add your contacts on your phone to Viber. Since you do not have any contacts as of now, just say no. You can also say yes if you want to add contacts to bluestacks later.
  13. All your contacts, those who have your number saved in their contacts’ list, will receive a notification that you have joined Viber.
  14. Those contacts will also be added to your contacts list automatically.
  15. You can now enjoy your Viber for PC. You should share it

We have tried this method of getting Viber on a PC, on a number of PCs with different operating systems and it seems to work just fine. If you cannot get Viber for PC working on your windows PC, let us know by posting a comment and we will help you with it. Hopefully this method will work flawlessly for you.

    Hi Admin,

    “Answer” Button doesn’t work when i receive call.

    Please Advice,


  13. adorisable

    Thanks so much for this tutorial! I have successfully installed Viber. However, it has crashed a couple of times already.. So I am wondering, how are ooVoo and Viber related? (I already installed and signed up on ooVoo). Do I need to be running them at the same time? How do I connect them together? or do I?

    Also, I, like John right above, am also having trouble with the “answer” button. It does not work when I receive a call either.


    1. moon

      me too, “Answer” button does not working… please help

      You can use Google Voice but then you need at least a Google Voice account to receive text.

    1. admin

  18. djhurt

    what i did is visit the bluestacks site and get the installer not the tin-install. once you installed the emulator just follow the instruction above and that’s it you can use now for calling your relatives for free…if there’s someone here won’t be able to call try to message maybe i can help you to use this good alternative tools for pc…thanks also to the founder of this apps

      ooVoo seem to have some DLL files that are necessary for Viber/bluestacks as well. Most of the PCs have it and you don’t need it but a lot of the PCs are missing that. So to be on the safer side, we recommend installing ooVoo and make a call to test that your system can in fact support Viber for PC.

  20. Kevin

    I can’t send messages. It says ‘Sent’ but not ‘Delivered’ which means the message was not delivered to the receiver. Any fix for this?

    Thanks and appreciate your great efforts here.

    1. admin

      Dear Musaab,

      You can use Viber eveywhere – except where governments have blocked it. You can provide a number for anywhere in the world and you will be able to receive a sms or phone call on that number. Hope that helps you solve the problem.

  47. Sikkandar

    Dear Sir, I have installed viber in three devices one in Nokia E72 mobile phone, one in Nokia C7 mobile phone first. I have tested sending sms messages between this two devices and succeded via same WIFI connection. Later I installed my laptop the Bluestack software then the viber using Bluestack activated too. Now I’m having problem sending sms from Nokia E72, which status came out “Not sent”. Even the other device Nokia C7 couldn’t get my sms but when I typed using Nokia C7 to send sms to Nokia E72 , it’s status came “Sent” but did not received in Nokia E72.

    I opened viber on my laptop using Bluestack app and tried to type sms message to send to my Nokia C7 device. The connection between both devices are working.

    But why the connection between Nokia E72 and Nokia C7 not working. How could I solve the problem……

    Please help me……..

    1. admin

      Dear Sikkandar,

      I will suggest you to uninstall and reinstall Viber on your phones. That will take care of the problem.

  48. Ricky

    1. admin

      Dear Yasin,

      You need to have that much space in your hard disk to install this.

  53. unknown

    The bluestacks can’t be downloaded.

    1. admin


      I tried installing it and it worked just fine. Same thing with the installation issue. May be you need to give it a little more time and it will install. Please let us know if you cannot install it.

  54. unknown

    Does it really take much time to be installed? It seemed it’s not yet installing even though the window says “installing bluestacks”. Thank you for the reply. :))

  60. Azeem Amin


    I tried following every instruction you offered, I tried Bluestacks but it crashes on startup, I even bought YouWave although nothing seems to work even if I installed ooVoo. What am I doing wrong? I’m running Windows 7 Premium Home Edition on a Alienware m17x gaming laptop with topnotch specs, so meeting the requirements certainly can’t be the issue. 15 fricken dollars for something that doesn’t work is not what I invested my money in. What a waste. Disappointed.

    1. admin

      Dear Azeem,

      I am not sure what is wrong as we have tried Bluestacks on windows 7 home premium and it works like a charm. Try installing as an administrator. If everything fails, create a new account and try installing from that account.

      By the way, the software is free to download. Where did you spend your money?

  61. phoesein

    אני רוצה להתקין את VIBER וכל הזמן עולה לי OOVOO ולא viber. אני ממש לא יודע איך לעשות שלהוריד אצלי למחשב את viber. אשמח אם תעזור לי אדון. תודה.

  64. eddacker

    I have just followed the instructions to install using the BlueStacks option. This android emulator for PC worked perfectly on my 4 year old Dell Win7 x86 machine. Following on viber installed and configured. I received my install code via SMS no problem. The program did not find any contacts and I did not use the number pad, but I used the numbers across the top of the keyboard. Seems to have installed effortlessly. I did not install ooVoo, but I plan to use video conferencing so, perhaps, I will need to.
    Cheers, eddacker

  65. bhing

    good day!just want to ask wen i install bluestacks in my pc it cant be done and there’s a note that says “application requires at least 2 gb physical memory”..thanks

    1. admin

      Dear Bhing,

      Can you send us a screenshot of that error? Were you able to install ooVoo just fine? It might be that bluestacks requires that much memory now a days.

    good day admin! i’m having the same problem. i’m half way installing bluestacks then a note pops out “application requires at least 2 gb physical memory” . pls help.

    1. admin

      Dear Rmsian,

      This is the new requirement. Did you download the msi version of Bluestacks or the exe version? The MSI version, if I am not mistaken, did not have any such restrictions.

  73. gajala


  74. gajala

    pleas send early our code

    1. admin

      You mean you did not get Viber’s code? I guess you need to try again. Usually Viber team sends the code in no time but we have heard that they sometimes don’t get your request. Ask the Viber team to send you your code again and it should work.

  75. gajala tarannum

    how will download this viber please explan me

    1. admin

      Dear Gajala,

      Just follow the instructions step by step and you should be fine. Let me know if something doesn’t work.

  88. Alexis

    Hi, I am trying to downlaod this for my PC. I have been using Viber previously on my Android phone, and it seems to have installed but I have got stuck in a cycle of my PC and phone asking me to input my number and input the SMS code. It seems to have wiped the version of Viber I have been using (and all of my message threads annoyingly) and when I input my number and code on PC it says it is trying to sync. Whi;lst that is happening my phone asks me to also inoput my number and code (which is a different code to the one the POC will accept). Once i do this my PC tells me it has failed to sync and asks me to re-enter my phone number and code! I have done this about 10 times now! Something’s not working I presume?

    Hi and thank. I install Viber on my computer with Windows 7 and appear Viber icone on my desktap. When i press on it appear this mesage :
    “An internet connection is required to activate your Viber account. Check your connection and try again.”
    I don’t know where is this connection? and how i active it?

    please pardon me if i have mistakes

    thank you very much

    1. Muke

      Hi Mohamad,

      What you need is an internet connection. If you can connect to Internet (open a website) just fine then something went wrong with the installation or your firewall is blocking bluestacks. Try running it as an administrator (right click and select run as admin). Hope that helps.

  106. achraf

    thanks a lot !!

  107. M.H

    I’ve downloaded viber for PC but I get this error:
    An internet connection is required to activate your viber account.
    though there’s no problem with internet connectivity :(

    1. Mike

      It is a firewall issue. See if you firewall is blocking the connection from Bluestacks.

  108. Dhimmy

    Hi Admin,
    I have viber on my computer, however, I can’t text some of my contacts on it? Why :S ?

    1. Mike

      Hi Dhimmy,

      Are you sure that those contacts have not deleted Viber? Do you get any message or are those contacts simply disabled?

  109. zenith

    Hi admin

      Do you have a firewall installed? Try disabling that. It may help.

    2. Mitko
