ViberBB-3.1Viber has released a new version of its IM app for BlackBerry devices which brings a raft of new features to the platform, such as a ‘seen status’ indicator so you know when the recipient has read your message.

Other key improvements include the ability to send images in chats, new privacy settings, custom location sharing and a revamped interface. Oh, the company said it also squashed a few bugs, too.

Viber is available to download now for free at the BlackBerry App World store.
