An update published to Viber this morning has finally brought Android Wear support to the popular messaging app, allowing users to read and reply to messages on their Android wear devices.
It’s great to see an app as popular as Viber continuing to develop their product for users and keeping up with the latest technology and market trends. At the moment they have truly cross platform functionality offering clients for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Nokia, Windows & Mac Desktops.
I actually asked about Android Wear support just a week ago on Twitter – in hindsight, Viber’s response makes perfect sense.
@prymal81 We are working hard to add this feature and hope to have it available soon!

The changelog shows a couple of other enhancements to the app as well
• Become an Admin and manage your group chats; edit info and delete participants
• Android Wear support – send and receive messages from your watch
• Clearer contact info – see a person’s name and photo when you interact, even if they’re not saved in your contact list
• Public Chat enhancements
If you’re yet to check it out, head over to the Play Store and grab Viber for your devices today.
