Viber adds new features such as inline YouTube playback and last seen timestamps in latest update


Viber has rolled out a new update which takes inspiration from WhatsApp and Telegram. The update, version 6.8.2, brings inline YouTube playback and last seen timestamps, apart from bug fixes and performance improvements.

With this update, users will now be able to play YouTube links directly from the conversation window. You can expand to full screen, minimise to work on something else, pause playback and also move it around the screen. The last seen timestamp, on the other hand, is pretty similar to the one on WhatsApp which tells you when your contact was last seen on the app. Additionally, the app brings with it the regular bug fixes and performance improvements.


Here is the complete changelog:

  • Watch YouTube videos in-chat – Play videos right in your chats or in minimized view while you do other things on your phone!
  • Updated online status – Know when your contacts were last seen on Viber
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements are made on a regular basis

The update is currently live on Play Store, and is said to be rolling out to everybody across all regions.
