How to set up Viber on Your Tablet or iPad

Viber, also known as the Viber App, is an online messenger application. You can download and install Viber on your Android or iOS device.

Viber offers all the services, such as text messaging, calling, video calling, document sharing, voice chats, emoticons, and stickers.

Now you can easily sync your tablet with your phone or make the tablet your primary device.

There are several potential benefits to setting up Viber on your tablet or iPad, depending on your individual needs and usage patterns:

Larger screen: Enjoy bigger video calls and easier viewing of messages and media on your tablet/iPad compared to your phone.

Multitasking: Multitask seamlessly between Viber and other apps on your tablet or iPad, making communication more efficient.

Multiple device flexibility: Answer calls and access messages even when your phone is away or inconvenient to use.

High-quality calls: Experience potentially better audio and video quality on tablet/iPad calls due to larger speakers and microphones.

Immersive media experience: Enjoy photos, videos, and GIFs sent through Viber on a larger screen for a more engaging experience.

Gaming accessibility: Play Viber Outland, a casual card game integrated with Viber, on a bigger screen for enhanced gameplay.

What is a primary and secondary device?

The primary and secondary devices that are linked to your Viber account are both referred to as such.

With Viber on your phone, the tablet becomes a backup device. Instead of using Viber on your phone, you may switch to using it on your tablet instead. It is possible to connect your tablet to a computer as a secondary device after activating the tablet.

Set up your tablet as a primary device

Choose this option if you don’t want to install Viber on your phone.
To set up your tablet as a primary device:

  1. Download Viber on your tablet from either Google Play (Android) or the App Store (iOS)
  2. Open Viber on your Tablet
  3. Enter your country and your phone number
  4. Tap Continue
  5. Confirm your phone number
  6. You will receive an activation code on your phone*

You’re ready to use Viber!

Set up your tablet as a secondary device

If you wish to continue using Viber on your phone and add your tablet as a secondary device, select this option. (If you have two tablets, you may use one as your primary device and one as a backup.)

To set up your tablet as a secondary device:

  1. Download the latest version of Viber on your phone.
