The latest update to Viber for iOS includes enhancements to chats.
There’s the new conversation gallery, which lets you see all of the photos and videos shared in a chat in one place. To view the conversation gallery, just tap the gear icon in a chat and select the option labeled Media. You can then see a gallery of the photos and videos from the chat, sorted by month.

More detailed information has also been added in group chats, allowing you to see who among the group chat participants have read and liked any message.
Viber has also been updated with improved search.
3D Touch and iPad multitasking
The new Viber update also adds additional support for 3D Touch. Previously, pressing the app’s icon on the home screen on an iPhone 6s or an iPhone 6s Plus brings up a shortcut for creating a new message. But now, there are 3D Touch shortcuts for accessing the three most recent chats. Still no 3D Touch support for Peek and Pop within the app itself, though.
The new version of Viber also features support for multitasking on iPad. On iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 2 or later, you can use Slide Over to quickly check Viber over another app. And on iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 4, you can use Split View to use Viber side by side with another app at the same time.
Get Viber and more
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, the new version of Viber is available now on the App Store for free, with in-app purchases for additional call credits and sticker packs.
