Viber already makes it easy to keep in touch with your family and friends, but now it’s going a step further with the introduction of two new features.
In its attempt to add “a certain emotional connection” that humans crave, Viber is introducing Instant Videos. Instant Videos seem to be the perfect solution for times that “sending a quick hello” is just not enough.

Instant Videos are short video messages you can record and then send instantly to your friends. Recording them is simple. Hold down the instant video icon to record, and release to send. They are now available on Viber 6.5.5 for both iOS and Android.
This update doesn’t just bring Instant Videos. Chat Extensions is another great feature. Viber says it “saves you at least 10 steps when you want to share something from your phone.” You simply search for content on the web, and share it. All you have to do is tap on the @ icon in your sharing menu, and pick your chosen extension.
But that’s not all!

With Chat Extensions, Viber also gave their emoticons a “brand new look.” They have been redesigned for “minimalism and charm.”
