viberLet’s face it, we’ve all received calls from people that we wish we could block, and while that might be a feature available on other VoIP apps, unfortunately such a feature was not available for Viber users on the Windows Phone platform, but the good news is that the app has been recently updated with some new features, and call blocking is one of them.


Viber for Windows Phone has been bumped to version and it will allow users of the app to block any number the wish, so if you have that annoying friend or ex that just can’t let go, well we suppose blocking them on Viber is one remedy, although there’s no guarantee that they won’t try to contact you via different channels!

The update will also bring about in-chat notifications when you receive new messages. It will also introduce new emoticons and has also improved the app in general. We haven’t tried out the latest update for ourselves so we can’t speak to how big of an improvement has been made, but if you’re a Windows Phone user, you can always head on over to the Windows Phone Store for the free download/update.
