How to install Viber on PC no need Smartphone verified account?

Viber has just released 3.0.0 version with many advanced features (such as allows for sending video messages, the new design,…) and also launched Viber for desktop on Windows OS and Mac OS. That means now you can text and receive messages on both your smartphone/tablet and your PC desktop.
But if you don’t have a Viber account which verified (active) on smartphone/tablet, you can’t use Viber on your desktop. It’s really a bad luck for who aren’t using smartphone or tablet.

This article, I will tell you how to install Viber on desktop without a Viber verified-on-smartphone/tablet-account. The summary idea of the article is running viber on a virtual machine and get the activation code on a real phone number, then using that phone number to active Viber desktop. And that means you don’t need to have a smartphone or tablet, what you need is:
1. Google account
2. A valid phone number
3. An Android virtual machine (BlueStacks, Android SDK Manager, AndroVM,…)

I recommend using BlueStacks just because BlueStacks is a simple and strong Android virtual machine but there is no need to config the software.

Install Viber on BlueStacks

Once you have BlueStacks installed, on the main screen of BlueStacks, click on the Search button and type “Viber” on the search box and hit on the first result (named Viber : Free Calls & Messages)

      Hi Amir!

      Sorry for my late in reply. My Bluestacks is still working to install viber as my above tips, but if it doesn’t work for you, let’s try AndroVM instead of Bluestacks. You can download AndroVM at http://androvm.org/blog/download/
