Boasting over 1 billion users worldwide, Viber is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished alternatives to WhatsApp. Features like video/audio calling and fun-loving group messaging make it spot on for seamless communication.
To prevent your photo library from being cluttered, Viber doesn’t automatically save media on your iPhone. However, if you like to store the shared stuff for a keepsake, you may want to download photos and videos shared through Viber chat threads on your iOS device. Let’s learn how to get it done!
How to Save Photos and Video from Viber on iPhone
Step #1. Launch Viber on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, tap on More button at the bottom right corner → tap on Settings.
Step #3. Next up, tap on Media.
Step #4. Up next, you need to turn on the switch for Save to Gallery.
That’s pretty much it! Going forward, clips and pics will be automatically saved to your photo library on your device.
Later, if you wish to stop downloading media to your photo library, come to this same setting and toggle off Save to Gallery option.
On this same screen, you can choose to automatically delete media after a preferred time. Simply tap on Keep Media and select the time period.
Besides, you also have the option to prevent the app from auto-downloading photos on the cellular network and even restrict data usage. If you are using limited bandwidth, make sure to take advantage of these features.
Of course, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp are more popular. However, Viber is not too far behind and does have almost all the tricks to entice users.
One of my favorite features of this app is the Dark Mode (More button → Settings → Appearance) as it makes chatting with friends more convenient in the night. I wish WhatsApp also offered this feature (pretty much like Messenger ) sooner than later.
