How to Save Viber Photos and Videos to iPhone Camera Roll

Viber, by default, stores pictures and videos sent via the app to the Photos app (Camera Roll). This is the default feature but there might be cases where you disable the thing via Viber → Settings. → Media → Save to Gallery.

When you install Viber, the system asks you if you want to give access (of Camera Roll) to Viber. If you canceled this, irrespective of what you choose at Save to Gallery in Viber Settings, the photos don’t get saved to Camera roll.

    • We’re waiting for a word/update from the developers so that videos get
