I've absolutely had enough of this app and am telling everyone I know to switch to WhatsApp. Calls constantly get dropped or don't go through. When I call someone and they pick up it immediately ends the call forcing me to call a second or even third time. Sometimes I'll answer a call and it'll say "Answering" but it never does. I've updated the app. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it. I even switched phones and nothing. Other people I know are having the same issues. It's beyond ridiculous.

The only chat app with easy translation, but... Messages often hang on the receiving end, and other group chat apps I've used never had this problem. It happens WAY too often and it's getting tiresome. Not much use sending messages when they take their good ol' time making it to the other person... Also, I really don't like having to long press messages to translate them, and I don't know why you folks do this. It's unnecessary and it would be much quicker to just tap it to translate.

Hello! Try: 1. Use different internet connections (wi-Fi, mobile network). 2. Update Viber and your phone to the latest version. 3. Clear the cache and delete the Play Store data. 4. Restart the device. As for the long press to translate feature, we appreciate your suggestion and will take it into consideration for future updates.

New phone and when I try to get the SMS it takes days to get and times out. When I try to call it tells me I don't have an account. WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram all set up with no issues. Looking at the current reviews there's no need to ask me to contact you about working out the problem since it looks as everything on this app is falling apart. Nice of Google to make it look like you don't have a massive amount of one stars.
