Windows phone OS is often seen as an app deficient platform, but it is also the fastest growing operating system. Further bridging the gap, Viber today announced Viber 4.1 for Windows Phone bringing “Viber Out” calls to the platform for the first time.

Viber Out is a service that allows Viber users to call any phone number at low rates. You can call landlines and mobiles, even if they are not Viber numbers. This is not free service like VoIP calls on several chat messengers. You have to buy Viber Credit to avail this service.

The service price varies from country to country and is much cheaper than what you have to pay cellular operators for similar phone calls. With the release of Viber Out, Windows phone users will now enjoy broader connectivity across several platforms.

The new update also includes several other features like Sending video messages, Sending multiple photos at the same time and Hands-free Bluetooth support. If you are a Windows Phone user, you can download this new updated Viber App from Here for Windows Phone 8 and 7.
