Viber, the leading mobile communications platform offering free messaging and HD-quality phone calls, announced that it will provide Nokia X device users with a version of Viber that is at parity with Viber’s latest version for Android. The app will be pre-installed on Nokia X smartphones.

Nokia released the long-rumored Android-powered Nokia X smartphones at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year. The Nokia X version will be available immediately in the Nokia Store.

“Working with Nokia is a natural step towards bringing Viber to all platforms including Windows Phone and S40.” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber. “This strategic partnership will help us provide Nokia users with a great messaging and calling experience enhanced with photo sharing, stickers and other Viber functionality.”

“We believe that great innovation is enhanced through applications, therefore we made sure to offer many of the most popular applications on our new Nokia X family of devices,” said Bryan Biniak, vice president, Developer Experiences at Nokia.

The app will be available to demo at MWC 2014 in Barcelona. Viber claimed to have registered over 300 million users in 193 countries.
