How to Send Videos on Viber

Posted September 3, 2018 by Leomar Umpad in Android, Apple iPhone, Apps, Viber

Sometimes, images are not enough when you want to share one excellent experience. Pictures appear to be just a preview of the actual moment, they might speak of a thousand words though, but I say videos are more convincing and true-to-life. This article will teach you how to send videos on Viber.

Today’s generation, as we all know, are more involved on social media. People tend to spend most of their time trying to look good in it in the hopes that reality would come close to what their virtual profiles are suggesting. But as much as people would want to share about hashtag “how awesome the adventure was” or “how great the party is,” it would be more convincing and appreciated when it had been captured as a video than as a photo. And as this problem arises, social networking sites and even messaging applications rose to the need of the netizens of sharing their captured videos to the world.
