    My parents don't have smartphones and from the "new technology" they're just using a laptop(Win 10). Viber will be very handy, considering that we live in a different countries. Is it possible to install it on a laptop without a smartphone? Bluestacks use to do the trick, but not any more. Any ideas?

    Have you checked here.
    Not sure if this is what you want but only available to Windows XP or Linux.

    Yes mate, but you have to sync it with your mobile account. Without a smartphone it's not possible.

    If you have your parents consent you can buy a refurbished android phone kind of cheap at some local stores in your area. You can just activate it for one month and maybe you can continue using viber but not completely sure.

    It cannot be done
    You cannot use viber without a smart phone

    You must have a smart phone with viber as an app on it and the phone has to stay active & the viber app running on that phone for the desktop version to work.

    Use Skype instead. That is cross OS & cross device
    you can use it on a phone & your parents can use it on their laptop

    Bluestacks use to work just fine for a few years. After the latest Viber update it stopped. We have a Skype but for instant messaging I prefer Viber. Texasbullet has a good idea. If I don't find free solution I'll buy a second hand smarthphone.

    Thank's guys for your help. Bluestacks works again (after update ) so I managed to install Viber without any problems.
