How to send an audio recording through Viber

Depending on the operating system used to access Viber, users take different approaches to organize the process of sending a music song to their contacts. Let's consider in order what can be done to do it from Android, iOS and Windows.


The users of Viber for Android, we can say, are not limited in the possibilities of sending files from the memory of their devices to other participants of the information exchange system. Up to five efficient methods are available on the device running the "green robot" for sending a musical song to other messenger participants.

Method 1: The Messaging Toolkit

If you store your music in the memory of your device and you know exactly which audio recording (and which directory it contains) to send to your correspondent on Weiber, proceed as follows.

    1. Open a chat in messenger with the recipient of the song. Click on the three dots below the text message field.
    2. In the menu that opens, select "Send file".. On the next screen, you will see a list of folders available for the application - navigate to the folder where the music file is saved. Find the one you want to send and tap its name.

Method 2: File manager

The following music submission method, like the one suggested above, involves manipulating an audio source file. It is known that there is no easier way to work with the files placed in the storage of the Android device than to use one of the "File Explorer" for this operating system, and such software can be used to solve the problem of the article title.

The following example demonstrates the actions performed with a file manager Google Files. You can download and install this solution from Google Play Store and proceed exactly as described below, or use the algorithm in another "Explorer". for Android.

Download the Google Files file manager from Play Market

  1. Launch the file manager and open the directory that contains one or more audio recordings to be sent via Viber.
  2. When sending a single song, touch the song name to start playback through the "Explorer". player. Then click on the icon in the lower left corner of the screen Share.If you want to transfer multiple media files at the same time, long press the check mark on the first send. Then, by clicking on the names of the other recordings, highlight them as well. When the selection is complete, press "Share". from the action menu that appears at the top of the screen.
  3. As a result of the above instruction, an area will appear at the bottom of the screen asking you to select how to send the files. While scrolling through this menu, locate the icon Viber.and then touch it.
  4. In the messenger that starts, you must specify the recipient of the audio composition. To do this, check one or more headers of the currently open chats or use the field Enter a name or number. and highlight the name of the other member or members in the address book.
  5. To confirm the sending of the audio recordings selected in step 3, press the button on the paper plane. This will cause the files to be sent immediately to the recipient.

Method 3: Player

Option "Share"that we use when sending an audio file with the above method, it is available not only in file managers, but also in other applications. In the interface of many Android audio players you can find an element to send a specific song, even through Viber. As an example, let's consider sending a song played by the popular AIMP player via messenger.

  1. Start the player and activate the playback of a certain song.
  2. On the playback screen, press the three dots in the upper right to display the action menu and select «Share ...».
  3. Click on the icon Viber. in the area shown «Send files ...». In the messenger that opens automatically, select the chat you want to send the song to by checking the box next to the header, or search and then select the recipient's name from the address book.
  4. Press the circular button "Send". and wait for the media file to be delivered to the recipient.

Method 4: Streaming service

If you use streaming services on your mobile phone, you can easily share a specific song through Viber directly from the music resource's client application. The nuance of this approach is that the recipient will not receive the audio as such, but the Internet address through which it is broadcast. In most cases, only those who have access to the system from which the track is "sent" will be able to hear the song or melody.

To demonstrate how easy it is to send recordings from online services via Viber, we are going to use YouTube Music, the Yandex.Music application for Android, and the VKontakte social network client.

  4. Next, a menu will appear to select the application or service through which it is possible to send a link to the music broadcast. Here you have to find the icon Viber. and click on it.In some cases, such as when transferring music from VKontakte, to bring up a list of possible recipients in which the messenger is present, you will have to tap "Plus"..
  5. Then proceed as in the two previous instructions in this article: select the recipient of the audio recording (or several) in the launched Viber, and then press "Send"..

Method 5: Cloud Service

The utility of storing your own music files in the memory of your Android device, with the availability of cloud services, is gradually becoming nothing. If you use one of the "clouds" and upload audio recordings to it, you have the simple possibility of opening access to the music to any other Internet user, and "granting" this access is easily possible even through the Viber messenger. We are going to demonstrate the practical application of the above in the example of Google Drive for Android.

  1. Install and run the application provided by the cloud storage service to Android users. Sign up for the cloud, if you haven't done it before. In the case of the Drive offered by the "corporation of goodness", log into the application using your Google account. More information: How to access your Google Drive account
