Is Viber's online status accurate?

Viber's online status is not 100% accurate. Always try to check with the person to whom you are going to call if they will be available at a certain time. When it's marked "online", it means that the person is on Viber right now.

What are other options?

If you'd like to be notified when someone comes online, you can use third-party apps, such as Chat Track: Online Tracker and Online Monitor. You'll have to download and install the app and link it to your Viber account to see real-time updates about your contacts' statuses.

Does Viber show online while on call?

No, when someone is on a call, Viber shows this contact as offline.
