Viber used to allow emailing chats to yourself in zipped CSV files, which in most cases was useless.
Now Viber backup is stored in iCloud or Google Drive with no access to the chats. You can’t read, print, share or do anything else with the messages. The only available option is to transfer the chat history to your new phone.
This article explains how to backup Viber messages with benefits:
