There is a new free mobile messaging available to the Filipino netizens. KakaoTalk, Korea’s no. 1 mobile social app, launches in the Philippines today! Its FREE, its easy to download and use and is available on Android, iOS, Blackberry and Bada and Windows PC version.
KakaoTalk is a better replacement to similar apps because it allows users to send messages, pictures, videos, urls, contact details and schedule. It also supports voice call and group call with as much as 5 people. Currently, it has over 100 million users, with a maximum daily traffic of 5.2 billion messages as of early this year. Wow, that is so cool!
Key features that I like in KakaoTalk :
Group chat and multimedia sharing: Users can create group chat rooms with an unlimited number of friends in KakaoTalk. KakaoTalk supports sharing of text, photos, videos, voice notes, contact information and schedules.
Free 1:1 and group voice call: KakaoTalk offers both 1:1 and group voice calls with as many as five speakers. Features including Talking Tom and Talking Ben voice filters add fun and excitement to voice chat. KakaoTalk is also the worlds’ first to provide free group calls in HD quality.
Animated/sound/still emoticons and themes: KakaoTalk is the first mobile instant messaging service to offer animated emoticons and stickers, which users can include in their chat bubbles. KakaoTalk offers tens of thousands of different emoticons, including localized digital content in Japan and Indonesia.
Security: Kakao securely encrypts all messages to ensure user privacy and all messages are deleted from the servers after a minimal length of time.
