Softonic review

Message friends internationally

KakaoTalk is the perfect app for chatting with someone no matter where they are.

It is difficult to talk to friends overseas through many communication apps. The cost of international calls can quickly add up and instant messaging is usually specific to the app.

What KakaoTalk does differently is connect itself to a user’s phone number to allow for text chat that looks and feels like SMS, but costs nothing. By using the phone number rather than proxy service, users are able to chat without starting a bloated messaging app.

KakaoTalk also supports group chatting with an unlimited number of friends, so users in separate countries can have the ability to talk with one another. In tests from an Android phone to iPhone 4 from Berkeley, California to Seoul, South Korea, each message arrived within moments of sending through KakaoTalk.

Image attachments also loaded quickly. The only issue was the quality of a short voice memo in KakaoTalk. The quality sounded a little grainy and it was slightly difficulty to understand what was being said.

KakaoTalk also supports a small amount of visual customization, mainly for backgrounds of the chat screens, but there is not much else for users to change.

KakaoTalk is an impressive app because it is simple to use, and the ability to chat with friends and family worldwide is a huge plus.
