Samsung will soon unleash its very own messaging service dubbed ChatON. This free service will allow the users one-on-one conversations, group chat, group messaging, and even allow them to share images, videos, voice messages, and contacts.
The service will be available in two flavours. First one is tailored for basic feature phones. It will support sharing of text, images, calendars, and contacts. The advanced version will cater to smartphone users. That means more features such as the Interaction Rank indicator that shows how active a user is on the service. Other additions include the ability to comment on user profiles and animated messages, which is nothing but a combination of scribbled text and audio.
The ChatON is expected be showcased at the IFA event and will go live this September across 120 countries and in 62 languages. Apart from Samsung's bada OS, the app will also be available for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and a bunch of Java phones. Moreover, the Korean electronics giant will also launch a web client that will enable PC users to chat and share files.
