You’d think Samsung would just boast about cranking up 100 million users on its ChatON messaging platform and leave it at that, but that didn’t happen, and the Korean manufacturer has given ChatON a major upgrade to match the recent milestone. The update brings along a new flat interface that gels better with Google’s design guidelines for Android, and there are a couple of new features as well.
These features include the option to change the background of the My page section, ability top upload images, videos, and location information on other profiles via PostON, and sharing of news from LIVEpartners to your ChatON friends. There’s also a fix for Samsung’s Push service (the service that gets those messages to you in real-time), so it should work better for everyone post-update.
Go ahead and grab the update from the Play Store. Remember, ChatON works with non-Samsung devices as well, so if you’ve been wanting to try it out, well, now’s your chance to do that through a much-improved interface that doesn’t remind you of iOS.
