Samsung’s ChatON messenger app gets SMS and MMS support

Google recently added the option to view SMS on a device via the Hangouts app (which was earlier called Talk), a feature that had been requested by Android users for quite some time. Well, Samsung decided it needed to do the same for its own chat app – the Korean firm’s ChatON messaging app has received an update that adds both SMS and MMS support for Samsung devices on Android 4.0 and above.

Text messages exchanged with a user will be shown along with those sent over the internet in a combined chat list, though I was personally unable to see how this works since neither me or my friends ever use ChatON. The update is available on the Play Store and on Samsung Apps, though for now Samsung mentions that it works best on the Galaxy S III, S4, Note II, and Note 3.

Actually, if you read the “what’s new section” of ChatOn in Google Play, they say it’s only available for Germany and Brazil for now. I updated the app and I couldn’t find anything different and no option to send SMS instead of ChatOn messages.

Might be useful if my S3 actually worked but since the 4.3 update just using normal functions is difficult, Come on Samsung get your finger out and sort it ASAP.
