- Can send media files
- Translates messages in a foreign language
- Conventional interface
ChatON is a messaging app developed by Samsung to send free messages to your friends. It’s similar to WhatsApp, but with additional features.
Messages and more…
After installing ChatON, you’ll need to register a profile using your phone number or your Samsung account. The app will then import your contacts so you can start chatting with the friends that are also on ChatON.
Just like Facebook, ChatON offers the possibility to write status updates (140 characters max.) on your personal wall, and your contacts will be able to add a comment.
For those who love emoticons and customization, ChatON offers different images to change the background of your chat conversations, and emoticons and original stickers to add to your messages.
With ChatON you can also make VoIP and video calls to your friends. And, unlike other messaging apps, it lets you cancel messages sent by mistake.
The app also lets you send pictures and videos, audio files, geographic location and more, such as broadcasting lists to send the same message to up to 1000 of your contacts. Last, but not least, it includes a feature to translate messages, which can be very useful if you have friends who write in a foreign language.
Easy to use
ChatON’s design is sleek and well-organized, very similar to other popular instant messaging apps.
For those who want more than a messaging app
ChatON is a good alternative to WhatsApp and LINE. In addition to its easy to use interface, it includes a wide range of features, VoIP, and a personal wall similar to the one we find on social networks.
