Earlier this week a rumor about Samsung shutting down their ChatOn present follower in unprofitable regions had leaked. Samsung now strictly addressed a gossip and says ChatOn will continue to be offering to consumers worldwide yet any stop or shutdowns. The ChatOn is a cross-platform present messaging service, that means it doesn’t usually duty on Android, yet also on all other smartphone handling systems including Blackberry, iOS, Android, Bada and Windows Phones. Last year they also combined SMS and MMS support so they could contest with services such as Hangouts and Viber and is pre-installed on all Samsung smartphones and tablets. In Apr they reached 200 million users that compared to their foe like WeChat (600 million) or WhatsApp (over 500 million) is unequivocally not that much.
Samsung stepped into a present messaging with ChatOn utterly late in a game. WhatsApp launched in 2009 and Google Talk (now famous as Hangouts) was initial expelled in 2005. Samsung didn’t recover their use until Oct 2011. It didn’t offer anything we haven’t seen before, solely for evident interpretation options in a discuss bedrooms and animation messages. Besides people already have their favorite present messaging app commissioned on their smartphones and if one chairman installs a opposite IM service, a whole round of friends have to implement a new app. So it is only not practical.
ChatOn competence unequivocally be unprofitable in some regions of a world. People simply have it since they bought a Samsung device. we used it spasmodic when we owned a Samsung smartphone for discuss with friends who also owned a Samsung. Since Samsung though, we have not commissioned it on any other smartphone and we haven’t seen other people doing that either. The ‘200 million users’ competence also only impute to users who bought a Samsung device, purebred ChatOn and never used it again. It would be good to see if Samsung expelled a genuine numbers of how many people indeed use a use on a daily basis. This would assistance to brand where it unequivocally is underperforming. Is Samsung only too unapproachable to acknowledge better and close down a use in some regions for good? Since it is a biggest smartphone manufacturer in a world, that only competence be a case.
