KakaoTalk messenger now boasts 100 million registered users
Ever heard of KakaoTalk? It is one of those cross-platform messaging apps that let you chit chat with your buddies over the internet instead of using SMS. You know, kind of like WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook Messenger and the likes. And even though it has been around for about 3 years or so, the platform has already amassed a user database exceeding the 100 million mark.
That's a pretty huge number no matter how we look at it, although KakaoTalk is still way behind WhatsApp in terms of popularity. The latter recently announced that it was being used by 250 million people, processing up to 27 billion messages on a daily basis.
In case you've never tried KakaoTalk, it is available on iOS, Android, BlackBerry OS, and Windows Phone. The app allows free phone calls and group chats to be made over the internet, and supports themes as well. KakaoTalk even has its own Android launcher called KakaoHome, which works like Facebook Home (which nobody seems to like), but it is made for KakaoTalk users, of course.
