Samsung's ChatON messenger for Android now allows you to delete the messages you've sent
Samsung has just procured an update to the Android version of ChatON, its homebrewed cross-platform messenger, and the latter now comes with some completely new and several further-improved functionalities. Most of these were showcased at MWC 2014 and now they are already a part of the app. Let's delve in a little and see what Samsung has implemented!

Among the most notable new perks in ChatON is that it now allows users to send files up to 1GB in size. Up until now, users could only send significantly smaller files. There is a twist, however – this feature is only available in select countries at the moment and allows users to upload files just 5 times a day.

Another pretty interesting new trait allows you to delete a given message in a one-on-one chat conversation. This feature does its magic even if the recipient has already read the particular message.

The amount of participants that might take part in a group chat has also been increased from 200 to 1001. And last, but definitely not least – ChatON now allows users to share their real-time location in a chat message via Glympse, a location-centric service.


It is currently unknown if any of these features will arrive on the ChatON apps across the other supported platforms.
