With BlackBerry Messenger all set to enter the Android and iOS domain, Samsung has made an announcement, which claims that its instant messenger service ChatON has crossed 100 million users mark globally. The platform was unveiled in October 2011 and was downloaded 50 million times by May this year.
Samsung has attributed its success to two factors- one because it is available on all major platforms and comes pre-loaded on all major Samsung Galaxy devices like S 3, Note 2, S4, and Note 3.
Samsung wrote on its official blog, “ChatON has experienced steady growth in India, China, and the United States, and is becoming increasingly popular in Europe and the Middle East. The service was designed to ensure that users across the globe can communicate in multiple languages – ChatON currently supports 63 languages in major countries of the world.”
ChatON supports 10 regional languages and the company will take it up to 13 by the end of this year.
