PC version of kakaotalk is coming in June to target a market of PC messenger.

According to Kakao, a company to run KakaoTalk, the PC version is officially released this month after demonstration service.

One company official of Kakao said “We are finishing the work reflected by requirements from beta test engineers so that the PC version can be presented during June”

In order to use the PC version of KakaoTalk, the PC should get device certification and register the internet account. A notification message is transferred to mobile KakaoTalk after logging in the PC.

The PC version of KakaoTalk mainly concentrated on function that can aid to input KakaoTalk into PC. The PC version brought almost intact the mobile version such as friend list feature, chatting window, mark of reading and so on. That is, it can be said there is no notable new function in the version.

Kakao selected 10,000 of betatest engineers targeting ordinary people in last March, and 210,000 people applied for the position of the task, which showed intense interests for the PC version of KakaoTalk

Whatsapp, Line, kakaotalk and wechathave been leading world market of mobile messenger. except for kakaotalk, others are still concentrating solely on mobile version. It is very interesting how Kakao’s strategy that extends its range to PC based on mobile can affect future of the messenger industry.
