KakaoTalk is different from other free chat applications in that it offers features not typically found in free chat services such as music and video sharing. With KakaoTalk, users can send and receive free SMS messages to nearly all mobile numbers, as well as send and receive free MMS messages and even use the free VoIP service. In addition, KakaoTalk provides many of the same features that are available with other free SMS and free MMS applications; this includes the ability to send and receive free voice mails. KakaoTalk has a number of unique features compared to other free messaging or communication applications. These include:
KakaoTalk has received a lot of positive feedback from its users, with most reporting that they have had a lot of fun using the service. In addition, many users report that they are enjoying the service so much that they would consider purchasing a KakaoTalk account as soon as possible. The service is also said to be very easy to set up and use, especially for those who do not have much experience with messaging or using mobile phones. KakaoTalk does however have a large service fee, which may put some users off as they are used to free SMS services that offer similar features for far less cost.
