KakaoTalk: Free Calls & Text is a great communication app to chat with your friends, send them text and voice messages, share multimedia files and perform free voice calls through a WiFi or 3G Internet connection.
So this is a messaging app similar to WhatsApp and Line, with which you can talk individually with a friend or make group chats, and also enjoy a VoIP service (Voice over IP), such as Viber's, and a voice messaging feature similar to Zello Walkie Talkie.
As it occurs in other free instant messaging apps, with this software you can only talk to the contacts on your phonebook who have also installed this app, no matter if they use Android, iOS, Windows Phone or Blackberry. First time you use this software, it scans your mobile contacts to automatically set your KakaoTalk's contact list. You can add other users by looking for their ID, sending invitation cards to your friends and saving phone numbers from a conversation. You can also import/export your contact list to different devices.
Besides free chatting and messaging, you can perform free voice calls to one or several friends at once. One of the best features on this application's VoIP service is that you can apply voice filters to your talking both in individual as in group calls, and talk with the voices of Talking Tom and Talking Ben, completely for free. And if you prefer to send a voice message instead of keeping a phone talk, KakaoTalk provides you a handy push-to-talk feature to use with your friends as a walkie talkie.
With this program you can also share pictures, videos, audio files, contacts data, documents and other resources with your friends. You'll find over 250 free emoticons, some of them animated, to make your chat conversations funnier with expressive and comical stickers. You can also choose between different free themes to customize your KakaoTalk and dress your conversations with the style that suits you best. This messaging app even includes 3 free mini games to play with your friends.
Other remarkable features of this software are, for example, the alerts you receive via push notifications to show you someone is talking to you, their message encryption system which helps you keeping your privacy safe, and a kind of thematic channel where you can meet some korean celebs and music stars from the K-Pop scene.
If you're looking for an alternative app to chat with your friends and family, send voice and text messages, share multimedia files and make free calls to your contacts, all for free through your Internet connection, and with lots of extra features, download this program for free to your Android smartphone and keep in touch and talk with the people you love in a really functional and funny way.
