New flat design and a few social-friendly features

Samsung has just pushed out an update to its ChatON messenger app, which has streamlined the interface and added a few new features. While it may have been popular, ChatON was far from a beautiful app before today — the new interface changes that considerably with a notably flatter design that keeps the white, grey and orange color scheme but adds in some "holo" design elements.

The "My page" feature has been improved as well, letting you change the background image for your page to give it a more personal feel. You and your friends can now share media to each other's pages as well — from your own uploaded media to content from Samsung's LIVEpartners.

If you happen to be one of the 100 million ChatON users out there, be sure to go grab an update to the latest version. It's a big update that is worth taking a look at.

Samsung's ChatON messenger receives interface refresh with v3.0 update


Be great if they redesign their shitty gingerbready touchwiz system apps like the contacts and messenging apps, with holo UI.
Hell, I think they're using their exact same app code from gingerbread, because these app have laggy scrolling by default and I have to force gpu rendering in the developer settings to fix that.

This is coming from a Note 2 owner so I don't know what's in the S4 and Note 3.

Don't worry Jay many of us skip the articles sometimes and just post off of the title.

Yeahhhh .. Is a Chaton user counted because the app is on the phone?
100,000,000 installed apps ... 100 actual users?

Too many chat apps out there. I stick with Facebook Messenger and Hangouts because everyone I know has one or the other or both. Plus I can continue conversations on any computer.

I actually use it all the time, and it works very good. My kids are 7 and 9, and apps like Facebook, Twitter, or even Textplus are a bit much at there age so my wife and don't allow them to use it.

But with ChatOn installed on their individual Galaxy Player devices, and our Samsung phones, they can text directly with with mom and dad along with some other really cool features.

It's a great app for communication between family members who all gave Samsung devices.

I just want hangouts to be like iMessage. Chat, sms, face time all in one without having 2 different apps.

SMS isn't the same as instant messaging. You can't send a message directly to a phone number. Not yet at least.

Chaton sucks it never made the difference because samsung lacked innovation in this app surprisingly.

I am a fan of whatsapp and wechay5 on my s4 I cant delete it without root but on HTC is better laid never installed.
