Samsung’s ChatON app crosses 100 million users


ChatON is a decent cross platform chat client developed by Samsung and is available on all major platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry). This chat client has now surpassed the 100 million users mark, which is a remarkable achievement for Samsung and a clear sign of its dominance in the mobile industry. The app comes by default on all Samsung smartphones, which is a huge bonus. Although it might not be as popular as Whatsapp or Viber, ChatON is certainly catching up with people. In fact, at 100 million, it now has more users than BBM which has active users of close to 60 million at this moment. But that could change drastically with BBM set to hit Android sometime soon.

The service provides a seamless experience where users can access ChatON through PCs, Samsung feature phones, and all the major smart phone operating systems: Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone,” said Samsung. What Samsung doesn’t mention though, is that the number accounts for all the users who have signed up for the service so far, and not active users. So it’s almost obvious that a large majority of those 100 million users don’t even use ChatON anymore.
