ChatON for Windows 8
When you are traveling or when a friend moves abroad, keeping in touch with them no longer seems as easy as before, as you can no longer call them, send a SMS or go out for a walk together, so you need to get creative and find new ways of communication.
ChatON for Windows 8 can provide you with a new way of chatting, especially since its counterparts can also be installed on Samsung smartphones (no matter if they are running bada OS or Android), iOS devices, BlackBerry handsets or Windows Phones ones.
The application can only be run on computers running Windows 8 or 8.1, so you need to first upgrade your OS then download and install this utility.
Also, you need to create a Samsung account, then enter your username and password within the login section. The advantage of having such an account is that your data can be synchronized across your devices so you do not need to manually import your information when you install the mobile version of ChatON.
You can explore existing contacts or add new entries by entering a buddy’s phone number or Samsung account. All contacts are sorted alphabetically, so you can easily locate a certain friend and strike a conversation when you feel like it.
Additionally, you can explore your previous chats with ease, so as to re-read the messages you exchanged with someone.
In terms of customization, you can modify the background colors and bubble style as you see fit, along with the font size. You also get the possibility to select a custom image and use it as the background for your chats.
All in all, ChatON for Windows 8 can help you keep in touch with friends all over the world, provided they have a Samsung account and are using this app or its mobile counterparts.
