Samsung has announced a new version of its Chat On cross platform messaging application that comes embedded with a micro-social networking service called Trunk.
So with the new Chat On 2.0 version, which has its inherent messaging capability, users can post on other users’ profile. The posts can be texts, images and videos which then can be shared among friends and family. Along with that users will also have the option to comment on the photos and videos uploaded by users.
The Trunk service is however not an alternative to the popular social networking Facebook but at least is a step towards the direction in creating something bigger out of Chat On rather than just positioning it as a chat client.
Sometime back there was news that Samsung might also add video calling facility to Chat On messenger but as it seems the plans are on hold for some more time or maybe Samsung will reveal it during the Consumer Electronics Show happening next year.
The new Chat On application also now allows users to chat with five others through multi-screen feature, which by far is only allowed by Google Talk.
The service will also enable users to share content posted on the micro social networking and share it on popular social media websites such as Facebook and would also allow users to come and comment on posts right form Facebook for better social media integration.
The service will be rolled out to devices in the days to come and we certainly hope it to add some new life to the Samsung Chat On platform.
