Kakao has announced that it has added Arabic language support to its popular messaging app for Android as of today for users running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or higher. The app will support a reverse UI that will allow text to run right to left.

The addition of Arabic marks the 15th language supported within the service, which is certainly impressive and provides the application a wide reach, which should come in handy for those interesting KakaoTalk conversations that will undoubtedly arise.

KakaoTalk is also available in English, Korean, traditional and simplified Chinese, Indonesian (Bahasa), Russian, Vietnamese, Thai, Italian, French, German, Turkish, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The app received the Kakao Lab this month on the Android platform as well and is currently used by more than 150 million users worldwide according to Kakao.
