KakaoTalk for PC, KakaoTalk app, Kakao chats

After adding the “File Box” on November 24 and a few tweaks and fixes five days later, KakaoTalk for PC users have become quite accustomed to frequent updates. Kakao is continuing this trend with the release of version

The latest release add the ability to make your contacts or chat rooms “float” on the desktop, very much like Skype’s update for Android devices that’s been newly-released as well.

The new update also fixes a problem that would cause the program to crash when users would receive a sound alert for a new message. Kakao also disabled the ability to adjust the alert volume within the app for Windows XP users, likely due to the same aforementioned issue.

Other bug fixes and stability improvements were also quietly slipped into the latest KakaoTalk for PC update, which can be downloaded via your KakaoTalk desktop application (right click the Kakao notification icon on the bottom right of your PC screen and click Update) or by going to the KakaoTalk website.
