KakaoTalk, Kakao for PC, Asian Messaging apps

If you’re using KakaoTalk for your Windows desktop PC, you’ll be happy to know that version has just been released, introducing a number of enhancements targeted at improving the connectivity between the mobile and PC as well as profile improvements and fixes.

The new KakaoTalk allows you to select or remove your Kakao accounts that have been registered on your PC when logging in. This can help improve security, and you’ll continue to know when your account is logged into via PC by way of messages on your mobile device.

The new version also allows you to opt to delete your profile photo and includes a fix to a problem that prevented your friends’ information such as profile photo and name from being sporadically updated. Another problem that showed the name of a chatroom invitee in place of the person who did the inviting has also been fixed.

Some UI improvements for Invite Friends have also been made, along with the addition of a button to the chatroom that allows you to view images you have received.

If you haven’t yet received the update, you can simply right click on the KakaoTalk icon in your taskbar and select Update or you can get the app with a fresh installation via the KakaoTalk website.
