KakaoTalk offers new group chat service for local users

KakaoTalk, the country’s most popular mobile messenger, launched a group voice call service in Korea, its operator Kakao said yesterday.

The so called “group call” service supports 3G, long term evolution (LTE) and Wi-Fi networks.

Kakao said up to five people can talk with each other using the group call service, which runs based on free calls dubbed mVoIP, or mobile voice-over-Internet-protocol.

Kakao said it is the first company in the world to provide a free mVoIP group call service running on three telecommunications networks. It is also an upgrade for KakaoTalk’s voice talk feature which was released in June, it added.

The group call service was launched in Japan on Nov. 16.
