[Daum Kakao] Secret Chat Mode and Decline Invites Feature Now Available Secret Chat Mode and Decline Invites Feature Now Available on KakaoTalkOffering Users Even More Privacy and Chat Options[Seoul, South Korea - December 8, 2014] Daum Kakao (co-CEOs Saehoon Choi and Sirgoo Lee), today introduced Secret Chat mode and Decline Invites features for KakaoTalk, adding even greater privacy and protection to the popular mobile messaging platform. Available upon updating to the newest version of KakaoTalk, the new features provide users with increased options on how communications are carried out – and with whom – resulting in a more satisfying chatting experience.[With Secret Chat, Users Offered a Higher Standard of Privacy] Secret Chat mode is a new type of chatroom that employs end-to-end encryption on all messages exchanged within the chatroom. Secret Chat ensures heightened confidentiality of user conversations by providing end-to-end encryption, where the decryption key for chat messages is stored in the user's device making the messages only readable by the users involved in the conversation. Since the decryption key is stored only in the device, other parties cannot access conversations through any outside point—even through servers. There are two ways to begin chatting in Secret Chat mode. Users can press the menu in the upper right corner of any 1:1 chatroom and select Secret Chat. Or, they can also open a chatroom by inviting a friend using the chat bubble with the plus sign in the “Chats” tab. When only one friend is selected from the list, users can select the mode of chat they want: Regular 1:1 Chat or Secret Chat. Once a chatroom opens in Secret Chat mode, the chatroom remains open, even when the user quits and restarts the app, allowing for continued conversation. The Secret Chat mode is currently available for 1:1 chats, with a group Secret Chat mode expected in the first quarter of 2015. [Escape Unwanted Chatrooms with Decline Invites Feature] The update also includes a Decline Invites feature for group chats, allowing users to decline all future invites to chatrooms they no longer wish to participate in. The feature is expected to enhance user experience as it provides users with more autonomy and self-control over which KakaoTalk chats they wish to participate in.The decline invites feature can be found under the “Settings” menu in the “More” section located in the upper right corner of any group chatroom. By pressing the “Leave and Decline Invites” option, users are able to permanently leave the chatroom and not be re-invited back. Brandon Park, who oversees the KakaoTalk Service department at Daum Kakao, said, “We’re seeing a growing interest in digital privacy from our users, and the decline invite feature has been a popular feature request.” He continued, “We are offering even more options, both in levels of privacy and involvement in group chatrooms, so users can enjoy KakaoTalk in a way that is comfortable for them. These new features reflect our users’ needs and feedback, and we will continue to develop features to enhance their overall user experience." Secret Chat mode and Decline Invites feature will be available first for Android OS users with the 4.7.0 version update, and an update for iOS users is soon to follow. [END] # # # 2014.12.08
[Daum Kakao] Daum Kakao Launches Real Emoticons for KakaoTalk Daum Kakao Launches Real Emoticons for KakaoTalk – video clip based emoticons! [Seoul, South Korea - November 13, 2014] Daum Kakao (co-CEOs Saehoon Choi and Sirgoo Lee), today launched Real Emoticons (realcons) on KakaoTalk, a new kind of emoticon that turns 2 second video clips into emoticons for use on KakaoTalk. Realcons were developed as part of KakaoTalk’s continued efforts to add even greater enjoyment and value to the user’s chatting experience. Daum Kakao has been at the forefront of introducing new trends to mobile messaging, starting with the introduction of the digital item store as a content platform, to expanding the type and genre of emoticons to animated emoticons (anicons), emoticons with sound (soundcons), and now, emoticons that are more “real”(thus “real”cons) than reality. The first set of realcons was developed as part of an exclusive partnership with Girl’s Day, a popular four-member girl music group in Korea. The 24 realcons feature Girl’s Day members Mina, Hyeri, Yura and Sojin and include a wide variety of fun and useful everyday expressions. Each realcon perfectly captures the essence and personality of each Girl’s Day member, adding a fun, new dimension to KakaoTalk chats. It’s almost as if the Girl’s Day members are speaking on behalf of the users. In addition, Mina and Hyeri show off their versions of Kakao Friends Neo and Apeach’s signature dance moves, a special gift to Kakao Friends fans around the globe. Heather Hyunjoo Yeon, the director of KakaoTalk Digital Items Store at Daum Kakao said “Emoticons have grown to be more than just images. They have evolved to become a tool that helps enrich communication between friends and family. Understanding this, we at Daum Kakao continue to experiment and develop new genres of emoticons that can give our users further value.” And added, “For the past three years, KakaoTalk has led the evolution of emoticons, from still emoticons to animated emoticons, emoticons with sound and more, bringing on a new global trend to messaging. We will continue to uncover new ways to provide fun communication methods to our users.” To celebrate the launch, KakaoTalk and Girl’s Day also unveiled a one-minute video that gives a behind-the-scenes look at how the realcons were created. The video is available on YouTube (link below). The realcons are available on both Android and iOS, for users all around the world. They can be purchased at the KakaoTalk digital items store for $2.99 in KakaoTalk -> More menu -> Item Store.
