Introduction to Kakao Talk for Windows and what it is used for:


An easy to use, stress-free communication app

Looking for an easy way to get connected to the world from the comfort of your home? KakaoTalk has got you covered. It's one of the best, easy-to-use communication apps for Android, iOS, and desktop users that keeps you connected to everything and everyone around the world.

It's a free communication tool that offers instant messaging, free voice and video calls, location sharing, and a lot more. Kakaotalk is a great social networking app.

This app allows you to search for people's name, email account, or phone number to reach out to them. As long as you have a friend that uses the kakaotalk app, then it's worth the look. However, with this app, you won't be able to reach out to landlines or mobile numbers that aren't registered even with a paid version.

The kakaotalk app is more popular in Korea and has over 150 million users. With the kakaotalk app, it's easier to search for people using their name, number, and email account. In fact, people can be found so easily on this app that it raises a few issues about security.


How to Use Kakao Talk:

Kakao talk is quite easy to use and works almost like other communication apps.

To get started on using this app, you'll have to download kakaotalk first to a mobile device or PC from an Android or iOS store. Kakao talk is available on every major app store. All you need to do is type "kakaotalk" and follow the instructions.

What makes KakaoTalk so important?

Compared to other communication apps, kakaotalk makes communication easy and accessible. If you decide to create a chat room with your friends, kakaotalk makes it easy.

With kakaotalk, the number of friends you can have in a chat room is endless plus you can add as many friends you wish to your chat room anytime. If all your friends are kakao users, then rest assured the session will be free for everyone.

You can conveniently send an email across to a colleague or friend, with kakao mail. As a vendor, you can also create a business platform, with kakao channel. You can create your business platform for free, showcase your products and services, and share with other kakao users.

A window of KakaoTalk on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • The worst

    By What. What (Pcmac user)

    I have number of problems but the one that made me frustrated the most was that fact that you need your old phone number to get your old account back. I have had the same phone but I realized my phone number was different. So I tried to change it and it told me that I had to delete the app and download it again. Ok fine. As I have important chats for my business I have backed up my chats and deleted the app without thinking. I download it and tried to find my old account only to have this app say that I need my old number. I haven't used that number for over a year. I asked all my friends and family and none of them know it! After hours of searching I find my number only to have my account say that I don't have any backups. So now I lost all my important chat histories. I can't even get back my old theme I bought. I would never use this app if it wasn't for my boss..
  • 별하나도 아깝다

    By Yeonji12 (Pcmac user)

    The reason I deleted my account was to find my ID and NOW I can't sign back in with the same account as well. I have used my old phone number for two years; there is no way to get a call from Korea to get dam ARS verification. I tried to get verification through email and old phone number but what's the last step? ARS!!! They don't have a customer service phone number to contact. I’ve used my old phone number with usim card and there is no record of proof to show that I've used it. Until they update this, I am not going to use this app. 한국판에는 아이디가 안나와있고 해외용은 아이디 등록할수있게 되있고. 그래서 로그아웃하고 다시 로그인해서 해외용으로 깔려고 하니까 비밀번호 틀렸다고 로그인안되고 비번 리셋시킬려고 들어가면 전에 쓰던 번호넣어서 ars로 인증받으라고 하고 그 전번호는 유심써서 등록됬던 기록도 없는데 그걸로 무슨 ars를 받고 인증을 하냐고! 이메일을 먼저 넣어도 ars 전에 쓰던번호를 넣어도 ars 그럴거면 전화번호는 왜 넣고 이메일주소는 왜 넣으라고해서 verification code를 받으라고 하냐고. 고객센터는 본인을 인증하라고 하는데 이렇게 까지해서 기록을 찾으려고하는 성의는 안보이나? 고객센터 해외용으로 전화를 걸고 싶어도 전화도 못하고 보니까 한국에서도 카카오톡 고객센터 전화번호를 오죽 못찾으면 사람들이 블로그에 올려둘까. 그렇게 업데이트를 해대면 뭐하냐고 제일 기본적인게 안되는데.
  • Opinion and my suggestion

    By CrizzMin (Pcmac user)

    Hello!! I really love this app because I can search group chats and I can use it more frequently instead of it just sitting in my phone. I also love how there are themes. But somehow I want a GOT7 theme, if you can, can you please add a GOT7 theme? Like their faces are in it and they have different expressiond and etc like the one with Ryan >< I just want that theme and nothing else. Oh yeah, I also have a problem when logging into my iPad, I entered my email and the password but it says it can’t ㅠㅠ please fix it or maybe its not capable for iPad?? I just want to also chat in my iPad. Thank you a lot. Hope you see this ><
  • Maybe a new update/collaboration with Apple?

    By AKiarie👍🏿 (Pcmac user)

    I LOVE the different kinds of emojis/stickers I can use in the KakaoTalk app! However, I’m feeling like to really get the bank for my buck, I would LOVE even more to be able to use the stickers in the text messaging app on the Apple phones! Let me know if that’s already a thing haha 😅😅 but as an expressive person who uses KakaoTalk talk often but have a decent amount of friends and family who don’t, I'd love to be able to share and promote the app through your fun creative stickers! Just a thought! Thank you! The app is pretty great otherwise
