ChatON was a global mobile communication service introduced by Samsung Electronics in September 2011.[7] ChatON served more than 120 countries in 62 languages.[7] ChatON was available on Android,[8] iOS,[9] BlackBerry, Windows Phone (Samsung Zone),[10] Windows Mobile (Korea), and Bada smartphones.[11] Additionally, a web client was offered for access to the service via web browsers.[12] Users could invite and register buddies via Facebook and Twitter as well as share ChatON content on Facebook. Among ChatON's unique features were allowing users to create Animation messages, Broadcast to send personal notices in a group chat room, and the Trunk which stores media files shared in chats.[11] When a user logs in ChatON, the users' buddy list is available on any connected device.[13][14]

ChatON was viewed as an alternative to WhatsApp.[15]
