Samsung’s own instant messaging platform ChatON has just rolled out an update that integrates SMS and MMS messaging support following Google’s move with Hangouts. However, as SamMobile pointed out, Samsung’s integration of SMS might confuse a lot of users at first as putting both SMS and IMs in the same conversation is hardly intuitive, and after all might be the same conversation and being the first update with this integration, it’s not as clean as the current implementation made in Hangouts.
What this shows though, is that Samsung is again making a move to completely replace Google services on their devices. As to why, well, it’s just how Samsung does things. Nevertheless, it is nice to see Samsung updating their cross-platform messaging service with new features like this, after all the instant messaging market is moving pretty quickly.
