In an event held recently, Kakao Philippines just announced the launch of Open Chat. The Open Chat is the latest exciting Kakao Talk feature that enables users to chat with others at the click of a link.

To further explain the process, all chat rooms in Open Chat designated URLs, where-in users can share via social media and other websites. What makes it special is all Kakao Talk user can enter even without providing their mobile numbers, info and Kakao Talk IDs. It's designed to make group chat easier because users who have the link can join the conversation in an instant without the need to add people one at a time.
Human relationships offline are not equal. There are mutual friends whom users are comfortable sharing their mobile numbers or profiles with, and then there are complete strangers. Kakao provides a middle level of interaction with this new feature. Open Chat connects users through links; as opposed to regular chats, which require the exchange of phone numbers. Open Chat allows users to have more control over their friends list and gives them a secure alternative: to chat with whomever they need without having to divulge personal information.
Open chat is also designed for Kakao Talk users that continuously requested for “easier and more convenient ways to chat with new friends” and “ways to limit or control who [they] reveal [their] profiles to.” This new feature is also intended for those who are seeking fast and convenient ways of communications. In that regard, people with same interest can converse with one another thru open chat links posted on social media and other websites.

Open chat can be also helpful for bloggers, it can serve as an interactive comment section for your readers without giving out personal details. They just need to add the "Open Chat" link at the end of the post.
How to use Open Chat
Open Chats can be created by pressing on the floating ‘+’ button on the Chats tab and selecting ‘Open Chat.’ The host can then input his or her chat identity and set up a chat room. The host can choose a type of chat (1:1 chat or group chat), select a background photo, and simply press ‘OK.’ The Open Chat link will then be live and ready to go.
Open Chat makes it easy to begin conversations with people who are not on each other’s KakaoTalk friends lists. It also alleviates users’ concerns about exposing their personal details on messenger services,” explained Paolo Pineda, CEO of Kakao Philippines Corp. "The real value of this feature is that it provides our users with privacy and control over their friends list, while connecting with other people."
Open Chat is also designed to accomodate up to 500 users on a single chat room to make sure that there's no jumbling of messages. The host of the chat room can also designate the maximum number of users allowed to participate in any given Open Chat.
The Open Chat feature of Kakao Talk will be available for Filipos users starting October 11, on Android and IOS. Users of this will also enjoy Kakao Talk's other features like the "Secret Group Chat" and "Star Chat". Pretty exciting stuff right? :)
