ChatON is a messaging platform from Samsung. As Samsung strategy is to throw on the market new features and see what it sticks, ChatON just received some new features. The best thing of this new update is that you could delete a message that you’ve sent. Will this new feature make people use Samsung’s app and not other well known apps like WhatsApp?

But how can you erase a sent message? The new update lets you the chance to erase the a message even after it was read. You can do this by simply tapping and holding the message bubble that appears. Then you should tap Recall. A thing to keep in mind is that this feature works only in one-to-ine chat rooms and not in bigger chat rooms.

This is not the only thing that ChatON brings up.  Another thing that you could do is to broadcast your location for a specific amount of time. This can be handy when you talk with somebody that doesn’t believe where you are. This feature comes with the integration of the Glympse app, but Samsung didn’t mention if you must have Glympse installed to work.
