There are plenty of messaging services these days, particularly on the Google Play Store. Since consumers have variety of choices to choose from, surviving in such a competitive market is a difficult task.

After experiencing a slump in sales with the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung is now rethinking its strategies. Many speculations have been made as to what Samsung plans on doing. One of the rumors spreading out these days is that Samsung might be considering about shutting down the “Chaton” messaging service.

According to Korea Times, one of the Samsung official has told them that the organization is planning on shutting down the mobile messaging service from different regions one by one as the company is trying to reconsider businesses that are not generating much profit. This will help them get rid of extra expenses and earn more profits. Korea Times however, refused to give out the name of the official. Another Samsung official, whose name is not disclosed, said that Samsung is on the road towards the betterment of its business units. From a profits point of view, Chaton is not ideal.

However, according to Sam mobile the rumors regarding ChatOn are not true and they will continue to provide the messaging service to their consumers all over the world.

ChatOn appeared on the scene in year 2011 and is a global service with consumers present in 120 countries. Although the new report claimed that it will shut down soon, it didn’t exactly mention when how the cellular giant is going to do that. The rumor can turn out to be just a “rumor” but for users of the messaging service it is the right time to look for alternatives.
