neeeds updatee
it’s nice to have a pc version of kakaotalk but it gets super inconvenient especially with the new update on mobile where you can physically reply to a specific message in a gc. i can’t see it on the pc, only showing a “Unable to show message. Please see on mobile”. super inconvenient :/ also lots of glitches in chat :(:( also, it would be nice if there’s a search function for friends…. can’t add anyone…… hopefully it updates soon!!!

Good, but still not on par with PC version
As of the 2.3.9 version, It’s a great app, as you can type with ten fingers and on a 11/13-inch screen, instead of two fingers and ~4/5-inch screens. It has made for improved efficiency in allowing you to collaborate with others, so you can get your work done in a shorter time. With that said, these next few improvements would make this a 5-star app. (The PC version of the app allows most, if not all, of these.) - Plus Friends/YellowID_ It is inconvenient having to check messages that have come from Plus Friends/YellowID only on the phone. - Posts/Links_ You can only check posts, links, polls, etc., and you canNOT create. (Again, you have to do it on your phone.) - Search_ As of Kakao for iOS (~6.5.1), you can search for people even in the Chats window. It removed the hassle of searching in Chats for someone (with whom you find you had no recent chat history) and searching for him/her again in Contacts. I can’t think of more at the moment, but all in all I hope the Mac version will soon be on par with the PC version.

Bare Minimum
This app does the job. It can send and receive messages and attach files and pictures. However there are a lot of things that could be improved in the Mac version of this app. The UI on the mac version makes no sense. It should be like the PC version of the app (and most other chat apps) where all the chat windows are put into one window and have a list on the left to choose between the different chats, instead of opening a new window for each chatroom. Second, why isn't spell check enabled for each window by default? Also loading images from each chat takes a really long time compared to other chat apps.

(FIXED) Unable to log in with 2.3.9
Update: Works perfectly fine now. Thank you for all of your hard work. I'm unable to log into the Mac client with version 2.3.9. When I enter my correct credentials, I receive a system message saying that I've logged into my account on my laptop. However, on the Mac client I'm still in the login screen after I log in. This has been difficult and frustrating to use, and I'm not sure what the fix is.

Pretty Good, but could be better!
This is does pretty well stability wise though it could benefit from bringing more features from the PC and mobile versions. It would be a much appreciated to be able to carry over themes that you have on mobile to the desktop version. Currently you can just change the background of each chatroom (or all if you wish, but the text bubbles stay the same color giving an odd contrast between the two.

I've been using kakao for around 8 years now, and throughout that time I've had a lot of issues regarding glitching. I'll send messages and my friend would not see them until minutes later, despite it saying that it delivered on my end. Additionally, photo and video quality hasn't always been the best with this app. The phone version doesn't really have this problem as much, but they really need to work on the glitches for the mac version.

INCREASE FONT in setting!! like window vers.
seriously, with macOS version if you are using 4k like me there is NO way to increase the font through katalk's setting. which is available only in WINDOW vers. PLEASE!!! implement this already !! can't read chats while in 4k mode on macOS!! give us same option as you guys have made it on window vers. let us change chat font size through setting.

Voice/Video Talk not working in MacOS anymore
Voice/Video Talk not working in MacOS anymore. I'm using the most updated Mac OS and KakaoTalk versions and Macbook Air 2020. It used to work fine with my previous Macbook Pro but suddenly stopped working with my new Macbook. I asked the customer support and they said I might have problem in my firewall etc but my fire wall is turned off and not using and other access control tools. Not to mention so many minor bugs, the app needs some serious update.

If you change numbers and phones, forget about your account.
I used KaKaoTalk for years in Korea and, privacy scandals aside, it was always fine. It was when I moved to the US that I started to have problems. When I was using the same iphone that I had in Korea, I was able to use my account with my new phone number, but as soon I got a new iPhone I was locked out of my account. It would only accept verification of the account from the phone number that I originally created the account with.

Great App Support Experience
Kakao for Macbook was breaking words (English) at odd places to start a new line. This was very frustrating for any messages longer than a few words. I emailed the App Support and they responded promptly with a sincere apology and a promise to fix it. They kept their promise and it is now fixed! Thank you Kakao!

Crashing since over a month
This was a great app and I loved it until recently, but since over a month now I am never able to use the desktop version. Even after updates, the app just never responds; I launch it and can't even click on any of the chatrooms, there's always only the spinning wheel indicating loading. It never comes to work, and I always end up force quitting and just using it on my phone. Fix please!

Chatroom issues
I’m having issues with the latest messages not showing on my desktop version of the app. Even after sending a message (or starting a conversation), the chatroom looks blank. However, when I log onto my mobile app, all the messages are there. Looks like it’s time to push another update!

What’s up with this “Connection to KakaoTalk server failed” error?
What’s up with this “Connection to KakaoTalk server failed” error? It’s been working fine and all of sudden maybe a few days ago, it stopped working and all I see is that error message. Can you fix that or how do i fix it? Not sure if it’s related to the upgrade i did.

Version 2.4.4 — can’t turn my video call camera to landscape
I have been using kakaotalk on my Mac and up until the recent update, I have been able to rotate my camera into landscape mode. I’m just wondering why this feature is suddenly gone when the toggle for rotating my camera is still an option? I clicked on it about a million times and it’s unresponsive. If you’re going to have an unresponsive toggle, might as well not put it there.

The calling echo is too loud
I could hear my voice very big. My ear can't tolerate it anymore. Once I use earbugs, the opposite person can't hear my voice anymore but my earbugs could be used for other social apps without any problems.

No Voice Issue on PC Facetalk
I use MacBook Pro and have been using this app for a while. I suddenly ran into this problem with FaceTalk. There is no sound receiving and going out at all. I won’t hear the sound nor the other line of people do. I checked my MacBook’s sound setting and it is using built-in mic. I cannot believe that this is happening…. please FIX ASAP

not working
not sure what's going on but since an update or lack of I haven't been able to get onto Kakao on my mac. Getting a Connection to KakaoTalk server failed. This may be a temporary error or due to an unstable network connection. Please try again later. Nothing to do with my connection, have no idea what's going on, updated multiple times, uninstalled. On my PC it works fine.

Frustrating UX
In addition to the issues mentioned by other reviewers, it is maddening to me that, after clicking on another app's window, Kakao's chat windows don't move to the background. They continue to present over every other app, including the one you're trying to use. The only remedy is to, tediously, close and reopen chat windows every time.

Won’t let me log in
I recently made my accout online. This account has been verified and modified, etc. Which makes me confused. When I try to log into KakaoTalk, it gives me a message saying that I didn’t register with the email, when the the email and filled in information is correct. I hope this gets fixed soon.

please make it persistent
I can’t even open the app. It just quit unexpectedly. I had been using pretty well until a week ago, though. I am not sure if it is just me or not, but my ram and hard drive are pretty spacious and other apps are running fine, so I’m sure it’s a problem of this particular application.

The rolling thing at the bottom is very annoyed
The rolling thing and search box at the bottom are very annoyed. I have a previous version(2.5.2) on other computer and I won’t update it to the 2.5.3 version because of it. Very distractive feature that makes me close it all the time. I hope you realize that it’s a seriously bad decision.

Discrimination again who live outside of Korea
So I just found out that there are services that I cannot subscribe simply because I live outside of Korea. There is no way that I can pay for the service. I wonder why they even made an app and put it on the app store if they will not support many functions that they offer. Very disappointing

The app used to be fine, but now it keeps disconnecting all the time even though my internet connection is fine. It shows "no connection" when I try to enter a conversation. When that happens not even restarting the app works. Restarting my Mac works, but then it stops working after a few minutes.

WONDERFUL way to connect with Korea
Sure, it's not perfect but nothing is. I love how this app has opened up my communications with Korean friends. It's easy to use. I am so grateful to Kakaotalk! Keep up the good work!

PC version is practically unusable recently, it slows everything down significantly whenever I click on anything on the Kakaotalk app - to a point where everything inside and outside the app stalls. Quits itself multiple times a day.

Cannot view blocked or hidden friends
When will KakaoTalk add the ability to see Hidden or Blocked Friends on the MAC version of the app. Very annoying that you can't see these items and limits the use of the app!

Good but need to improve
It’s good app. I think better than Windows version in some cases. No banner, no need to input password everytime. (It’s so annoying for Windows version.) But need to paring chat room list correctly. It’s not working correctly with iOS version. If you making this point better, it can be one of the best messanger app.
