If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

    By What. What
    I have number of problems but the one that made me frustrated the most was that fact that you need your old phone number to get your old account back. I have had the same phone but I realized my phone number was different. So I tried to change it and it told me that I had to delete the app and download it again. Ok fine. As I have important chats for my business I have backed up my chats and deleted the app without thinking. I download it and tried to find my old account only to have this app say that I need my old number. I haven't used that number for over a year. I asked all my friends and family and none of them know it! After hours of searching I find my number only to have my account say that I don't have any backups. So now I lost all my important chat histories. I can't even get back my old theme I bought. I would never use this app if it wasn't for my boss..

    The reason I deleted my account was to find my ID and NOW I can't sign back in with the same account as well. I have used my old phone number for two years; there is no way to get a call from Korea to get dam ARS verification. I tried to get verification through email and old phone number but what's the last step? ARS!!! They don't have a customer service phone number to contact. I’ve used my old phone number with usim card and there is no record of proof to show that I've used it. Until they update this, I am not going to use this app. 한국판에는 아이디가 안나와있고 해외용은 아이디 등록할수있게 되있고. 그래서 로그아웃하고 다시 로그인해서 해외용으로 깔려고 하니까 비밀번호 틀렸다고 로그인안되고 비번 리셋시킬려고 들어가면 전에 쓰던 번호넣어서 ars로 인증받으라고 하고 그 전번호는 유심써서 등록됬던 기록도 없는데 그걸로 무슨 ars를 받고 인증을 하냐고! 이메일을 먼저 넣어도 ars 전에 쓰던번호를 넣어도 ars 그럴거면 전화번호는 왜 넣고 이메일주소는 왜 넣으라고해서 verification code를 받으라고 하냐고. 고객센터는 본인을 인증하라고 하는데 이렇게 까지해서 기록을 찾으려고하는 성의는 안보이나? 고객센터 해외용으로 전화를 걸고 싶어도 전화도 못하고 보니까 한국에서도 카카오톡 고객센터 전화번호를 오죽 못찾으면 사람들이 블로그에 올려둘까. 그렇게 업데이트를 해대면 뭐하냐고 제일 기본적인게 안되는데.
  • Opinion and my suggestion

    By CrizzMin
    Hello!! I really love this app because I can search group chats and I can use it more frequently instead of it just sitting in my phone. I also love how there are themes. But somehow I want a GOT7 theme, if you can, can you please add a GOT7 theme? Like their faces are in it and they have different expressiond and etc like the one with Ryan >< I just want that theme and nothing else. Oh yeah, I also have a problem when logging into my iPad, I entered my email and the password but it says it can’t ㅠㅠ please fix it or maybe its not capable for iPad?? I just want to also chat in my iPad. Thank you a lot. Hope you see this ><
  • Maybe a new update/collaboration with Apple?

    I LOVE the different kinds of emojis/stickers I can use in the KakaoTalk app! However, I’m feeling like to really get the bank for my buck, I would LOVE even more to be able to use the stickers in the text messaging app on the Apple phones! Let me know if that’s already a thing haha 😅😅 but as an expressive person who uses KakaoTalk talk often but have a decent amount of friends and family who don’t, I'd love to be able to share and promote the app through your fun creative stickers! Just a thought! Thank you! The app is pretty great otherwise
  • iPad support would be great..

    카톡 자체는 5star드리고 싶지만 아이패드용 버젼이 없어서 매우 아쉽네요. 아이패드 서포트가 안되면 아예 다운로드가 안되는게 맞는 것 같구요 ('Compatibility'에서 iPad를 빼는게 좋겠죠..). 그리고 서포트 추가한다면 라인 처럼 전화번호 필요 없이 email login이 있으면 좋겠네요.. 카카오 pc에서 로그인하는 것 처럼 말이죠. I'd like to give it a 5 star but will not because it says it's 'compatible with ipad' yet it's not. As a Korean, Kakao Talk is like a must have messaging app and so I'd like to have it on all my devices and not just my iphone and mac. Considering the fact that we've long lived in this age where tablet devices are widely and frequently used, I don't understand why Kakao has not created support for them (I'm talking about iPads specifically because I don't know what the support is for tablets with other OSs). I never used LINE but now I'm using it because it has iPad support - a really good one.
  • Lol what problem do you have?

    By kingkungi
    A dumb problem like no back up or unable to use old account is because you only linked the number without linking your email. Ive been using this app since it came out, and never disliked it, despite some bugs time to time. The only downside is that the US version is not up to date with the Korean version, and only very little Americans use this. This could replace all communication apps, when it adds gif searches lol
  • Hoping for the lite version.

    By Junxterjack
    I know this app is crucial when you live in Korea. Most people use this app rather than anything else. However this app’s size is getting too big. I hope there is lite version of this app so that people who doesn’t like to use channel tab. I think disallowing kakao pay use and channel tab together will be good. People who uses kakao pay can use this normal version so that they can also see the channel tab. However people who don’t use kakao pay and see channel tab can use lite. I don’t know if you look through these reviews but it would be great if you do. Thanks.
  • Emoticon Issue

    By SwansonsEx
    I do adore the application honestly wish everyone I knew used it but since I received my iPhone X a few days ago I’m unable to scroll through my emoticons. The issue is the emoticon bar is in the exact place where the “swipe bar” is. Which means every time I try to go left or right(to find an emote) I just move the screen/app around. Please take a look into this in your future updates. Thank you.
  • Nice chat app

    I really like Kakao. I enjoy that I can change backgrounds and text fonts. As this is something one cannot so in iMessage. I also love the stickers. It has a nice interface and you can personalize it. It also works nicely with texting friends, especially when traveling and living in different countries. It is definitely more fun and innovative then WhatsApp as well.
  • Why no GIFs?

    By mrpandaa
    I love KakaoTalk generally, and appreciate the effort that’s put into it, because without it, I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my friends in Korea. :) So thanks for that. But I have a quick suggestion: GIFs! I was honestly shocked to see that Kakao doesn’t support imbedded GIFs, considering nearly all message apps do now. I know you guys want to sell your special Kakao characters, but GroupMe gets by just fine while still supporting inline GIFs.
