Kakao’s technical glitches cause disruptions Monday

June 26,2018
Korea’s top mobile messenger Kakaotalk resumed normal services after experiencing disruptions around 5 p.m., its operator Kakao said Monday.

Kakao said the messenger suffered problems for around an hour before being normalized at 5:48 p.m. It claimed there seems to have been some sort of error while the system was being updated.

Earlier in the day, deliveries of messages on its platform were delayed, and the personal computer version of the program was also not working properly.

The company said the service is now fully normalized.

KakaoTalk is the most popular mobile messenger app in Korea, boasting a whopping 40 million users.
