※ Users may allow the following permissions to use the Kakao T service seamlessly. All permissions are divided into two categories – required and optional.
1. Required Permissions
1) Location (required): Receive suggestions for optimal locations based on my current location and use services requiring location information.
2) Storage: Save Kakao T service information called from my device and access the information continuously.
3) Contacts: Receive information from Kakao T services called from my device and use the services smoothly.
4) Phone: Receive the phone number information to be verified by Kakao T.
2. Optional Permissions
1) SMS: Read the verification code sent by Kakao T.
2) Microphone (optional): Set the start point and the destination using the voice recognition feature on Kakao T.
※ Kakao T’s permissions are divided into required permissions and optional permissions from Android 6.0 and up. If your device is running a lower version, you are recommended to check with the manufacturer of your device if the OS can be updated and, if yes, update your OS to 6.0 or higher, since you may not choose which optional permissions you will grant. Please also note that permissions granted by the previous version of the app will not be changed even if the OS is updated. Therefore, you must delete the existing app and re-install a new one to re-set permissions.
※ Users may use the Kakao T services without granting optional permissions.
The latest Kakao T version is now available. Here's what's new.
1. Forgot to reserve a parking lot? No worries. Now you can use Kakao T Parking without reservation. (We're increasing the number of parking lots which don't require reservation.)
2. Drivers with three or more children, the disabled and patriots/veterans can get discount for parking fees.
3. Other minor bug fixes.
