Google Talk Instant Messenger Client review



Believe it or not, there’s already a review avialable of the yet to be announced Google Talk CLIENT. I have done a couple posts talking about the fact that some people have been able to access talk.google.com with Jabber compatible messengers. This review is of the official Google client that will be released.



It looks as though it will be integrated with Gmail (as earlier posts of suggested). It will be ad free at this time. It looks as though it will integrate voice messaging…. from the review a summary…

Here’s a quick run-down of what Google Talk has to offer: Basic IM capabilities, high-quality and easy to use VoIP, complete integration with Gmail, and a simple, ads-free interface. Read on for our preliminary review and a glimpse into Google Talk’s future

It appears to integrate with Gmail for inbox funcitons (and adding users to your contacts.) They apparently are eager to keep the standard open (jabber clients should remain compatible.) As for future plans….

Google tells us that SIP support is coming soon and are in talks with Skype, AOL, and Yahoo! concerning interoperability.

Another big feature they’re working on is “joint search,” which would allow two or more Google Talk buddies using Google and surfing the web together. This would be a natural segue to the fabled Google Browser, but there is as yet no confirmation from Google.

Google also tells us that they don’t yet have solid plans on making money with the service, but plan on using it to drive users to Gmail.

The download link is now available to download google’s IM (instant messenger) client www.google.com/talk/

I found it listed in what’s new in gmail.

I just did a test login with GAIM as a client and can verify that things are working. I may try the windows client in a virtual machine.
