Google Introduces Google Talk

Google has introduced a very nice project: Google Talk.

Google Talk would be the newest instant messaging service with a ambitious goal.

Google Talk is currently in Beta stage, but here's the scoop on what it will provide.

First, Google Talk will link it's Gmail accounts to Google Talk. That's similar to how MSN messenger links to its Hotmail accounts.

Secondly, Google Talk will be more than just the next instant messaging service, because it will also contain Voice Over-IP capabilities.

Thirdly, and here's where things get real cool, Google Talk is trying to make all instant messaging services compatible with each other.

For example, if you use MSN messenger you can't talk to someone with Yahoo! messenger. But Google Talk wants to break down those barriers.

Because Google Talk is based on the open source Jabber protocol called Extensible Message and Presence Protocol(XMPP), it wants to interconnect all other instant messaging services.

You are able to download the beta version of Google Talk. Of course, you must have a Gmail account.

Previously, few had access to a Gmail accounts, but Google has stated that from today forward it is looking to make Gmail accounts more accessible to more people.

This is an interesting twist in the world of Technology. So get chatting!

  • emmm, well what can i say, i like the idea of another instand messenger, i have atually tried this out and seems plain and simple to use. Not to sure about how google are going to promote this software as we alreay know that the microsoft instantmessenger, msn messenger, is very popular at the moment, espically with the teenagers. Im not to sure if the teenager generation will atually bother to swap to this software. Otherwise it seems ideal, espically the fact that google want to allow mutilpe mail server logins (yahoo, gmail etc). Nice one.
