Google Chat Launches


[Media Source*]

Google Talk is a simple and free way to talk with and send instant messages to your friends. Like Gmail, Google Talk uses Google's innovative technologies to help people communicate more effectively and efficiently. Think of it as Google's approach to communications.

Google Talk is easy and intuitive to use. All you need to make free calls is an Internet connection, a microphone, and a speaker. After you download Google Talk, sign in with your Gmail username and password. Invite your friends to download Google Talk, and once they do, you'll be able to talk or IM with them instantly.

Editor's Note: After waiting hours for it's release, it seems that Google's new chat program, which goes by the name of Google Talk has finally been launched. The layout is very simplistic and noticeably ad free which seems to be mimicking the philosophy of Trillian.

One noticeable aspect about Google Talk is the ability to make "calls" through the chat program. Another great feature about the program is the ability to import gmail users from your contact list (since they are automatically usernames). A picture preview is below.



The only sad thing about the launching of Google Talk is the death of Hello, Google's other IM client it inherited when it bought out Picasa. Although Hello may be around for a while, it's photo sharing capabilities will probably be assimilated within the Google Talk, enhancing the latest addition to Google's arsenal even further.
