Google Talk

http://talk.google.com

Is it something new or something already seen? Really it has many things common with messengers like Skype, ICQ, etc. But what I like in it are currently two main things – the integration with Gmail and the good quality of the sound. Maybe the simple and nice design (fx. not full of ads like Mirabilis’ ICQ) is also one of the things which make good impression.

Here are the main features (note that it’s still beta version):

You can contact your friends by email (Gmail), to call them or to write them an instant message. It’s always nice to have more possibilities.

You can import your Gmail contacts and to invite some people who still didn’t download Google Talk.

And… you can use another IM client (if it supports Jabber). A list of such clients are listed here http://www.google.com/talk/otherclients.html

As we know that every product of Google is different from other their competitors, we can expect many new and unique features soon.

Thanks for the space :)

I downloaded this google talk back when it came out... I haven't used it since. I found most people I talk to prefer something else.

Anyway, just checking out your site. Interesting IM stuff! :)
