AIM Triton for Windows

Time Warner Inc.'s America Online has upgraded its instant-message service to help win users and boost advertising sales.

The latest version of the software, to be made available over the next three months, improves existing voice and video chat services, and adds Internet calling and access to 20 XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. stations, AOL spokeswoman Krista Thomas said Tuesday.

The slogan of Triton is "I am everything you need to communicate". Here are the features included in this version:

  • Now there's room in your Buddy List® feature for 500 of your closest friends. Organize your chats, your buddies' Away Messages, and use IM to send gigantic files.
  • Use AIM Talk® to go from typing to talking, right from the comfort of your Buddy List® feature. Free.
  • Look your buddies in the eye while you chat with them. Video chat lets you switch from an Instant Message chat to a high-quality video conference.
  • AIM® Mail is a mere click away from the Instant Messenger™ service. With 2GBs of storage, a handy "Unsend" button and industry-leading spam and virus protection, AIM Mail is the only email you need.
  • Now you can access your Buddy List® feature on your mobile device to send and receive IMs. You can also send IMs from your computer to your buddies' cell phones.
  • Blogging directly from the messenger.

Why don't you try Google talk?

I've written something about Google Talk here: http://instantmsg.blogspot.com/2005/09/google-talk.html

I hope that there will be new interesting features in GTalk soon.

you know, i've been having trouble with it. it doesn't seem like the 'holy grail' most are touting it as -- I've not been able to sign on with my normal AIM screen name at all ("We could not sign you on"), the one I've had for close to 10 years now... yeah. kinda weird, cos it still didn't work even after I changed the password just for Triton. oh well. perhaps it'll like me in the future. looks cool though.

i hardly know how to use this thing!
i haven't the slightest idea as to how to put up an away msg, invite people into chats, and it took me nearly a half an hour trying to figure out how to read info

I'm having a problem using IM Talk from Triton. When I call the other person, we can both hear it ringing but it won't connect. Then, I get a message that says unknown error and it hangs up. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how do you fix it?

How the heck do you put up an away message??? I know how to save it but not how to use it.. this is a problem

It won't let me sign onto aim triton. Why is that? It keeps saying, "Sign on failed. Try again." everytime I try to sign on.

when i type a line of text to send over IM in Triton, and then decide to delete it by hitting backspace, the characters (the text) still remains there, but when I type anew, all the characters that I deleted disappear.
