Google Talk

It has happened finally….. Google has launched its Messenger (Ofcourse the Beta Version.) There had been a lot of speculations about it since a long time. Technically it is supposed to be launched on wednesday (tomorrow), but its already up @ their website right now, coz its wednesday in other parts of the world.

You can download the “Google Talk” here, but the catch is that u have to have a Gmail a/c which, most of the ppl have these days and if u don’t then contact me.

Right now it is very primitive, the main funda is Voice Messaging. I haven’t tested it in a duplex mode w/ someone while Voice Chatting, so can’t say too much bout its Voice quality and the lag time etc.

You get new email @ ur Gmail a/c notifications similar to Y! and MSN IMs. There r no Smileys, they just show the main gestures such as a smile or laughter in blue color.

I am sure….in coming few days, we will definetly see a lot of goodies coming to us in the form of Google Talk.

BTW checkout an article about it. Also checkout its features w/ screenshots here.

Feel free to Add me, the username is same as my domain name!!

PS – No, it doesn’t have any contextual based Ads (so, far) and I don’t think they will introduce any Ads, coz it is more for making a customer base…..

    yaa i can’t get alll of my friends to switch over to google talk..so i don’t think i will move over. :sad:

    AIM i use for office purposes only (that used to be my main ones for friends/family), yahoo is for friends/family, and msn is for friends/family.

    so there you go. three diff ones all being used. :smile:

    ohhhhh and the big thing..i don’t have a gmail acct. 😀 neeraj has one..but i don’t…cuz i use the [email protected] after all paid money for it..good thing to use it. plus with all of the other email addys (hotmail, yahoo, blah blah blah), one more would just get overlooked. 😉
