Download Google Talk - Google's Instant Messenger

Google Talk - Google's Instant Messenger http://www.google.com/talk/

Posted on Wed., Aug 24, 2005 09:23 a.m. IST

Google's Instant Messenger Google Talk (Beta) goes live.
Download Google Talk. Size: 0.9 MB
Requires Windows XP or Windows 2000 operating system and a GMail username and password to log in. Mac and Linux users can also connect to Google Talk using other IM clients.

URL of Google Talk: http://www.google.com/talk/

More later, once I add friends and chat with them on Google Talk.

First impressions:
- Google talk logo should have the letter k in blue and not green as per Google's BRYBGR logo.
- Once a user signs in, the Sign out link should be shown on the top with Inbox, Settings, and Help links.

All the best, Google. Way to go. One small step for IM users, one major step for Google toward organizing the world's information and making it universally accessible.
