Get your AIM in Google Talk

Post icon  Posted 05 December 2007 - 01:16 AM

If your like me you have gmail open 24 hours a day. At work, school and home.

Google talk is cool for me and my geek friends, but now is integrated with AIM.

Its over. GOOGLE just won the world.

yeah, but another program to run, especially on a computer you don't normally used.

They have been talking about doing this for nearly 2 years, they finally got it going. Now if only they could combine MSN too.

I love GTalk, but I use MSN for work which means Pidgin is right for me. I know there is a way to get MSN going with a Jabber server because I had done it before, but it doesn't work well at all.

Still, very tempting!

*edit* Now that I read the blog entry in more detail, it only mentions GMail... What about the GTalk client?

yeah, i searched and didn't see any google talk updates to the client.

weird i can't imagine they don't have the power to do that in about 5 minutes.

but fine for me, i like the gmail talker.

That's good news, even we can't use AIM on our super ISP here in my country. :withstupid:
I was thinking:Since everybody here like Gtalk, and the DICMail is hosted by gmail server.
Why don't you guys (DIC Team) add gtalk to the messengers list at member's profile? :D
So we can Gtalk together. :)

(MSN + Yahoo) + (AIM + Gtalk) = World domination, just for the record. But I'd don't think that Google is about to put the grapple on MS just yet. Give em 10 years or so.

I'm on board with that, unfortunately it seems to be crashing a lot lately :(

Every time you think Google is done growing... they aren't...

AIM plus Gmail is equal to or less than 3?

I don't think that's what they intended to convey.

Yeah it's a pretty cool idea to have it integrated now. Now if I am on some random computer I can chat it up with my AIM buddies on Gmail :)
