Google Talk Beta Publicly Launches!

Postby BigWorm » Wed Aug 24, 2005 7:49 am

Google Talk is a lightweight Jabber-based instant messaging client with voice capabilities. Google Talk is easy and intuitive to use. All you need to make free calls is an Internet connection, a microphone, and a speaker. After you download Google Talk, sign in with your Gmail username and password. Invite your friends to download Google Talk, and once they do, you'll be able to talk or IM with them instantly.

Google Talk currently does not encrypt chats or calls. When you use Google Talk, you can choose to have your IM chats stored locally on your own computer so that you have a chat history. Google does not collect the content of instant message chats or voice conversations.

A Gmail account is required... You can get one HERE!

Just downloaded it. Couldn't be any more stripped down. Love it, very basic and easy to use. Can't stand all the bells and whistles on AIM and Yahoo messenger. This is really clean. And I don't think Google's doing anything evil. When they first talked about their e-mail service they said that with all the space you'd have you'd never need to delete stuff. Then they said you could search for an e-mail like you search the web. People freaked out and said google was monitoring your e-mail to make it easy to search. You CAN delete any message you receive and google does not save it. Once you click "delete forever," it's gone.

they *DO* need to put in a way to clear the chat window.... however, since I prolly won't have internet consistantly for a very long time, I guess it doesn't really matter... I still like it tho ;)
