Google has released its IM client, Google
Talk. If you have a Gmail account, give it a shot.
They say talk is cheap. Google thinks it should be free. Google Talk enables
you to call or send instant messages to your friends for free–anytime,
anywhere in the world. Google Talk offers you:
- Choice: Get in touch how and when you want to–over email, IM or
- Quality: Talk through your computer but hear your friends as if they
were in the same room
- Convenience: Your Gmail contacts are pre-loaded into Google Talk so inviting
or talking to your friends is just a click away
Google Talk is in beta and requires a Gmail username and password.
