is Google's instant communications service. Like Gmail, Google's free webmail service, Google Talk
uses Google's innovative technologies to help people communicate more effectively and efficiently. This means Google Talk
is fast, intuitive and fun to use.
It also means you can start thinking about instant communications in a new way. Google Talk
offers you different ways to integrate real time communications into your online experience. The Google Talk
Gadget lets you see who's online and send instant messages from your Google Personalized Homepage, without installing any software. You can also add the same instant messaging capabilities to your own webpage or blog by cutting and pasting a single line of code. And by downloading the Google Talk
Client, you can make voice calls and transfer files to your friends.
And if you use Gmail, Google Talk
offers you even more. You'll find all of your Gmail contacts organized in your Talk
contacts list. Gmail also archives all of your Google Talk
chats and makes them searchable. And since Google Talk
is integrated into Gmail, you'll be able to chat with all your Talk
contacts there, too.Source: Google Talk
