Google to release its IM this Wednesday





babumuchhala
Well yes if you are to belive this article on the New York Times site

I quote the words in the article
Quote:
Google executives say they plan to unveil on Wednesday a "communications tool" that is potentially a clear step beyond the company's search-related business focus.

While executives would not disclose what the new software tool might be, Google has long been expected to introduce an instant messaging service to compete with services offered by America Online, Yahoo and MSN from Microsoft.


If history is anything to go by this one will be a hell of an IM

It will be great. Google sure has a way in staying in the Internet ara. Be looking towards the release of it.

I wonder if it will be capable of connecting to other IM services as an all-in-one, much like like trillian can intigrate AOL, MSN, IRC/ICQ, and Y! all together. All in all, I certainly look forward to Google's new peice of technology.Very Happy

Personally, I'm not That excited... GAIM is so good i don't know why you would use anything else... Rolling Eyes

Search "gaim for windows" in google... make sure uve got GTK+ installed or choose the version that includes it...

Gaim allows all sorts of features/plugins, use it for MSN, Yahoo, AIM...

AND... it's open source goodness!!

According to that article, too many things on Google's plate. Guess we'll have to wait and see. But judging by the way google operates (the best Search engine, and the best email service), I can't wait to see what they'll offer in IMs. Ought to be awesome.

I just made a post in Dicuss World news on this.

Google Talk

A review: http://www.downloadsquad.com/2005/08/23/googe-talk-review/

It is an IM client and can do internet calls as well. Jabber based. It is very basic at the moment. You have to have a GMail account to use it - obviously a direct challenge to MSN / Hotmail. Skype will feel threatened as well, I guess. You can actually use GAIM or Trillian or any other client that supports Jabber to connnect to Google Talk.

www.google.com/talk/ -- The trailing slash is IMPORATNT
