      GTalk (short name for Google Talk) is a messenger software released by Google in 2005. Anyone who has a GMail account (a gmail account is not enough) can use GTalk to chat with other people who also have a GMail account. Though Yahoo and MSN are the leaders in this area till data, there are many cool features in GTalk which I find very useful and innovative.

      GTalk is very simple unlike other messengers which offer too many unnecessary features which are generally not used by anyone. This just caters your need to chat and talk over voice and thus is very small and simple to use. The setup for GTalk is just below 1MB, much smaller compared

      to other messengers. Being a small program Gtalk also loads very quickly and can be run on machines with not-very-good configurations.

      Chat Record is a cool feature offered by GTalk not found in other messengers. When you are chatting with someone, by default GTalk saves the entire conversation. However it also provides you an option to go ‘off record’ whenever you want even when you are in the middle of a conversation. So whenever I feel that the conversation is going bad :) I just go of record. There is also no limit on the conversations storage. So you can see all your conversations on GTalk any time you want.

      Custom Message is just another innovative feature introduced by ...

      • GTalk. You can put a small message in your status box and all your friends (contacts) can see this message. I always use this to convey my mood, let people know about new posts on my blog etc. Along with this Google also shows one of three colors assigned to each contact - green to say the person is available to chat, red to say the person is busy and orange to say the person is not at his machine.

        GTalk also provides voice chat facility. Though this is not unique to GTalk I personally found that the quality of voice over GTalk is much better than with any other messenger (no video chat option). The voice will

        hardly break any time.

        Another feature I appreciate a lot is the image I can put with my name. This image can be seen by all your friends. In GTalk he image is large enough and can be seen clearly. I use this pic also to convey my mood.

        With GTalk you can also change the themes. There are a myriad of themes available on the internet and they make chatting on GTalk much more fun.

        Concluding, I personally prefer GTalk than those gaudy messengers which clutter too many buttons which you will never use. GTalk simple user interface and faster loading are definitely impressive. This combined with the other innovative(not found in any other messenger) make GTalk my choice

    why is it so hard to get on the messenger at school isnt there a way to like hack in somehow???

    Most school computers are monitored by an administrator, so I would advise against this. It’s difficult to access because of the security restrictions on the network. They want to prevent you from going to websites that are not education related.
