      In the Internet world there are lots of medium to communicate with others. Technology is changing everyday and new applications are coming to get in touch with your loved ones. Phone seems too expensive to communicate with all so people are sending emails, using web cams and chat on messengers. Messengers are used for instant messaging and it is the most frequent way to chat on Internet. There are lots of programs available for messaging such as AOL, MSN, Yahoo and google talk.

      First thing I like about google talk is its simplicity. The user interface is very simple. Eyes feel pretty good to have a look at it. You need to have google account to use google talk. Creating google account is free of cost. You can download google talk from google itself. Its very small in size and downloading takes very less time. Installation procedure is standard and it takes only few seconds. Just

      a few clicks and you are done. To login in the application simply enter username and password. You can also choose to remember username and password but I don’t prefer it because someone else can open your account. If you own pc and only you use it then this feature is useful for you, as you don’t have to enter username and password again and again.

      When you first logged in it will show your status available. You can choose you status as busy or you can enter your own status message. Actually this is very useful. People can see what are you doing and they can message accordingly. For an instance if someone is busy you wont dare to contact him. You can choose how to display contacts. For example if you want to hide your offline buddies or you want to sort them alphabetically. To add contacts simply click on add contact and enter ...

      • email address of your buddy. When your buddy accepts your request you can see his name in your contact list. You can also delete any contact and if you want to block anyone you can. The great feature that google talk provides is voice chat. If you have headphones with mic you can talk with him using this feature. Its just like phone. You click on the dial button and ring will bell. Your buddy can answer or can cut the phone. Unlike any other application the voice is clear.

        Good thing is that it automatically integrates contacts from gmail and Orkut account. So you don’t need to add contacts separately. Here comes the best thing about google talk. It also displays a message when you get mail on gmail and it displays scraps when someone scraps you on Orkut. So you can handle google account with google talk. You buddy can left offline message and

        voice mail. You can read those mails on gmail and you can listen voice mail afterwards. You can create a small chat room and group chat with your buddies. You can also download extensions from google. The last thing I would like to add about is that it also supports file transfer. If you want to share any file with your buddy drag and drop it in the chat window. He will transfer that file easily.

        I first used yahoo messenger but the day I started using google talk I never used yahoo messenger again. I think google products are created to replace all those. For an instance I never used yahoo mail again since I started using gmail. Same case is with google chrome. The only drawback I found in google talk is that it doesn’t support web cam and video conferencing. Still I like it and I am using it happily. Highly recommended application from my side.
