They're taking over the world.

You need a gmail email address and you can type or talk.

"They're taking over the world."

No, Microsoft did that a long time ago. ;-)

Doesn't Messenger do exactly the same....or am I being totally unimpressed for no reason?

I thought I would give it a try. I have gmail and use Picasa. I signed up and invited my son who is a Yahoo user and had previously refused to gmail. He accepted and we tried to communicate managed it by mail but not yet speech and I cannot get into Talk at the moment although GMail works fine.

Anyone else tried yet?

Can't get GT to work unless I disable Norton Internet Security, even when I choose to allow it when a Norton warning screen comes up on Startup. When it works, it's great - good sound quality. I'm on Windows XP home.

I've tried google talk, of course yahoo messenger was lonely enough for me, hardly anyone has I uninstalled it.

I guess im going to do the same thing with gooogle talk, ill re-install in about 2 years time, when more people have it.

MSN Messenger does a lot than Google Talk for you. Google talk is good for voice conversation only. Webcam and other items may be added later on.

You have to include Google talk in Firewall allow list otherwise it won't work. The same is true for MSN Messenger.

I have noticed that during voice conversation it takes lot of CPU time. Which is a bad news. Has any body else noticed it.

Although the voice quality is excellent.
