Google Google has launched an instant-messaging (IM) program that allows text chat and computer-to-computer voice connections, a move that highlights the search giant's increasing competition with Yahoo, Microsoft and America Online. You can download Google Talk here. Google also makes it very clear that you do not need Google Talk to use their service, and they provide detailed instructions on using other IM clients to connect to Google Talk. Update: Micheal Robertson announces partnership with Google to promote the use of open standards in VoIP/IM.

I'm looking forward to the opening of their SIP protocol so open source projects can adopt it. It would also be nice if we had a GTK/Qt based messenger for non-Windows machines (for those of us who don't throughly enjoy Gaim/<insert your fav IM client here>), but that's just hoping!


Well for that we have Gizmo, the best thing since sliced bread!
