    Review Google Talk

    Google Talk is an instant messaging software that allow us to communicate by voice, video, and text.

    The years in which the instant messaging system was the best to communicate have been left behind. Currently, thanks to mobile technology we can easily communicate with any friend without having to turn on the PC. Even so, this does not mean that instant messaging is dead. Instant messaging programs have evolved, and in addition to send text messages to friends, we can also speak with a microphone or make video calls using webcam.

    Google Talk or Gtalk is an ideal tool to communicate with our gmail contacts, because we can use the chat, video call or voice communication. In addition we will not have to add our gmail contacts, as to make use of Gtalk, we will login with our gmail address, and it automatically import all our contacts into the program.

    This software is notable for its simplicity, as it focuses on the functionality. The interface is clean and simple, without thousands of options that distract us from the main purpose. This doesn't mean that we cannot modify certain program's features, for example, we can change the chat conversations design, being able to choose from 9 different styles. We can also configure the notifications, so it alert us when a friend start session, when we receive an incoming call, or a new chat, or a new e-mail in our gmail account. We can also add an avatar that will be shown to our contacts when talking with them.

    A useful option, and very typical of these programs, is the ability to change our state. We will be able to choose among which are defined by default: active, away, busy, etc, or we can define our own state. If we don't use the PC for 10 minutes, state will automatically change to “away”.

    The program supports the configuration of a proxy, so we will be able to use the program if our PC connects to the Internet through proxy.

    Google has replaced Gtalk with Google Hangouts, even so, Google Talk can be downloaded and used. Many users are still using Gtalk although it has been discontinued, as the new application Hangouts don't have all the Gtalk features.

    On Google's official page Google Talk is no longer available to download for PC. Here we offer the downloadable version, and fully functional program.
