Well, not really. However, with the pending launch of a new version of Google Talk, it will be soon. Users of the new Google Talk client for Windows Now have the new and following features:
File Transfer With this top requested new feature, you can send unlimited files and folders to your friends through Google Talk. There is no restriction on the file type or size and the peer-to-peer transfer is fast and reliable. Learn more
A small percentage of users (such as those behind restrictive proxies) will not experience the highest level of file transfer speed possible.
Voice mail If a friend isn’t around to answer your call, now you can leave a voice mail. You can even leave voice mail messages for your friends who don’t use Google Talk–they’ll receive an email with the message attached as an audio file. Learn more
Music Status Listening to music while on Google Talk? Now you can let your friends see what you’re listening to by selecting “Show current music track” in your status menu. Your status message will change when your song does! Learn more
For those of you who don’t use Google Talk, I highly recommend it. While similar in functionality to all the other IM clients, Google Talk has some key features that make it stand out as the leader:
- Direct Gmal Integration – you can use Google Talk right from the Gmail website. Check it out!
- Chat Auto Archiving – because of the direct integration with Gmail, Google Talk can automatically save your chat histories in Gmal for you under the heading Chats. What makes this cool is that it doesn’t matter what computer/device you are accessing Google Talk from, it will get everything. For example, I connect to Google Talk from my desktop at work, home as well as from my Blackberry. The chats are archived from all the devices
- No Ads! – That’s right, when you are using the Google Talk client on Windows, there are no Ads anywhere. Yay Google!
- Voice Chat – Similar to Skype, Google Talk features an excellent VoIP solution (SIP) for great voice calls.
- Easy To Use – With just the options you need, Google Talk is great for nearly all users
So yeah, DOWNLOAD THE NEW GOOGLE TALK!
