Google Talk Super Updates

29 Jul 2006

I was about to go to bed when GoogleTalk suddenly logged me off and displayed an update note. I went to check it out and boy oh boy, this seems to be really nice. They’re actually trying to make it a full IM client. I was waiting for this to happen, and it’s a good thing it did.

File Transfer

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



If a friend isn’t around to answer your call, now you can leave a voicemail. You can even leave voicemail 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

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

Nice :) Really nice!

    Nice update, but nothing new here. I tried downloading and installing it again but I didn’t get the new features :-( Hopefully they will add multiple chats with several friends at once in the near future too.

    Well, I didn’t had to install anything. I just got them after Google Talk logged me off to say there were updates. I logged in again and there they were.
