Google Talk? What's this? Is Google getting into on the web telephony craze? Yes they're! The search giant now offers a beta version download of Google Talk at no charge. http://www.google.com/talk/ <br /><br />Google Talk allows people to IM or make calls on the Internet using a PC, speakers and microphone, again; totally free. The new Google application may be downloaded by anyone with Windows 2000 platform or later. <br /><br />Naturally you are able to only call or IM others who've saved the Google Talk application. Both parties must have a Gmail account to log onto the Google Talk messenger. <br /><br />Those that do not already have a Gmail account can request an invitation via mobile-phone. https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1.. People that do not have a cell-phone should have somebody with an account send a Gmail request. <br /><br />Google has caused it to be relatively easy to include individuals to the contacts list of the messenger. Invitations are sent immediately from the messenger or from the user's Gmail account. There's no limit for the variety of customers you can have on the contact list. <br /><br />With that being said, I chose to give Google Talk a spin myself. The UI is easy to use and comprehend, with Internet calling, instant messaging, email, and of course, Google search. You will find no ad's to litter the Interface, that is stimulating. <br /><br />The user control's again are fairly cut and dry, it is a bit plain-looking, however; this in my opinion add's to it's functionality. Besides a lack of ad's, the only thing new about that could be the fact it is from Google. <br /><br />All in all, Google Talk is a decent messenger.

If you've a distaste for banner ad's or pop up's each and every time you begin your messenger, 'Gary' Talk ought to be a pleasant change of speed..
