    New Google Messenger!: Google Talk (beta)

    Thought I would share this with everyone!


    They say talk is cheap. Google thinks it should be free. Google Talk enables you to call or send instant messages to your friends for free–anytime, anywhere in the world. Google Talk offers you:

    • Choice: Get in touch over email, IM or a call
    • Quality: Talk through your computer but hear your friends as if they were in the same room
    • Convenience: Your Gmail contacts are pre-loaded into Google Talk so inviting or talking to your friends is just a click away
    Google Talk is in beta and requires a Gmail username and password.

    http://www.google.com/talk/

    I can hook you up with a gmail invite if you do not have gmail already. Just pm me. All you have to do is download the software and sign in using your gmail un and password.

    If you would like to invite me to GoogleTalk with you then add me as BigDaddyKyle@gmail.com

    Everyone else feel free to post your name on google and I'll add you on mine.


    TTFN,

    My husband would kill me if I downloaded anything! He is constantly having to "clean" up the computer. Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Google created this to compete against Skype http://skype.com and I think Skype is so much better. It's free (has a phone which costs $0.02/min if you use), but free Skype-to-Skype calls.

    If anyone has that and is interested in talking, send me a PM or IM me on AIM.

    I tried to give Google Talk a try, but it is just too much for me with Skype being so awesome.
