What is Google Talk?
Google is one of the biggest, most popular search engines in the world, but that is not all the company offers. Among their many free features is something called Google Talk which is used with Microsoft Windows. This program offers instant chat messaging as well as VoIP, which stands for voice over Internet protocol. This technology allows you to make and receive phone calls from practically anywhere in the world for far less than you'd pay using a landline. If you already use Gmail, then you may already be familiar with Google Talk. It is the fourth most popular instant chat messaging application on the Internet today.
You can use Google Talk with a Mac, however you will need to use it within the iChat application as it cannot be directly installed and used as it can with Windows. The Android is an application for smartphones that uses the Google browser, so you can most definitely use Google Talk on your Android phone in addition to many other applications. What's great about Google Talk is that it is free to download, and free to use. You can send instant messages and make VoIP calls to anyone in the world who is also using Google Talk. And, your Gmail contacts are already loaded when you download the application.
Another great feature of this application is that you can video chat. All and the person you are chatting with will need, besides Google Talk, is a webcam and of course headphones with a microphone. Of course you will need headphones with a microphone to make and receive calls as well. This technology works with Google, iGoogle and orkut. Video chatting allows you to not only hear the person you are talking to but see them as well. It's a wonderful way to stay in touch when you are miles apart from friends, family or even business colleagues.
It should be noted that although phone calls to and from the United States and Canada are free, there is a small charge for international calls. When compared to other applications and landline calls, you will see the savings you can get by using Google Talk. For example, calls to India are only 6 cents per minute, and calls to landlines in France are only 2 cents per minute. Rates for other countries, and mobile phones will vary, but Google has a convenient rate comparison chart you can view.
This application is great for travelers also. You can use Google Talk during travel as long as you have a smartphone with the application installed or a laptop with Wi-Fi Internet access and the necessary hardware (headset with microphone.) So, you can stay in touch on the road without using up mobile phone minutes. Whether you're on a roadtrip, in the office or at your home computer you can stay connected with the people you want and need to communicate with thanks to Google Talk.
So in summary, Google Talk is free to download and free for use in the U.S. and Canada, with inexpensive rates for other countries. You can instant message, make and receive VoIP calls and even video chat. You may want to shop around and compare this application to others like it, which should show you that it is quite economical. And with an Android phone, it is included with all the other great Google applications.
