Google Talk Announced Today – Goes Live Today

UPDATE: Google Talk was discontinued in 2015.

GoogleContinuing its rapid expansion into new product categories, Google has just today launched an instant messaging program called Google Talk. This comes just a few days after they introduced Google Sidebar, which pulls news stories, photographs, weather updates, stock quotes and other features onto your computer without opening a Web browser.  There had been anticipation of the new Google Talk product for a few days, as evidenced by this story in the Los Angeles Times. [sorry – that story is no longer on the LA Times website.]

Google Talk requires you to have a Gmail account, and is partially compatible with other IM clients. Currently, you need to download the free Google Talk application in order to actually talk with people across the Internet.
