The major features I like about Google Talk are:
- Its interface isn’t busy and cluttered, unlike Yahoo’s mess.
- Its integration with Google’s Gmail is convenient: it saves chat conversations in your gmail account, so you can easily review past conversations.
I wish Google Talk had the ability to chat with more than one person at a time, as in a chat room. I’m sure they’ll be adding that feature soon enough.
I’m surprised the internet’s spine has not been broken yet with the useless traffic that’s increasing every day.
Note: Your version of Google Talk may not have these new features yet. Google tends to roll out updates to clients over a week or so.
