Gtalk has group chat feature?

review from ClifNotes, Aug 2007, permalink tag20tag|tagtagtag


I've always wondered why Google Talk (Gtalk) never had a group chat feature in it. That's just one of the reasons why I either use Meebo.com or Gaim to access my instant messenger services.


Now I find out that it sort of does have this feature but it's actually in a web browser form of the program.


Below is a snip from a blog post that shows you how to use the Google Talk Gadget in the Side Bar in Firefox.


Quote from the blog

First, open the talkgadget client webpage (or load Google Talk in Sidebar) and sign in using your Google Account / GMail credentials. Next, initiate a conversation with any of your Google Talk contacts who's online and then click the "Group Chat" button.


That's it. You just have to invite your other Google Talk friends to this private Google conference room. And there's no limit on the maximum number of participants that can join your Gtalk conference session.
