Send/Receive Google Voice SMS Messages Using Google Talk

I've mentioned before that I'm trying to use Google Voice more, and one thing that I'm shocked Google hasn't done is tightly integrate SMS messages with the Google Talk instant messenger.

Why Gmail Video and Audio Chat are Important

Yesterday Google announced that Gmail users can start both audio and video conversations from within the web-based mail interface. Naturally that got a lot of people excited because you don't need to download any third-party program to get it running. You do, however, have to install a plugin on your computer though.

New Google Talk… Almost Google, Almost

Both you and I have been complaining for quite awhile that Google needs to provide an updated desktop version of the Google Talk instant messenger, and it looks like they are listening after all.

Communicate using Google Talk Chatback

Google has just introduced a new way to help site owners communicate more with their visitors.  It's called Google Talk Chatback and it's available to any website where you can add HTML content.

Google Talk Can Now Translate

At last, Google has released something that will benefit Google Talk  users too! Just yesterday they announced that new translation bots have been added to Google Talk.  That means that you can essentially "chat" with the bot, and whatever you say to them, they'll translate it back.  It works by adding a bot as one of your friends.  So for example, I added the Chinese speaking [...]

Dear Google, Don’t Shun Google Talk…

Hey Google, remember that Google Talk application you have? Yeah, the one that keeps getting ignored? You launched it back in 2005 and added a few features in 2006 (offline messaging and voice mailing), but since then it seems you've just forgotten about it. Now it looks like you're focusing all of your efforts on Gmail Chat and the flash based Google Talk gadget for personalized homepages.

I absolutely love Google Talk because of its simplicity, and the fact that I've got all of my friends using it is a huge plus. There is only one thing that I really dislike with the instant messenger, and it's that I can't change my status to away.
