View Full Version : Messages does not work with Google Talk

Hello MacRumors Forums
Today I found out that Mac OS X Mountain Lion has come out (a sneak peak), and also Messages beta has been available.
But when I installed it and tried to message to a friend with Google Talk, it wouldn't send.
Messages kept on telling me that this person did not have iMessage, and I couldn't send a word.
Anyone else having this problem? I know that Messages is still in beta, but I think that Messages shouldn't be this flawed to be beta.
A Snapshot will be uploaded.

imessage only works to mac, iphone, ipad and ipod touch! If you want to google talk just open the other chat windows.

Case Closed. Found a way.
Went to Window, then Buddies, and I was able to connect with Google Talk.
I can finally chat with Google Talk in Messages!
