    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

    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!
