I don't really need one either. I just wanted to see if it would work. Nobody has it yet anyway so its not like I can talk to anyone on the network. Its just fun to know I can do itAbstract said:I don't need another service to offer me IM. I need a Mac program that offers me video IM without using AOL or whatever. And Mercury sucks.
I got iChat to work too, make sure when you creat a new account you choose Jabber in the account type and type in the correct server settings.xtbfx said:Can't get iChat to connect.. hmmm.
Well it seems there adding audio at least --> http://www.downloadsquad.com/2005/08/23/googe-talk-review/Stella said:I really hope Google add video conference to this ( and why not - to really compete against other services).
Google have had a good record of supporting Macs, so hopefully any video additions will be included in a Mac version.
I'd say the easiest way would be to get a Gmail account, which could be technically called a Google account, because it can be used for other things besides just Gmail and Google Talk. PM me if you need an invite.Yvan256 said:So, how do I get an account? I'm not a U.S.A. resident, I don't have a mobile phone, I don't have a Gmail account either.

They should do pretty good, since it's based on an open platform (Jabber) that is compatible with AIM, MSN, Yahoo, etc. The good thing is that you only need 1 account to talk to everyone, and if you have a GMail address you'll never forget your login info...Raven VII said:Wow. This is wild! Let's see how Google fares against AIM and MSN. It works flawlessly on iChat too. Too bad my buddylist is empty
