We had been using GTalk for ages now. Its a software that allows us to chat to Google friends without going into Gmail/Google Plus.
But here is a lightweight alternative to GTalk, its a Chrome extension by Google called as Chat for Google.
What’s new in the ‘Chat for Google’ extension? Nothing much but I feel its better and lightweight as compared to GTalk or any other chating software that we use.
Here are some features of the Chat for Chrome extension,
- Nothing to download. Just add the extension to chrome, click the quick launch icon and start chatting.
- Chat window remains open even when you browse from one tab to another.
- Do Google+ Hangout, phone calls right from Chat for Google.
