Google
Google
Talk
Talk
(also known as Google
Google
Chat[1]) was an instant messaging service that provided both text and voice communication.[2] The instant messaging service is colloquially known as "Gchat", "Gtalk", or "Gmessage" to its users.[3] Google
Google
Talk
Talk
was also the name of the client applications previously offered by Google
Google
to use the service. Google
Google
Talk
Talk
applications were available for Microsoft Windows,[4] Android,[5] BlackBerry,[6] and Chrome OS[7] operating systems. A Google
Google
Talk
Talk
mobile web app had also been previously available.[8] In February 2015, the Windows client was discontinued and ceased to work, with Google
Google
recommending users to use Google
Google
Hangouts instead.[9][10] Users of Windows client were instructed to migrate to the Google
Google
Hangouts app on the Chrome browser platform.[11] It remained possible to connect to Google
Google
Talk
Talk
with compatible third-party apps such as Pidgin and Gajim.[9] Google
Google
dropped support for XMPP
XMPP
federation in May 2014, meaning that it no longer supports communicating with other XMPP
XMPP
servers.[12] However, users can still chat with other non- Google
Google
Talk
Talk
users using third-party XMPP
XMPP
clients such as Adium and Pidgin.[9][not in citation given][13][not in citation given]

Features[edit] History of interoperability[edit] Google
Google
announced that a major goal of the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
service is interoperability (which was abandoned around 2013). Google
Google
Talk
Talk
used XMPP
XMPP
to provide real-time extensible messaging and presence events, including offline messaging and voice mailing. Google
Google
Talk
Talk
supported messaging with any service provider that supports the XMPP
XMPP
protocol. This included EarthLink, Gizmo5, Tiscali, NetEase, Chikka, MediaRing, and, according to Google, "thousands of other ISPs, universities, corporations and individual users."[14] Other XMPP
XMPP
clients, such as Pidgin and Psi,[15] were compatible[16] with Google
Google
Talk's text chat (IM), allowing text chat with XMPP
XMPP
users on a variety of platforms. In May 2013, Google
Google
announced its plan to drop support for the open XMPP
XMPP
standard in favor of proprietary Google+
Google+
Hangouts.[17] Product integration[edit] Google
Google
Talk
Talk
was integrated into Gmail
Gmail
where users could send instant messages to other Gmail
Gmail
users. As it worked within a browser, the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
client did not need to be downloaded to send instant messages to Gmail
Gmail
users. Conversation logs were automatically saved to a "Chats" area in the user's Gmail
Gmail
account. This allowed users to search their chat logs and have them centrally stored in their Gmail
Gmail
accounts. For a long time, it was not possible to directly download chat logs that were not attached to an email conversation,[18][19] although some workarounds had been found.[20][21] However, on September 15, 2011, Google announced a new feature of its Google
Google
Takeout program that allows users to download chat logs via IMAP.[22] Google
Google
also integrated Google
Google
Talk
Talk
with Orkut. This enabled Google Talk
Talk
users to interact with registered Orkut
Orkut
users, by sending and receiving "scraps" within Orkut. Orkut
Orkut
has since been shut down. Google
Google
Talk
Talk
Gadget is a web-based module that may be embedded in i Google
Google
and other web pages, allowing text chat with users of Google Talk.[23] Note: this functionality has recently been discontinued without any real announcement, likely in the face of the release of the Google
Google
Hangouts services. Google+
Google+
is integrated into Google
Google
Talk. In the standalone client and the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
widget embedded into Gmail
Gmail
and Google+, Google+ contacts appear in the contacts list; their respective circles are shown in Google+'s iteration of the widget. Voice and Video[edit] It is possible to place and receive phone calls from within Gmail
Gmail
by using Google
Google
Talk. In order to receive calls, however, the user must upgrade to a full Google Voice
Google Voice
account.[24] Initially, users outside of the US could not upgrade to a full Google Voice
Google Voice
account or receive phone calls in Gmail.[25] (Outbound calling through Gmail
Gmail
does not require Google Voice
Google Voice
and is available in many countries outside the US.)[26] Google
Google
Talk
Talk
allows users to leave a voicemail for a contact whether or not they are signed into Google
Google
Talk.[27] Messages can be up to 10 minutes long and users can choose to have them sent to their Gmail
Gmail
inbox. Messages can be sent with or without first ringing the recipient's phone number. Google
Google
also provides a Voice and Video Chat browser plugin for Google Talk[28] (not to be confused with the standalone Google
Google
Talk
Talk
client) that supports voice and video chat between Gmail
Gmail
users.[29] The plugin is available for Windows (XP, Vista, and 7), Mac OS X
Mac OS X
(only on Intel-based Macs),[30] and Linux
Linux
(Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, and OpenSUSE packages available, but the binaries work on other systems).[31] The plugin must be downloaded and installed, but otherwise seamlessly integrates into the Gmail
Gmail
interface. Encryption[edit] The connection between the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
client and the Google
Google
Talk server is encrypted, except when using Gmail's chat over HTTP, a federated network that doesn't support encryption, or when using a proxy like IMLogic.[citation needed] End-to-end messages are unencrypted. Google
Google
plans to add support for chat and call encryption in a future release.[citation needed] Some XMPP
XMPP
clients natively support encryption with Google
Google
Talk's servers. It is possible to have end-to-end encryption over the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
network using OTR (off-the-record) encryption using other chat clients like Adium (for Mac) or Pidgin (for Linux
Linux
and Windows). Google's version of "Off the Record" is not OTR (off-the-record) encryption. Enabling "off the record" inside Gmail's Chat turns off logging of messages, but does not enable encryption. Offline messaging[edit] On October 31, 2006, Google
Google
introduced offline messaging to Google Talk. This allows users to send messages to their contacts, even if they are not signed in. They will receive the messages when they next go online even if the user who has sent it is offline. This only works between Gmail-accounts though, and doesn't work between Google
Google
Talk servers and other XMPP
XMPP
servers. Mobile device compatibility[edit] On June 30, 2006, Nokia released new software for their Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, that included Google
Google
Talk
Talk
as one of the compatible VoIP
VoIP
clients, because of the XMPP-based software.[32] Another Google Talk-compatible device is Sony's mylo, released on September 15, 2006. A Google
Google
Talk
Talk
client is also available for BlackBerry
BlackBerry
devices from the BlackBerry
BlackBerry
site.[33] Google
Google
Talk
Talk
support is also integrated into Google
Google
Android devices, but does not support voice and video calls below Android version 2.3.4. This was released in April 2011 for the Google
Google
Nexus S.[34] However, given that Google
Google
Talk
Talk
provides XMPP
XMPP
protocol, most mobile phones for which a suitable XMPP
XMPP
client exists[35] could also offer Google
Google
Talk
Talk
service, at least theoretically (depending on the handset, the user may encounter security warnings because of unsigned Java ME MIDlets or limits put in place by the mobile service provider). Mobile clients specially designed for Google
Google
Talk
Talk
exist as well.[36] Most phones support the IMPS protocol, and there are hybrid XMPP/IMPS networks (through XMPP
XMPP
transports, or specially designed hybrid servers),[37] which can also contact Google
Google
Talk
Talk
users. The Google Talk
Talk
service itself is unusable from IMPS (that means, one cannot log with their Gmail
Gmail
account, but they can talk with their Gmail
Gmail
friends with their IMPS account from their mobile phone).[clarification needed] For most smartphones, including Symbian-based as well as Android, third-party applications such as Nimbuzz
Nimbuzz
and Fring include support for Google
Google
Talk
Talk
accounts, including VoIP
VoIP
calls. Text formatting[edit] Google
Google
Talk
Talk
does not provide the user with a menu for text formatting. Nevertheless, Google
Google
Talk
Talk
does support some text formatting features like making text bold and italic. To write a message in bold, a user should type the required text between two asterisks (*), for example, *this text would be bold in Google
Google
Talk*. Similarly for making text italic, one should put text between underscores (_) and for strike-through in text content, one should put text in between dashes (-). This only functions in some of the Google
Google
native tools, and does not always function as expected when received from other XMPP
XMPP
clients. History[edit]

A screenshot showing the Google
Google
Talk, Labs Edition preview release

2005[edit] On August 22, 2005, The New York Times
The New York Times
reported a rumor of a Google-branded "communications tool" service[38] and the Los Angeles Times provided details. Subsequently, the subdomain talk.google.com was found to have an active XMPP
XMPP
server.[39] Two methods of logging into the server were discovered soon after and the ensuing response by eager bloggers revealed to numerous others how to log in before the official release by Google. On the evening of August 23, many logged-in users using port 5222 to connect were disconnected and unable to log back in. Users using port 5223 to connect were still able to log in, and at 04:12:52 UTC
UTC
those users received a broadcast instant message from gmail.com, an apparently official username used by Google
Google
to communicate with their user base, that stated "The broken link has been fixed. Thanks for being our first users!" Port 5222-connectivity was found to have been re-enabled. On August 24, Google
Google
Talk
Talk
was officially launched. On December 15, 2005, Google
Google
released libjingle,[40] a C++
C++
library to implement Jingle, "a set of extensions to the IETF's Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) for use in voice over IP (VoIP), video, and other peer-to-peer multimedia sessions."[41] Libjingle is a library of the code that Google
Google
uses for peer-to-peer communication, and was made available under a BSD license.[42] 2006[edit] In 2006, Google
Google
reported that they were working on adding new features such as supporting SIP in a future release, which would broaden the userbase for the program.[43] On January 17, 2006, Google
Google
enabled server-to-server communications, federating itself with any XMPP
XMPP
server that supports the dialback protocol.[44] On February 7, 2006, Gmail
Gmail
received chat functionality,[45] using Ajax for server–browser communication, and was integrated with Google Talk. It also added the ability to chat with a built-in XMPP
XMPP
client. In August 2006, Google
Google
and eBay announced that they would look into making Google
Google
Talk
Talk
users able to communicate with Skype: "The companies will also explore interoperability between Skype
Skype
and Google Talk
Talk
via open standards to enable text chat and online presence."[46] However, with Microsoft's acquisition of Skype
Skype
on May 10, 2011, such interoperability might have been suspended between Google
Google
and eBay.[47] Google
Google
integrated Google
Google
Talk
Talk
with Orkut
Orkut
on November 8, 2006. 2007[edit] On March 14, 2007, Google
Google
released the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
Gadget, an Adobe Flash-based Talk
Talk
module that can be added to i Google
Google
(formally the Google
Google
Personalized Homepage) or embedded in any web page, thus, allowing one to chat from any operating system which is supported by Adobe Flash
Adobe Flash
Player as long as Adobe Flash
Adobe Flash
Player is installed.[48] A screen shot was posted on May 18, 2007, as part of the Google
Google
Apps presentation, showing some phone integration in Google
Google
Talk.[49] On March 2, 2008. a Google
Google
engineer confirmed they had been using it internally for some time.[50] On November 26, 2007, Google
Google
Talk
Talk
released Group Chat capabilities. Before this, users could chat with only one person per window. Group chat allows many users to chat with each other in an environment similar to IRC. On December 6, 2007, Google
Google
upgraded its Gmail
Gmail
integrated chat to include AOL Instant Messenger
AOL Instant Messenger
chat capability. This allows Gmail
Gmail
users to sign into the AIM chat service and communicate with any AIM user while still being signed on to the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
service. The Google Talk
Talk
gadget and client have not been upgraded to enable this feature yet, and no announcement has been made as to when it will be made available. 2008[edit] On February 25, 2008, Google
Google
added a feature called "Chatback", which allows a Google
Google
Talk
Talk
account owner to chat with people who do not have one. The account owner first has to create a badge, which can be included in webpages. This badge shows the current availability of the owner. Clicking on the badge results a chat request notification to the owner who can respond by clicking on the specified URL. During the conversation, both parties have to use the Google
Google
Talk
Talk
Gadget and both parties remain anonymous to each other, even the Google
Google
Account name of the owner is not revealed to the other peer. On November 11, 2008, Google
Google
Chat (voice and video chat) was launched enabling computer to computer voice and video chat.[28] Clues from one of the first Google
Google
Chrome builds in December 2008 suggest that a new Talk
Talk
client is in the works.[51] As XMPP
XMPP
Jingle specifications[52] became a Draft Standard, Google updated libjingle to version 0.5.1[53] and stated that " Google
Google
Talk
Talk
is in the process of being updated to be in full compliance with the Jingle specifications."[54] Google
Google
has a version of Google
Google
Talk
Talk
called Google
Google
Talk, Labs Edition, though it lacks many features of Google
Google
Talk's other releases.[55] 2012[edit] On April 20, 2012, Google
Google
announced that it was shutting down the mobile web app for Google
Google
Talk.[56] In June 2012, Google
Google
announced that they were planning to revamp the chat experience by merging Google
Google
Talk
Talk
with Hangouts and Google Messenger to reduce confusion and fragmentation.[57] At the Google
Google
I/O Conference 2013 held at San Francisco, California, Google
Google
announced that they were replacing Google
Google
Talk, Google+
Google+
Messenger and the original Google+
Google+
Hangout video chat service with Google+
Google+
Hangouts.[58] 2013[edit] On May 15, 2013, Google’s manager of real-time communication products, Nikhyl Singhal, stated at Google
Google
I/O that the move to Google+
Google+
Hangouts will mean that XMPP
XMPP
(the protocol that allowed Google Talk
Talk
to interoperate with other vendors and applications) will not be supported in Hangouts. Mr. Singhal stated that as long as Google
Google
Talk is available, 3rd party client apps could be expected to continue to work.[12] 2014[edit] On October 30, 2014, Google
Google
announced on their Apps Updates blog that "The Google
Google
Talk
Talk
app for Windows will continue to work for approximately two months before being turned off".[10] 2015[edit] On February 3, 2015, Google
Google
sent a system message to users stating, " Google
Google
Talk
Talk
app for Windows will stop working on Feb 16, 2015. It is replaced by the new Hangouts Chrome app." On February 13, 2015, Google
Google
developer Mayur Kamat posted a clarification that XMPP
XMPP
service relied-on by third-party chat apps would continue after the deprecation of the Windows-specific Google Talk
Talk
client.[13] After Google
Google
officially stopped supporting Google
Google
Talk
Talk
for Windows on February 23, 2015, the application continued to function normally during an apparent grace period lasting until February 28. As of that date, connection attempts returned an error message stating "Username and password do not match." Those users received a notification e-mail stating, in part: "We noticed you recently tried using the Google
Google
Talk app for Windows. We wanted to let you know that this was discontinued on February 23rd, 2015. We recommend giving Hangouts a try so you can chat with all your Google
Google
contacts." The Google
Google
Talk
Talk
for Windows application will purportedly still work by connecting through applications using the Jabber protocol including Pidgin and Gajim
Gajim
but cannot connect directly through Google
Google
or Gmail.[59] 2017[edit] The Google
Google
Talk
Talk
App for Android and the Google
Google
Chat tool in Gmail
Gmail
were discontinued on June 26, 2017, and no longer function.[60][61][62] Users may still continue to use 3rd party XMPP
XMPP
clients to connect to the legacy Google
Google
talk server, but only for 1-on-1 chat with Hangouts users.[61][63]
