A simple communication tool that is convenient and easy to use

Who is not familiar with Google Talk? Though I am using other communication tools like Skype and Tango, I still utilize this simple application especially with my family and friends. The layout of Google Talk is straightforward. All the options are already available in its interface. Since I open and use my Gmail account all the time, Google Talk has become very handy for me. I can start a video call, voice call and even include contacts in my current conversation. The status of my contacts is clearly visible so I know if they are online, offline or busy. On my end, I can set my status to invisible if I do not want my contacts to know that I am online. This option is convenient if I do not want to be disturbed. There are also emoticons that I use all the time though they are quite simple as compared to the available emoticons being offered in other applications. Overall, I will continue to use Google Talk since it is free and favorable for me.

Pros

  • Program’s interface is simple and straightforward
  • Free application and convenient to use

Cons

  • No other interesting feature compared to similar programs

Keep close contact with your family and peers with this simple application

With a wide selection of Google applications available, one program that I use all the time is Google Talk. It provides a quick way to be in touch with my friends and family. I also use it to communicate with my colleagues and acquaintances through instant messaging or voice calls. I can also utilize the video call option. I just need to have my headset ready. This basic tool also shows the current status of the people on my contact list. The people who are online or busy are on the top list. It helps me identify who is available for a simple chat or video call. You can also set a group chat if you want to converse with a group of people. It is easy to edit the settings if I want sound notifications to alert me of new chat messages. There is also an option if I want to activate the emoticons or not. Though Google Talk maybe a simple tool, it is an effective application to communicate with my list of contacts.

Pros

  • Free application that is convenient to use
  • Provides instant communication with contacts

Cons

  • Program has no other distinct feature

Although discontinued, Google Talk has been renamed since to Hangouts. It is now more popularly used in Google+ and alongside many other Google tools. However, non-Google+ users are still able to use it especially through Gmail.

Google Talk 2014, or GTalk, is a messenger app that is used to send messages to fellow Google users. Previously, it was only available for Gmail account holders only. Nowadays however, Google users can use it as well. Aside from sending and receiving messages, GTalk can enable its users to send documents, images, and other multimedia files.

GTalk can also enable users to send messages to mobile phone numbers, or send SMS. Include your friends and entertain them in a group chat. Add color to your messages by using emoticons and animated files. You can also engage in a video chat with a single recipient, or with a group of up to 10 people.

The most interesting part is that you can use Google Talk 2014 to connect with loved ones not only through your computer, but through smart phones as well. You can even leave messages for them when they are not currently connected.

Pros

  • Available for free use for all Google users
  • Simple, user-friendly interface makes it easy to use

Cons

  • Non-Gmail account holders are required to sign-up
