FitzShivering: And Google Hangouts is actually pretty cool, FYI. I finally got a friend who was incapable of doing video chat with any other piece of software ("This Skype is confusing!") to do a video call, which is great!
mjones73: Anyone figure out how to tell if a user is online or not in Hangouts? Talk would give you their status.
heypete: FitzShivering: And Google Hangouts is actually pretty cool, FYI. I finally got a friend who was incapable of doing video chat with any other piece of software ("This Skype is confusing!") to do a video call, which is great!You've been able to do that with Google Talk in Gmail for years.I don't mind Google adding Hangouts as an option, or for supporting cool, shiny stuff in Hangouts...but keep the standard XMPP-based IM/chat service as well. I've been using it with Google Apps for years and I really don't want to switch to something else.
3punksandacat: There's also rumor of SMS integration, which might make me a convert, since I prefer my tablet.
Dragonflew: 3punksandacat: There's also rumor of SMS integration, which might make me a convert, since I prefer my tablet.I have tried to enable the SMS integration. It sent me a code to authorise it, but there is nowhere I can find to put the code.As for SMS on a tablet/computer, try DeskSMS. I use it all the time, I hate sitting in front of a perfectly good keyboard and using my phone to type my SMSs.

BolloxReader: Huh, something that I probably will never use to replace something I didn't even know was there. Saw the update, saw it was to replace something that was a real thing (if hidden deep within my app list), shrugged and said "OK" to get it off my update list because it wouldn't go away.Congrats Google, you annoyed me to replace one ignored app with another ignored app.

Kimpak: I didn't realize people hated gtalk(now hangout). I've been using it since it came out its always worked as good or better than any other IM app out there for me.
