Google Talk Open Federation


By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

The Google Talk blog and the Official Google Blog have announced that Google Talk is now an open federation product.

What is an open federation product? Well, this means that users of one service can communicate freely with customers of other networks such as e-mail and telephone service. Previously, IM and VoIP users had issues communicating with users across networks such as AOL IM, MSN and Yahoo! IM (although you could use such Jabber applications such as Trillian).
