Google Talk Gadget Launched - Gtalk with Groupchat and Emoticons

Google yet again comes up with something new and this time its related to the Gtalk. Google haslaunched the new version of its chat messenger also known as Google talk gadget. Gtalk has added new features to its Instant messenger like the Group Chat service and Emoticons.

The advantage of this new feature is that you can include a conference call and can include more than one person in a chat session. This feature has really been missing in Google Talk when compared to other popular messengers like the Yahoo messenger or the MSN messenger.


The feature that excited me of the group chat is that the Conference or Group chat is not limited
to exactly three people but extended to an unlimite number or friends in your address book. Isnt that exciting ???

In order to launch the Google Talk gadget you can either goto http://www.google.com/talk/
and login with your google account. Once you have logged in you can click on the "Group chat" button on the Top of the chat window to start a Group chat session. Here is a screen shot of it.


Another interesting feature that Google has added is the Emoticons features which makes it very attractive. I really like this feature in Google Talk Gadget. Another feature of the Talk widget is the ability to embedd the Talk gadget in your website. Here is screen shot of adding the Talk widget in your web page and the emoticons on the Talk widget.




The webpage embed Gadget is available in 12 different colors for the users. Google is getting really innovative and yet another boost to the not so popular G-Talk? . Will it help G Talk messenger to Beat popular Messengers like the MSN, Yahoo.. What do you think.. of it ??

We have absolutely come a long ways from using the good old Smiley! With the new avatars available today, I hardly ever use the good old smiley. I have discovered a replacement with extreme viral and multi-media capabilities, that is 100% customizable and easy to use, even for me! A newly released site www.thelolfamily.com allows users to create a 3D fully animated avatar (gender, color, clothes, accessories, hair, movement, dances) and add music and scenery to the 3D avatar. The personalized avatar called "LOLs" can then be used as emoticons and display pictures when chatting with friends! That's not all... users can email links to their own personalized animation, and can send them directly to mobile phones from "The LOL Family" website for use as video-tones! This site offers users many other ways to enjoy their personalized 3D avatars. "The LOLs" can be saved on your PC for use as wallpaper, screen savers, fun video media, animated giffs, etc. The animations created by the users can be posted on websites by copying and pasting the embedded codes. This site also allows you to create personal widgets, with your own 3D avatar/ "personalized LOL" on it, showing some of your personal information that you have chosen to display when you customize your widget, adding a picture of your personalized LOL! The widget can be posted on line, and allows friends to send you text messages, from wherever the widget is posted!! The LOL Family then sends a message to their members, (a notification email is sent to their primary email account, informing The LOL Family member that they have received a new message on www.thelolfamily.com This possibilities offered to users by "The LOL Family" are endless, and users can create and share as many personalized 3D avatars called "LOLs" as they want for free! You should absolutely check this out... I can say with certainty that you have not seen anything like this before!
