Tips for IM Client

It’s been a pleasure to watch Google Talk enter the over-saturated niche of popular instant messages and then quickly dominate. I am Google Talk user myself. I can vaguely understand why I ultimately chose it over other IMs I would use; probably because most of my contacts have only one thing in common: Gtalk.

So today I am sharing a few best tips on how to make the most of your Gtalk:

Translate using Google Talk (the feature runs on Google Translate). Just add any of the bots below (there may be many more) and send them messages of the text you want to translate):

ar2en@bot.talk.google.com from Arabic into English
de2en@bot.talk.google.com from German into English
fr2en@bot.talk.google.com from French into English
el2en@bot.talk.google.com from Greek into English
es2es@bot.talk.google.com from Spanish into English
ja2en@bot.talk.google.com from Japanese into English
ko2en@bot.talk.google.com from Korean into English
en2nl@bot.talk.google.com from Dutch into English
ru2en@bot.talk.google.com from Russian into English
zh2en@bot.talk.google.com from Chinese into English

Featured Google Talk client: Digsby

DigsBy is by far my favorite third-party Google talk application not because it offers some extra-ordinary Gmail possibilities (well, it does have some cool GTalk enhancements) but because it integrates all my major IMs and social media networks in one handy tool. The platform it supports include:

  • IMs: GTalk, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Facebook chat;
  • Email notifications: Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL mail;
  • Social networks: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace.

Some cool features I am personally using:

  • For each social network add as many accounts as you want;
  • Sort Gtalk (and other) contacts into groups (!);
  • Set tracking for any GTalk buddy: e.g. get notified when some person signs in or changes the status message;
  • See all the contact info when hovering over;
  • Sort contacts by name, status,
  • Reply right from the pop-up;
  • Manage multiple conversations with tabbed conversation windows;
  • Set your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn status right from Digsby;
  • Synchronize your settings and accounts between computers.
