New Google Talk Features: VoiceMail, File Transfer and Music Status

Google Talk just got updated, the new features are:

  • File Transfer
    With this top requested new feature, you can send unlimited files and folders to your friends through Google Talk. There is no restriction on the file type or size and the peer-to-peer transfer is fast and reliable.
  • Voicemail
    If a friend isn’t around to answer your call, now you can leave a voicemail. You can even leave voicemail messages for your friends who don’t use Google Talk–they’ll receive an email with the message attached as an audio file.
  • Music Status
    Listening to music while on Google Talk? Now you can let your friends see what you’re listening to by selecting “Show current music track” in your status menu. Your status message will change when your song does!

Update: The version available for download is still the, the update is only available through the “Update Now” button on the Google Talk menu, but it seems that it doesn’t work all the time, so here’s a direct link to the new version

  1. They will get there… It’s a matter of time. I believe that GAIM and Gtalk will merge at some point in the future.
