Google has released their new Google Talk beta (everything from Google is persistently beta it seems), yet another instant messaging app with voice capabilities. You'll need to have a gmail account to sign on. It downloads and installs simply, and sets up in about half a second.

It's very simple, even borderline lame in design. But Google has this way about making things happen. No doubt it will be a learning and growing product dev process for them. We will see.

FWIW, my Google Talk address is greg.pdx[at] (replace the [at] with @)

I'll run it for a bit and see how it goes, but MSN Messenger is going to be harder to beat, I think. Just like I have skype installed and use it sometimes, but MSN Messenger if where I do most of my chatting. I mean, it;s got INK, come on! ;)

My MSN IM address is still greg[at], of course.

Hi Ry - yeah, I use MSN Messenger everywhere - it's my main IM client. I've been on the road so I have not tried the new version yet - but I will now. :)
