URL to the hosted talk gadget from Google

June 26th, 2007 · No Comments · general

So Google now allows us that make use of “Google Apps for your Domain” to use the Talk Gadget. Didn’t make my day, but it at least brighten up the time before coffee.

If you need the URL to get to your talk gadget for your domain, this is it:

http://hostedtalkgadget.google.com/a/yourdomain.com/talkgadget/client

Replace “yourdomain.com” with your domain. If you are one of those who thought that was obvious – yes, I would have thought so too. But trust me, you get some pretty literal people.

Now use this URL, and the trick described here to get Talk in your Firefox sidebar all day.

Big issues with the Talk Gadget:

  • It does not connect all my buddies from other Jabber servers. Most notably the twitter IM bot.
  • It does not connect my MSN transport. Which means I can not talk to my one MSN buddy. You can get more info about MSN transports at bigblueball.com.

So all in all, its useful in a pinch when nothing else is around. But I’ll stick to gajim and Psi for now :-)
