    Google that talks back
    Google released their own VoIP tool. Google Talk is a downloadable Windows application that enables users to quickly and easily talk or send instant messages to their friends for free. Calls are made through your computer using the latest voice technology; all you need is an Internet connection, a microphone and a speaker. If you don't have a speaker or built-in microphone, you may want to consider buying a headset, which will also provide the best voice quality when using Google Talk.

    Google Talk is a great way to communicate with your friends without having to leave your computer. Ever just need to ask someone a quick question? Has planning for something over email gotten too complicated? Now you can get in touch with someone instantly without having to reach for the phone. You don't even need to reach for another address book. Your Gmail contacts are pre-loaded into Google Talk, so you can email, IM or talk to your friends with just a few clicks.

    Google Talk is simple and intuitive to use. There's no clutter, no pop-ups, no unnecessary software to install. And we think you'll like the Google Talk voice quality. In fact, we think you'll like it a lot; it's like your friend is sitting right next to you (and your voice will sound a lot better than it does on answering machines).

    To use Google Talk, you need Windows 2000, Windows XP (Home & Pro), or Windows Server 2003. You'll also need a minimum 56k dial up connection, but a broadband connection is recommended. To make voice calls, you'll need a microphone and speakers (for optimal voice quality, we recommend using a headset). Google Talk works with any computer speaker and microphone, such as the ones built into many PC laptops today, as well as with wired and wireless headsets and USB phones. We've created a list of recommended accessories for the best Google Talk experience.

    The downloadable Google Talk client is not compatible with Macintosh or Linux systems at this time. We look forward to offering support for more operating systems in the future.

    Google Talk also supports standards-based communication clients, which means that Gmail users can access the Google Talk service and exchange instant messages using other clients that support the standard XMPP protocol, such as Trillian, GAIM, iChat, Adium, and Psi. This allows users to access the Google Talk service for instant messaging from all major platforms, including OSX, Linux, and Windows.
