Google Talk Chatback

talk.JPGGoogle Talk has just launched a new feature which allows your web page viewers send instant messages to your Google Talk account. It’s named Google Talk Chatback, so-called for the reason that your visitors are also given the chance to talk back to you. This is by adding a small badge on any side of your web page, blog or any personal online profile which has a direct link to your Google Talk account. This badge shows your nickname and your status message. Your random web page viewers, even without a Google Talk account, will have a direct contact with you by sending instant messages on this widget. This is web-based so your visitors don’t need to download anything to do the chatting. It is most likely similar to one of the features of the GrandCentral (posted earlier), a webcall button, which is also added to your website or blog, the only difference is the the way they are being used, an IM and an VoIP.
