Stay in touch with your contacts by calling them on Google Talk.

The program is simple to use and convenient, especially if you have business contacts that you need to stay in touch with while you're doing work on the computer. Once you create an account, all you have to do is log in and connect with the people you need to speak with. You can send traditional instant messages, but the feature that is enjoyed by many is video chatting. There is an option to chat with several people at one time if you need to hold a conference or meeting. All of the messaging features are done from your desktop, preventing you from logging into another site or opening a new tab.

You have the option to leave a voice message if the person you want to connect with isn't available at the time. Free VoIP calls can be made along with the standard video calls and messages. Another option with the program is that you can send files to your contacts. This is a simple program that doesn't rely on a lot of stickers and filters to send messages. It's just pure words that are sent to other people, making it a program that can be used by almost anyone who knows how to operate a computer system. There is an option of checking your Google mail account while you're using Google Talk. You'll also receive notifications if you get any new messages. The settings are easy to adjust to, and there are tips given if you aren't sure how to send or open messages. Your contacts are displayed on the screen. There is a way to sort them into favorite groups or block people you don't want to connect with.
