A new service from Google will link its instant-messaging service to Gmail, letting users contact each other over email, IM or a VoIP call. A downloadable program called Google Talkwill allow users to chat via IM and then talk to contacts on Google Talk by clicking on a ‘call’ button in an open chat window or by clicking on the phone icon next to names on the contact list. Digital Lifestyles comments:
