Google Talk Guru Combines Instant Messaging with Search
An experimental app allows people to get information like sports results, weather forecasts and definitions via chat.
As a search powerhouse, Google must look for fresh ways to present results. Google Talk Guru, a new app is one of the latest experiments released from Google Labs and offers online chatters an integrated instant messaging and search experience. The app provides a chat session where anyone can ask certain questions and receive responses from an automated bot. Currently, Guru can only answer certain questions from a limited number of commands and categories, however, like other Google Labs apps, it may evolve and improve.
