It looks like Google Talk is live!

I’m signed in right now, with these iChat Jabber account settings. I’ve gotten reports that it works for Adium too.

Update: Looks like Google Talk has been officially released. They only have a client for Windows right now, but provide instructions on using Jabber-compatible IM clients on other platforms.

    Hi,

    Yes the type chat works. But does voice work as well between iChat on OSX and Google Talk on WinXp?

    I see many ill-informed posts or misguiding posts from people who are claiming that voice works as well between the two platforms.

    Let me know if you know something.

    Thanks,
    Himanshu
