A Guide to Alternative Google Talk Clients

In this guide, learn more about alternative clients compatible with Google Talk. Looks at clients compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. All clients listed are available free of charge.

Unfortunately, Google states that the Google Talk software for the desktop is only for Microsoft Windows XP or newer (such as Windows Vista and 7), leaving out both Mac users and Linux users.

The plug-in

Fortunately, if you're a Mac user with OS X 10.4 or greater (or just want an online client), you can download a plug-in from the same site that allows you to chat on several Google web pages, including in Gmail. This is very convenient if you already use Google's services, as everything is all in one place. Of course, an online client might not suit your needs.

The gadget

Google offers a gadget that is compatible with their Google Desktop software, but unfortunately only for Windows.

Other alternatives

If you're using Linux, want a desktop client on OS X or simply want to use something different than one of Google's clients, there are plenty of free alternatives out there; however, only Empathy appears to support voice and video chat.

Empathy is the default instant messaging client for the window manager GNOME, and comes by default with many distributions, including Ubuntu. According to the page on live.gnome.org, it is compatible with both Google Talk video and voice features; however, there have been mixed reports as to how well these features work on the Ubuntu Forums. Empathy is not compatible with Windows or OS X.

If you have OS X (10.4 or higher), you can use iChat to connect to Google Talk. Google has a help page on configuring the client to work with Google Talk.

Pidgin is an open source client with support for a slew of protocols, is available for both Windows and OS X, and supports Google Talk. A portable version is also available.

On the other hand, Adium is an open source OS X only client, with similar support for protocols to Pidgin.

Kopete is the KDE window manager's default messaging client, and according to the Kopete Instant Messenger supports the Jabber protocol. It is available on Windows through The KDE on Windows Project.

According to the Psi website, the Psi client is designed specifically for the Jabber protocol that Google Talk's instant messaging is based on, so it might be a better choice if you don't need support for other protocols. Psi is open source and is available for Windows, Linux and OS X.

The open source Gajim also only works with Jabber, and is available for download for Linux and Windows.

Miranda IM is open source and available for Windows.

There are, of course, clients that aren't listed above that are compatible with Jabber and Google Talk.

Remember, sometimes it's better to experiment and see what works best for you.
